Get in Touch With Volunteering!
St. Mary Religious Education Program is run by faithful individuals with a deep concern for children. Here are some of the areas where volunteer support is needed to assure that they learn their Catholic faith and develop a relationship with God. The time requirement can be small or large, but the rewards are always great. Please familiarize yourself with these areas of need and see if something matches your interest and your availability. We are happy to discuss the various roles with you and will support you every step of the way. Contact the Religious Education Office at (630) 960-3565 X219 or [email protected].

Catechist, Substitute Catechist, and Catechist Aide
Adults are needed at each of our sessions on Wednesdays (4:30-5:35, 6:30-7:35) and Thursdays (4:30-5:35). Teaming up with a partner is encouraged. Junior high and high school assistants are also needed to offer support to the catechist. This is an excellent opportunity for junior high students preparing to receive the sacrament of Confirmation.
Children’s Liturgy of the Word
Junior high school, high school, college students and adults are needed at the 8:00 and 10:00 masses on Sundays September through May. You can help out every week or every once in a while. Jr. High students are encouraged to participate in this ministry as a way to prepare for Confirmation.
