Education Committee

Education Commission Mission Statement

Bible Study and growing in the Catholic faith should be a "… lifelong process of seeking and coming to know God in the fullness of creation".

The Education Commission meets on the second Tuesday of the month. The current members of the group are Nancy Skwarczynski, Mary Ann Hejny, Jane Spray, Peg Furto and Mary Kimble. We would welcome new members and new ideas, and are also in need of a liaison member, from one of our religious education teachers.

There are several sub groups that fall under the umbrella of this commission, but that are not directly administered by the commission. Those groups are Religious Education, RCIA, Marriage Preparation/Marriage Enrichment, Baptism Preparation,  Totus Tuus, and the Youth Program.

We distribute the St. Mary Scholarship Applications for graduating high school seniors during February of each year. The scholarship committee then reviews the applications and make their recommendations to the parish. The funding for the scholarships comes from St. Mary’s Parish, the Knights of Columbus, and the CCW.

We try to help host any evenings that Fr. Tuan holds, relating to faith formation, such as Deck Theology, the explanation mass, etc.

You are invited to Bible Study beginning Wed. Sept 14 from 6- 7:15pm at Minooka Junior High and also Thurs. Sept 15 from 9:15-10:30am in St. Mary's Church basement.

Child care will be available during the Wednesday evening sessions.

If you have any questions, please contact Fred Ban at 815-467-2769 Or Cathy Fouts at 1-815-513-3995.
