Our Religious Education program builds up and supports informed, practicing, and faith-filled families. The program is held on select Sundays at the 8:30 a.m. or 10:30 a.m. Masses from September-May. Families attend Mass together. After Mass, children and parents participate in a 45 minute enriching and engaging interactive faith building session for the whole family.

Totus Tuus

During the month of July, Holy Ghost sponsors a youth bible camp called Totus Tuus. Trained college students from the Diocese of Joliet lead the students to daily Mass, interactive games, crafts, music, and faith sharing.

Please call the Religious Education Office 630-766-1045 to register your children.

Spirit Youth Ministry (Click here to find our Facebook page.)

“Spirit” is our 9th – 12th grade youth ministry program that meets on select Sundays 6-8 p.m. in Ryan Hall from September through May. A team of adult youth ministry leaders integrate the Sunday Gospels into interactive dialogue and invites teens to grow, pray, think, and share their faith.  Sessions are interactive, and include fun, social activities, retreats, and teen leadership opportunities.  “Spirit” teen ministry builds strong faith, close friendships, and challenges teens to put the Gospel into action locally and globally, thus building a strong foundation for the next generation of Catholic adults.

Youth Ministry Mission Statement

Holy Ghost Parish youth ministry exists to sow the Word of God in the hearts of teens in grades 9-12, so that through their spiritual formation, Catholic identity development, involvement in parish ministries, service to others, & Christian leadership training; they might answer Jesus call to be practicing, lifelong and active disciples.

Spirit participants live out their mission through group retreats, prayer experiences, fun events, gospel centered formation, and Christian leadership training.  The ministry is very interactive, dynamic, fun, and faith building.
