Children’s Faith Formation


A Call to Ministry…Be a Catechist!

A catechist is someone that helps young people come to know Christ and the riches of our Catholic faith.  You don’t need a degree in Theology to be a catechist, just 

  • The love of your faith
  • The desire to share it with our children

If you feel the Holy Spirit urging you to consider this ministry, give us a call to find out more. Classes meet on Tuesdays or Saturdays (Sept-Apr) Openings exist in all grade levels.  Training and support provided!

Faith Formation Registration

We are continuing to accept registrations for Fall 2018.  Forms are available online or at the Faith Network desk.    Have a first grader?  Be sure to register your child for this fall as First Communion requires two years of preparation, both grade 1 & grade 2.  Confirmation requires three years of preparation.

Questions?  contact Valerie Della Penna in the Faith Formation Office at 630-894-5880 x3019 or at valeried@stwalterchurch.com 


Joyful Disciple

Alyssa Solomon

Why am I a follower of the Lord Jesus?

I was raised in the faith by my parents, and I choose to continue that faith. The Lord Jesus has changed my life, so I seek to preserve my relationship with Him.

How do I follow Him?

Since I was young, I have done much volunteer work, as well as become an altar server at St. Walter. However, most of my involvement with the Church is through singing. I have involved myself in the Mass when I was a young girl by singing with the St. Walter's Children's Choir and later the Teen Choir. I have been a member of the St. Isidore's Simbang Gabi Choir and t. Walter's Simbang Gabi Group, which has recently formed due to the new practice of this Filipino tradition at our parish. I am grateful to the Lord Jesus that I have such a love for singing, and show my thankfulness to Him by leading the congregation in singing thanks and praise..
