Religious Education Has Begun


If your family has not yet registered,
you may contact the RE Office for further information.
Monday through Thursday, 8:00 am until 1:00 pm
(708) 532-8211 or
religioused@stgeorge60477.org




FAMILY FAITH FORMATION


Registration forms have been mailed to Religious Ed families. Please complete and mail or email them back to the Religious Ed Office as soon as you are able.

We are eager to begin a new chapter of Family Catechesis and look forward to supporting our children and parents with prayer, learning, and fun activities. It is our hope that this new venture will strengthen our domestic churches and thereby fortify our larger community of faith here at Saint George.
If you have questions, feel free to CALL the Religious Ed Office at (708) 532- 8211 Monday through Thursday, between 8:00 AM and 1:00 PM or EMAIL us at religioused@stgeorge60477.org.

We encourage all of our families to continue to join our larger community in prayer at Mass
(either online or in person). Links to sign up for Mass are found on the Saint George website: www.stgeorge60477.org. And don’t forget that new helpers are always welcome to assist with the process of keeping our worship safe and healthy for all! To find out more, please call the Parish Office
at (708) 532-2243.

May you be blessed with health and peace!



As we embark upon the journey of supporting parents
in their role as primary catechists of their children,
we are adopting a new motto
for our family faith formation program.


DISCIPLES IN MISSION

Matthew 28:19-20 "Go, therefore, and make disciples
of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the
Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit,
teaching them to observe all that I have commanded
you and behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age."


This takes into account our individual and collective
responsibility to live out our baptismal call.
The Archdiocese of Chicago summarizes its
Renew My Church imperatives in the following manner,
"Renew My Church is first and foremost a journey of spiritual renewal.
Jesus is asking all of us--in light of our Baptism and Confirmation--
to work with the Holy Spirit in new and creative ways to:
Makes Disciples, Building Communities. and Inspire Witness."
In transforming our faith formation program at St. George this year,
it is our goal to journey with families on the path to fulfilling
theses imperatives.
We will support you as you lead the domestic churches of your homes.
