Early Childhood

Welcome to our second year of Early Childhood School gatherings within the Family School! At these Sunday morning gatherings, interfaith families who are expecting or have children younger than school age can discover a welcoming community that supports interfaith education. Many parents have participated in interfaith Weddings and Baby Naming and Baptism ceremonies and are wondering what to do next. Our meetings are a place to socialize, meet other families, and experience what the Family School has to offer! We typically meet at 9:45 am (aside from the bolded dates below) in a classroom in the FXW School on Old St. Pat's campus at 120 S. Desplaines. Parking is free at any of the lots around Old St. Patrick's. If you know of any friends or family you'd like to invite please let us know!!


9/29 (9:30-10:30, all-school Rosh Hashanah service in Old St. Patrick's Church Hall - enter on Adams St., 10:30-11:30 gathering)

5/3 (9:45--we'll gather in the classroom for a few minutes and then head in to hear the always-inspiring 8th grade panel in the cafeteria)

Please note that The Family School is built on a Catholic and Jewish curriculum and our religious discussions often focus on these faiths. However, we welcome couples of all faith backgrounds and especially believe those of other Christian denominations will find the curriculum and our discussions relevant to their own journeys.

Hope to see you in the 2019-2020 school year.
