Children’s Religious Education

The passing on of our Catholic Faith and traditions is the key focus of our Religious Education (RE) program. We see our mission as supportive to families as they raise their children in the Catholic faith.

In addition to regular classes, during the course of the year, special “all-family” events will be held requiring the participation of the whole family. Usually these are liturgical events to help the children experience the richness of our Catholic traditions and prayers. Families are encouraged and expected to attend Mass each weekend.

For students preparing for Sacraments, there is a two year minimum of preparation in keeping with Archdiocesan policies. Families will receive a supplemental calendar outlining what is required.  This calendar is provided during the academic year in which the Sacraments of Eucharist or Confirmation will be celebrated.

Registration

Registration is currently being accepted for the 2021-2022 academic year.  For more information, or to register, please call the office: 847-437-6208 ext. 132. Our Religious Education Coordinator is Mrs. Maria Silva.

A Baptismal Certificate is required for each child (unless your child was baptized at St. Cecilia). Please include this Certificate with your registration paperwork. Upon completion, all the forms and fees may be dropped off at the Parish Office or mailed to: St. Cecilia Parish, 700 S. Meier Road, Mount Prospect, IL 60056.

RCIA/C

The RCIA/C is a process for Children who have reached the age of 7 and have not yet been baptized.  For children at St. Cecilia, the process includes weekly class sessions with their peers at the appropriate level and attendance at Mass each week. During the 2nd year of preparation, additional sessions with parents are scheduled for more proximate preparation to Baptism and/or other Sacraments.  For more information or to enroll your child, please contact our office.
