St. Cyprian Parish River Grove, IL

St. Cyprian Alumni,

Remember the days when you attended St. Cyprian School and what it meant to you? Did you have a favorite teacher who made an impact on your life? If you answered yes to either of these questions, then please consider offering your financial support for our school.

Gone are the days when Catholic education was run by the Religious Orders, and tuition was at a minimal fee. Now, besides just the everyday operating cost of running a School and Parish, there are salaries and health benefits which need to be covered because of Lay people teaching and working in place of the Religious Orders. In addition, we have less and less young people choosing to join the Priesthood or a Religious order. Based on these facts the Chicago Archdiocese has started the Renew My Church campaign. This initiative has led to some very difficult decisions and that is why it's so important to receive all of the support we can to help St. Cyprian remain viable.

The Archdiocese has looked at statistics based on our Mass attendance, school enrollment and our revenue income. Based on those numbers, they do not see St. Cyprian as a viable, sustainable entity. The thing that is missing from the equation, however, is the fact St. Cyprian is different in so many aspects to some of the other Schools and Parishes in the archdiocese. St. Cyprian has always been small and has always been like an extended family. While some graduates have moved away, they always remember their days at St. Cyprian. Others have continued to send their children and grandchildren to the school that they love.

We are reaching out in hopes of gaining your support to save St. Cyprian School! Please help us in spreading the word. We are still open and will remain open as long as we can continue growing, but we need your help. No donation is too small, so please give what you can.

If you would prefer, you can also support St. Cyprian School through a financial contribution sent directly to the school addressed to the St. Cyprian Scholarship fund.

God bless you and God bless St. Cyprian School!



The Catholic Community of River Grove warmly welcomes you! As you look us over, we hope that you will find some answers to questions you may have. Please contact us if you need any clarifications. We extend a cordial invitation to you to come and worship with us!
