Supporting St. Bede Catholic School’s Future: Fundraiser Launched to Ensure School Remains Open

INGLESIDE, Unwell. — No final decision has been made yet on the longer term of St. Bede School in Ingleside, in keeping with the Archdiocese of Chicago.

St. Bede School in Ingleside could possibly be forced to shut their doors attributable to financial shortfalls, but a GoFundMe page and dedicated volunteers are helping to fight to maintain the college open.

“We’re coming together and doing what we will and we’re just praying for a miracle,” St. Bede graduate Susan Lutzke said.

The St. Bede School administrators announced they need to boost $400,000 by Friday, Jan. 26. If not, the college could have to shut its doors for good.

The Chicago Archdiocese Office of Schools released the next statement:

“We appreciate the efforts of Saint Bede school, its parish community, and the generosity of all donors as we work together to make Catholic schools available to those that select them.”

The Ingleside Catholic school was founded in 1958.

The fundraiser has raised over $207,000, as of Tuesday, Jan. 2.
