Every Tuesday throughout the school year there is an opportunity to gather and learn more about the Catholic Faith. Content will be from the online platform Formed, and discussion will follow the presentation. This is a great way to connect with fellow parishioners and have thoughtful discussion and learning opportunities to grow in your faith. The year will kick off learning about the Holy Spirit.
Please consider supporting our Catholic School, St. Mary's, through the Empower Illinois tax-credit program. In 2017 Illinois enacted the Invest In Kids Scholarship Tax Credit Program. This program offers a 75 percent income tax credit to individuals and businesses that contribute to qualified Scholarship Granting Organizations (SGOs). The SGOs then provide scholarships for students whose families meet the income requirements to attend qualified, non-public schools in Illinois. You as the donor can specify St. Mary School as the recipient of your donation, and in turn you are potentially giving a student the opportunity to attend our school who might not otherwise be able to do so.
