05.01.21 ===== Congratulations FIrst Communicants

On behalf of the Transfiguration School of Religion director, Catechists, Frassati Principal, Teachers, Families, and Friends.

And united by the Most Blessed Sacrament, we would like to congratulate the 2020/2021 First Communicants! 

Rev. Fr. Juan Avila Ibarra and Fr. Alex Garcia, welcome many families on Saturday, May 1, 2021, where 52 children united with Jesus Christ through the Holy Eucharist, the precious body of Christ. May that they be filled and nourished by our Lord and Savior.  May the good lord guide them throughout their journey and pray that God’s grace shine upon them today as they grow in the spirit of His embrace now and always.

The whole parish community is invited to keep them in your prayers as they journey along with Christ.

===== Tax Credit Scholarship – Limited Time Special Opportunity

Frassati Catholic Academy needs our support today. Currently, there are 49 students on a waiting list hoping to receive funding so that they will be financially able to attend Frassati Catholic Academy next year. From now until MAY 31, Frassati has a fantastic opportunity to have all donations made through the Invest in Kids Tax Credit Scholarship program matched dollar for dollar by a generous donor, doubling the impact of these donations.

Please consider helping to fund scholarships for Frassati students in need. Frassati Catholic Academy and the Archdiocese of Chicago Office of Catholic School’s Scholarship Department will be hosting an online informational meeting on Wednesday, April 28 at 7 pm via Zoom.
