MISSION
The Immaculate Conception Religious Education Office is a formational ministry serving the faith community of Immaculate Conception Parish.  It operates under the direction of Religious Education Staff with the support and advice of the Religious Education Advisory Board.  It promotes the Reign of God through life-long faith formation.  It seeks to proclaim the Word of God, foster Sacramental celebrations and worship, and further the work of justice and service.  It implements the guidelines of the National Catechetical Directory and the policies of the Diocese of Joliet.

 
CURRICULUM
The Blest Are We series used in our program is a spiral curriculum built on the four pillars of the catechism and is used in grades one through eight.  These four pillars of the Catholic faith are:
 
  The Profession of Faith – The Creed (What We Believe)
•  The Celebration of the Christian Mystery – Liturgy and Sacraments (How We Celebrate)
•  Life in Christ – Christian Morality (How We Live)
•  Christian Prayer – A Personal Relationship with God (How We Pray)


 
RELIGIOUS EDUCATION CLASSES
Classes are held on Wednesday evenings, 5:10-6:15 p.m. in the Immaculate Conception Grade School.  Classes are also offered on Sunday mornings, 10:10-11:15 a.m. in both the IC grade school and high school buildings.  Parents may choose either day for attendance.

 
CATECHISTS
Our Catechist/Catechist aides participate in the Religious Education Ministry and share their faith with  our young people.  As the faith of our young grows, they learn and grow as well in this truly rewarding ministry.  Our program could not be a success without them. We urge you to pray on consideration of joining this rewarding minsitry.
