Look to him that you may be radiant with joy,
and your faces may not blush with shame.
When the poor one called out, the LORD heard,
and from all his distress he saved him.

Joy in Jesus

Joy in Jesus is a program designed to expose young children to the fundamental teachings of the Church.  Children are taught that each of us is a unique and special child of God, and are introduced to the symbols of the Church – tree, rock, light, seed and water – through engaging and hands-on demonstrations.  They also learn about the birth of Jesus, the joy of the Resurrection and the celebration of the Mass.  

The program is open to children ages 3 to 5 (up to 1st grade) and is held on Sundays, October through April, during the 10:45 Mass.

Meet Our Lectors and Ushers

Have you walked past an usher or listened to a lector without knowing who they are. This section may help you a bit. Take a look at the lectors and usher's profile.

VIRTUS programs are designed to help protect children from sexual abuse.  To achieve this goal, the Archdiocese of Chicago offers the program “Protecting God’s Children.”   The sessions provide information to raise awareness and to help prevent abuse using worksheets, discussions and videos that incorporate interviews with both victims and convicted perpetrators.

The Archdiocese of Chicago requires every employee and volunteer who interacts with children to complete the program.  To comply with this requirement, St. John Brebeuf is proud to offer “Protecting God’s Children” to its parishioners and all employees and volunteers of the Archdiocese.  Group sessions are facilitated by parishioners Pam Perez and Tim Spadoni and are generally held one weeknight per month, from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m., in the May Ministry Center.
