With the current pandemic, will religious education classes meet face-to-face?
Yes, students and teachers will be gathering for in person instruction beginning September 20th. In consultation with medical experts, the Archdiocese of Chicago has set forth a comprehensive reopening plan that follows the guidance of federal and state authorities. All students and catechists will be required to wear masks.

Will masks be required?
Yes, all catechists and students are required to wear a mask at all times in the school building. Parents are asked that the mask used for religious education not be the same mask used at the child’s school, unless the mask has been sanitized prior to religious ed.

What happens if there is a COVID-19 surge in greater Chicago and the state imposes more restrictions on schools?
If a COVID-19 surge occurs, we will work closely with state officials to determine whether we can continue face-to-face instruction (even on an alternate schedule). If necessary, we will return to at-home virtual instruction.
