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.

►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.
