 Religious Education and Formation  2016/2017

Thank you for another successful  year of Religious Education Formation for our children.  We couldn’t have accomplished so much without your help.  We are now in the process of planning for next  year.  Please read the following carefully as it pertains to registration for the fall.

Classes will be held on Wednesdays from 6:15 p.m.– 7:30 p.m.

The first class for 7th and 8th grade will be on Wednesday, September 7th.  The first class for 1st through 6th grade will be Wednesday, September 14th.
Both programs start in the church with a REQUIRED parent meeting after the children are dismissed to go to class.

We are Now Accepting Registrations for the 2016/2017 year.

You may register at the rectory Monday – Friday 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

2016-2017 Registration Form and 2016-2017 Publicity Permission

 All new registrations must provide a baptismal certificate if your child was baptized at a Parish other than St. Jane’s.

The Archdiocese of Chicago requires that all children enrolled in the sacrament preparation program have no more than two (2) unexcused absences per year. This pertains specifically to 1st, 2nd, 7th and 8th grades. 1st and 2nd grade students are expected to meet this requirement in order to make their First Reconciliation and/or their First Holy Communion.  7th and 8th grade students are expected to meet this requirement in order to prepare for and/or make their Confirmation.  They will not receive credit for the year if their absences exceed that amount.

The book fee is included in the tuition.  Your child will receive a rosary as well. The child will keep both of them at the end of the year.  It is the child’s responsibility to bring them both weekly to class.  The parent(s) must pay for any lost books.

WHEN REGISTERING EACH FAMILY MUST PAY THE TOTAL AMOUNT DUE FOR ONE CHILD.   Those with two or more children and/or a tutoring fee have a second payment date of Wednesday, October 12th to pay their balance.    A late fee of $20.00 will be accessed on Thursday, November 10th at 3:00 p.m.  Any family who is suffering economic hardship must contact Father Cronin PRIOR to the registration due date Monday, August 25th at 3:00p.m. at 708-805-2829

St. Jane parishioners must be actively attending and financially supporting our parish in order to receive the parishioner tuition rate.  Otherwise, they will be changed to the non-parishioner status.


Tuition for REGISTERED PARISHIONERS who contribute to the parish through the SUNDAY OFFERING

One child $170.00

Two children $245.00

Three or more $280.00


One child $210.00

Tuition for tutoring is $100.00 per child.  Sessions are from 5:15 p.m. – 6:15 p.m. on Wednesday night and follow the same calendar as the regular classes.

A sacramental donation for First Reconciliation, First Holy Communion, and/or Confirmation will be collected after the first of the year.  An email will be sent with more information.


Any registrations received AFTER AUGUST 25, 2016 at 3:00 P.M. will be assessed a $20.00 late fee. You may register the first day of class after the required parent meeting BUT your child(ren) will NOT be able to be assigned to a class until the next week. The child will attend a special class for that evening and attendance will be taken.

If you know any families new to the neighborhood we would appreciate you sharing this information. Be sure to inform them that a paper copy of the child’s baptismal certificate is REQUIRED at the time or registration.

If you have any questions or need additional information, call the rectory during regular business hours, 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM Monday through Friday at 773-767-2411 or send an email to Our Religious Education & Formation Administrator Assistant, Sue MacKenzie will be happy to help you.

Confirmation Retreat 2016


Please pray for our Confirmation class as they recently completed their Confirmation retreat. Confirmation Mass will be Sunday, March 6, 2016

 at 3:00 p.m. Bishop Rassas will be our main presider. Also pray for the NET team of young people that facilitated the Confirmation retreat. They are energetic and faithful Catholic young adults that travel the country giving retreats to other young people. Perhaps one of our young people will join them one day!
