      Directions to St. Jerome

We are happy to offer our catechism program again this year. In order to offer your child the best instruction and training, it is important to have the support and cooperation of the parents. Below are our policies so that this year will be a successful one for all: Students are expected to be on time for each session and to behave appropriately (students should be in class, seated and ready for instruction no later than 9:30 a.m.  All CCD students must attend Mass every Sunday. If your child does not attend Sunday Mass, he/she will be denied CCD instruction. 

CCD classes must be taken for two years in a row prior to a student receiving a sacrament. If a student is absent more than three times during the school year, a parent must come to meet with the teacher prior to the student being readmitted to class. Students are expected to complete all the assignments on time and to the best of their ability. Students will be graded according to class participation and quality of assignments and tests. First Communion students are obliged to take part in the Corpus Christi procession and the procession for the Feast of the Assumption, Velika Gospa on August 15th. Students must be dressed in their Communion suit/dress for these special processions.

2. CCD will start on Sunday, September 22, 2013

3. Classes begin promptly at 9:30 a.m. and finish at 10:45 a.m.

4. The fee is $65.00 for one child and $85.00 for two or more children from same family. There is also a $20.00 book per child fee.

5. At time of registration, parents must bring with them a copy of baptismal and First Holy Communion certificates. If sacraments were received at St. Jerome’s, none is needed.

6. If you have any questions, please feel free to call the priests at the rectory, or Mr. Gerard Fratto CCD director, at 312/842 4077.

We feel honored and privileged to teach our Catholic faith to the children. With a joint effort on the part of you the parents, and us the teachers, our children will learn of the Love and generosity of the Lord that will carry them all through this life to eternal life with Him Who is the ultimate source of Love.

 Thank you.
