It is sometimes necessary to close Religious Education events due to an emergency. Inclement weather is usually the major cause of program closings; however, other emergencies such as power failures, heating problems, or water problems could occur at any time necessitating the closing of such events.
The primary and official source reporting closings is found at the Emergency Closing Center website sponsored by the Chicago Tribune. Click the text in blue or the following graphic to be taken to the site.
Also, the St. Mary Star of the Sea Religious Education program will call each family via the School Messenger Program in the event of a closing, and the Home page of the St. Mary Star of the Sea Church website will display a scrolling message if a closing happens.
The following radio and TV stations will also carry emergency closing information:
