St. Luke School
Faith Formation for Children
In addition to St. Luke School, we offer families the opportunity to participate in our Religious Education Program, which starts in the fall. Our program provides the opportunities to experience the rich sacramental life of the Church that can nourish and sustain our faith.
Register Children for Religious Education
Come learn with us! We offer both in-school and at-home programs:
- First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion are usually received in second grade when children have an understanding and readiness. Preparation requires two years of faith formation in first and second grade.
- Confirmation is usually received in eighth grade. The celebration of this sacrament focuses on a young person’s faith and commitment to Christ, and his/her desire to continue the practice of the faith as an adult in the parish community.
- In-school classes are on Wednesdays in St. Luke School. Grades 1–4 meet from 3:30 – 4:30 pm, and grades 5–8 meet from 6:30 – 8:00 pm.
- At-home study program allows parents to work with their child(ren) using the same resources as the in-school classes.
Special Religious Education Program – SPRED
SPRED enables young people with developmental disabilities to participate in a Faith Formation series that will guide their spiritual growth and prepare them for the sacraments of Holy Communion and Confirmation. We are planning to start the program again this fall. Contact our Religious Education Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or 708-435-8960 for more information.
