Religious Education » About Our RE Program

In the Rite of Baptism parents, godparents and family members accept the responsibility of raising the child in the Catholic faith. Many children in our area are not being properly educated and or participating in the faith-life of our parish. It is our duty to encourage and support these children in their faith-life.

Classes begin at 9:30 am on Saturdays and all students should enter at the school entrance located at 3017 N. 77th Avenue. See Religious Education Calendar for Class Schedule.

Our purpose at St. Celestine Religious Education Program is to help our students build their connections to God through prayer, to incorporate God into their everyday lives and to recognize opportunities to enhance their relationship with God. Here at St. Celestine Parish we offer Religious Education to Students in Grades 1-8 who during the week attend a public or home school setting. We feel that with your child’s family experience, the classroom experience and participation in the St. Celestine faith community, your child’s faith will develop and grow.

If you have any questions about our program please contact Julie McGuire, CRE via phone at 708-453-2555 or via email at

May God bless you and your family!!!
