All Saints Day Liturgy

The Resurrection school community celebrates an all-school Mass today, November 1, 2019, to honor our beloved deceased and to pray for and remember all who have gone before us.  Thank you to all who submitted names of their beloved dead. Take a few moments to read Sr. Donna's series of blog posts this week about the favorite Saints of some of our Resurrection students and staff members.  

Following the liturgy, scholarships will be awarded to Resurrection students for the 2019-20 school year. We are grateful for the generous support of our scholarship donors!

Resurrection College Prep is proud to continue as the largest all-girls Catholic school on the north side of Chicago, educating young women since 1922.
