Sacraments for Grade School Children

Do you have grade-school age children or grandchildren who were not baptized and now wish to do so?  Maybe they were baptized but never started or missed a few years of Faith Formation?  Maybe they wish to celebrate their 1st Holy Eucharist or Confirmation.  We understand and want to journey with you

Call the Family Faith Formation (FFF) Office at 630-894-5880 to schedule an appointment to learn more about preparing your child(ren) to celebrate these sacraments and to discuss your family’s faith journey.


Acknowledging parents as the primary educators of their children, we, the staff and volunteers, offer a partnership in echoing the Catholic faith for children. In order to assist parents and guardians, we promise:
  • To promote an environment of hospitality and Christian love
  • To provide a curriculum based on the guidelines established by the Diocese of Joliet and the principles of the National Catechetical Directory established by the U.S. Catholic bishops.
  • To provide teaching methods conducive to child development so that children can be engaged in active faith formation
  • To engage students in their own faith formation
  • To prepare catechists in their faith formation
