The Union School for Interfaith Families is a Sunday school program for children and parents of Christian and Jewish interfaith families. Although the curriculum is Catholic and Jewish, we welcome families of any Christian denomination.
The Union School for Interfaith Families meets on the campus of St. Raymond de Penafort in Mount Prospect.
Students from kindergarten through 8th grade are taught by teacher-parents in age-appropriate classrooms, with fully developed Catholic and Jewish interfaith curriculum for each grade level.
Parents participate in an adult education program while their children are in class. Sessions feature knowledgeable speakers and facilitated discussions on a variety of Catholic/Christian, Jewish, interfaith or intermarriage topics.
Jewish and Catholic clergy support and advise our Group. Register now if you are looking for a Jewish and Christian interfaith educational program for your children from kindergarten through 8th grade. Contact us now for more information on our school or other interfaith resource in our community.
If you prefer a city location, The Chicago Interfaith Family School meets in downtown Chicago on the campus of Old St. Patrick’s Church, one block east of I-90/94. Our Union School was based on the model and curriculum originally created by the Chicago Interfaith Family School, founded in 1993.
