The Religious Education program of St. Eulalia strives to support and promote the mission statement of our parish, in proclaiming the gospel values of Jesus Christ by being examples of charity, justice, peace hope and equality.
The program has classes for 1st — 8th grades.
Classes are held on Sunday from 8:30 – 9:50 am at the Quinn Community Center, 1835 S. 8th Avenue, Door #1 off of Lexington Avenue, 2nd floor.
Mass attendance is strongly encouraged for attendance in the program. All children are taken directly to the church at 9:50 and are reunited with their parents to attend the celebration together.
Parental participation in meetings, class volunteer time, fundraisers and church activities is strongly encouraged. Periodic gatherings of Parents Helping Parents are held focusing on the topics the children are learning.
Registration is held beginning the first week of August up to the Sunday before classes start in September. Classes end in May.
Rite of Christian Initiation
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults
Adults seeking to be baptized are introduced to the Sacrament through the The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults –RCIA. This is the process by which adults who are moved by God’s call and invitation embrace life in the Catholic Christian Community. It is a journey beginning with evangelization, to acceptance, and then formation, as a person moves toward readiness to be baptized or comes into full communion in the Catholic Church.
We welcome all adults who are seeking to respond to God’s call in their lives. We are eager to walk with them in this journey. Please call the Parish Office at 708-343-6120 and ask for the Pastor or leave a message on ext. 201 for further information.
“Let the children come to me and do not hinder them.”
Children’s Liturgy of The Word
This year, we will again offer children of the parish the opportunity to participate in Children’s Liturgy of the Word. This will be held during the 10 AM mass from September 25th through the end of April. All children are most welcome. Children younger than 5 (or any children who may need assistance) are invited to bring their parents or an older sibling with them.
In our time together, we will hear God’s Word, reflect on what the Gospels mean to us, and pray for our needs and the needs of the Church.
Through participating in Children’s Liturgy of the Word, we hope your children will:
- Know God’s Abundant Love for them
- Hear God’s scriptures in words that they can understand
- Reflect on God’s word and its meaning for their lives.
