We believe our children need to know their Faith in order to live their Faith. When they truly understand what our Faith is about, they want to go out into the world and spread the good news through words and deeds. 

Religious education Classes are offered on Monday evenings from
4:30 -5:45pm for age 4 - 6th grade
4:30 - 6:00pm for Year 1 and Year 2 Confirmation Students (7th and 8th grade)

Adaptive Resources Available for Children with Special Needs
Resources are available to better adapt lessons for children with special needs. For more information regarding these adaptive materials visit, or contact Christine Pershey at

►Students typically make their First Reconciliation and receive their First Holy Communion in 2nd grade and Confirmation in 8th grade. If you child is older and has missed these Sacraments, please contact us prior to registering. Please Note:  The Diocese of Joliet requires children to have 2 years of Religious Education before receiving Sacraments.

Our catechists and volunteers are here because they want to share their love for children and of the Catholic Faith with the youth of St. Raymond.  Parents and families are encouraged to assist and attend the events we sponsor through the year. We are partners in the religious education of y ur children and look forward to your family joining our family.

If you are interested in volunteering on Monday evenings, please contact the Director of Faith Formation, Christine Pershey, at 815.722.6653 ext. 215.
