PARTNERS RELIGIOUS EDUCATION FOR 2018-2019
The Archdiocese has changed the requirements for Confirmation which is now a TWO YEAR process. As we currently use every classroom and the library as well, this means we will cap our younger grades to allow for this change. We will only have TWO First Grade Classes next year… TWO First Grade and TWO Communion Classes in 2019-2020 and so on…
It’s more important than ever to review the Partners calendar to see if the schedule works for your family (due to holidays and Chicago Marathon, the dates are atypical.) We know that Sunday obligations are demanding and perhaps our program and attendance policy might not work for your family. Knowing that attendance will be closely monitored and that each space is at a premium, take an honest look at this calendar.
Because of our large waiting list and limited class sizes, at the end of the 2019 school year, those with more than the allowed three absences, will not be able to register for the following year.
Registrations for Partners Religious Education (PreK-7th/Confirmation) is closed. The BluePrints 8th Grade Experience, and the Foundations Youth Ministry Program is still open to all families online at www.signmeup.com/124927
Families attend the 9:30 mass and classes are held from 10:45 to Noon in the Frances Xavier Warde School on the first and third Sundays (with some exceptions) of the month from September through April.
