Grades 1 - 7

2019 - 2020 School Year Information

Due to the Coronavirus health crisis, and in conformity with new Archdiocesan policies, the Religious Education and Confirmation Programs will be suspended until further notice. We will keep you updated when we know classes will re-start. 

Important Information for the 2018 - 2019 School Year

Notice to parents of incoming 8th graders:  As mandated by the Archdiocese of Chicago, Confirmation is now a two-year program beginning in 8th grade.  To learn more about Confirmation please click here.

Registration Process

We have made improvements to our online registration process.  For parents who are enrolling multiple children in our Religious Education programs, you only need to complete one registration form.  You will then be prompted to select which classroom day (Monday or Tuesday) you would like to enroll each child.

Grades 6 and 7

Starting in the fall of 2019, St Patrick’s Religious Education will no longer be using the previous Impact program for sixth and seventh grade students. In response to a request for deeper faith formation, and social activities for our middle school students, Impact will extend to a full year program and EDGE will be re-introduced to the Parish. We believe this will create the best religious education experience for our middle school students, help integrate the students into the parish, and properly prepare them for the sacrament of Confirmation. 

Our middle school students will be using new text books which will have parent resources with each chapter. Parents may look at information about this program online. It is called Christ Our Life and there is information from Loyola Press under “family resources”, you can learn more by clicking here

Students will also have the opportunity to join in the EDGE program through youth ministry once a month to further their faith formation and get to know their fellow students. In June 2020 they will also have the opportunity for a service trip through youth ministry.
