CREEDS is a parish wide bible study designed to meet the spiritual hunger of both beginners and veterans. We challenge participants to dig into scripture with weekly homework assignments, small group discussions, reflection and prayer followed by a large group lecture presentations that incorporate music, literature and cinema. Fr. Bob will add a reflection on the Sunday and Daily Gospels to expand your study.

Participants select morning or evening sessions.Our morning session also offers a children’s program, for children age birth through kindergarten, whose parents are enrolled in CREEDS. CREEDS Kids teaches scripture and church tradition through bible stories, prayer, song and crafts. The fee for adult registration is $60. CREEDS Kids are $30 per child.

Sessions begin on September 20 and continue until April 25.

Protecting God’s Children-PGC attendance is a requirement for daytime adult members who wish to volunteer with the CREEDS Kids program. Please call the Katherine Bachner at (630) 355-4545 to register for PGC.

CREEDS has run a steady enrollment of over 100 men, women and children since its inception. However, each year the people we serve are ever-changing. While most students are St. Raphael parishioners, fourteen area churches are represented among CREEDS participants. We welcome anyone interested in reflecting on God’s Word in a deep, systematic, committed way to join us!  At CREEDS all are truly welcome to come and to learn to walk more closely as Jesus’ disciples.
