Welcome to the Office of Religious Education for the Diocese of Rockford. This site is a necessary extension of our office in the task of catechetical ministry to, with, by, and for youth. The hope is that coming to this site will minimize paper usage, postage and expedite information transfer between you and the Diocesan Office. All information sheets, forms, brochures and registration materials for specific events are available. There will also be regular updates and events posted on this site as well as email alerts.
“You can do nothing with children unless you win their confidence and love by bringing them into touch with yourself, by breaking through all the hindrances that keep them at a distance. We must accommodate ourselves to their tastes; we must make ourselves like them.”
– St. John Bosco, Patron of Youth and Youth Workers
