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.
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.
ALL REGISTRATIONS MUST BE ACCOMPANITED WITH A TUITUION PAYMENT.
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
Tuition for NON-SUPPORTING or UNREGISTERED families
One child $210.00
Two children $305.00
Three or more $340.00
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.
FAMILIES WHO RETURN THEIR REGISTRATION FORMS WITH FULL TUITION BY JULY 1st WILL RECEIVE A $20.00 DISCOUNT.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Our Religious Education & Formation Administrator Assistant, Sue MacKenzie will be happy to help you.
