Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Mt.19, 14

The mission of Religious Education at St. Mary Star of the Sea is to assist families with the Catholic faith formation and education of their children. We have an 8 year spiral curriculum from Levels 1 – 8, as well as a high school component. We welcome students at every level and are happy to help families wherever they are on their faith journey.

We follow the guidelines set by the Office of Catechesis and Youth Ministry of the Archdiocese of Chicago and require a minimum of two full years of Religious Education classes prior to a child’s reception of each sacrament.

Our classes meet on Wednesday evenings from 6:00 PM – 7:45 PM. We begin at the end of August and continue through April. Registration takes place in July. (Click link for registration forms.) Sacramental certificates (Baptism for everyone and Communion if applicable) are required for registration as well as the registration fee. (Click link for tuition/ fee information.)

Students who are older than 2nd grade who wish to receive the Sacrament of Eucharist must attend our regular Wednesday evening sessions for a minimum of 2 years, as well as attending our Special Sacraments Program during the second year. (These classes are on Sunday mornings. Click link for more information.)
