Special Religious Education is a Religious Education Program for children and adults with special needs. Time for prayer, fellowship, and sacramental preparation are key components of the program. It is run by a caring and generous group of people dedicated to building a faith community with those who are often left out and overlooked.

Classes run from 10 AM to noon at St. Celestine Worship Site and we usually meet every other week from September through April. If you can’t get to class, please give us a call. Those preparing for the sacraments are expected to be at every class. Staff arrive about 9:30 AM and leave at 12:30 PM. We meet in the St. Celestine Gym, Annex, and Kindergarten room for class.

Please call Mary Murphy, Special RE Coordinator at the Pastoral Center at 708-453-2555 or email her at murphyme2000@yahoo.com for more information.
