20180822_091451_resizedschoolsign

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.

Confirmation Retreat

Posted on Jun 08, 2020

We were excited to offer a Confirmation retreat led by Father Tom McCarthy, O.S.A. Our 7th and 8th grade students traveled to Saint Rita High School for this retreat. Thanks to Father McCarthy and to all our great students in our school and religious education program for their prayerful participation. May they long remember the teachings of this day.
