Late Registration for CCD & Confirmation going on now! $60 for the first child, $35 for each additional child. Forms can be found in the parish office, on the Religious Education bulletin board or online at stphilomenaonline.org. If there is a financial hardship, you may request a scholarship in writing to the parish office.
CCD Teachers Needed!
Specifically, we are in need of a teacher for Kindergarten. We can always use an aide in each classroom as well! You do NOT have to be a professional teacher. You need only have a strong Catholic faith that you want to pass on to our young people. Please contact Kari Higgins at 217-412-4568 if you are interested in volunteering.
