Confirmation program

Confirmation is a two year program where 5 parishes participate (Corpus Christi, Holy Angels, St. Anselm, St. Elizabeth and St. Killian) and share resources.  The cost is 10.00 per month which covers the cost of books, retreats, and other supplies.  Confirmation classes begin in September and conclude in June. Classes take place after mass and are usually 90 minutes. Classes rotate monthly to the different parishes.

First Communion

Preparation for First Communion begins in January and concludes with the Feast of Corpus Christi.   Registration for First Communion begins October 1.

Sunday school

Sunday school takes place during the Liturgy of the Word.  During this time, we discuss the readings for the day, liturgical seasons and special feast days.  Children are given assignments, crafts and other activities to help them appreciate the mass and our Catholic heritage.

For more information about any of the programs, please contact Tina L. Carter, Coordinator of Religious Education at 773-493-5959 or email at
