Dr. Elena Chermak, Director of Religious Education


Hello! My name is Elena Chermak, and I have been at Saint John Fisher for many years, happily serving both the school and parish. I am excited to work with all the children, faculty, and staff as the Director of Religious Education for the school and parish. I am a resource person for religious education and plan the daily prayers, school masses, prayer services, and celebration of the sacraments. I am originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and, as the 2nd of 8 children, I come from a big family for whom faith is very important. I came to Chicago to earn a Master of Arts in Divinity at the University of Chicago, followed by a Doctor of Ministry degree at the University of Saint Mary of the Lake – (Mundelein Seminary). Working with your children in our wonderful faith-filled-family of Saint John Fisher brings great joy daily. I look forward to an exciting year with the students, principal, staff, priests, teachers and parents of our great community.

Christmas Gospel

Posted on Jun 09, 2020

Each year we invite the 2nd graders to present our Christmas gospel for the parish Christmas Eve mass. The entire student body has a chance to see this gospel because the 2nd graders also present it at Christmas pep assembly/prayer service on the last day before Christmas break.

Thank you second graders! You worked well as a team, and made our Christmas celebrations more joyful!Christmasgospel2019apdfChristmasgospelprep2019abc_Page_1
