May 23, 2019

A mom of five Friars addressed fellow Mothers’ Club members at the 2019 Fenwick Senior Mass & Brunch celebration earlier this month.

Why did a Hinsdale couple send all five of their children to high school at Fenwick in Oak Park? As her youngest child graduates tomorrow, a mother explains faith’s role in their decision and what Fenwick means to her family.

The Lasek family values faith very deeply. “This is why Mark and I decided to send our kids to a Catholic high school,” explains Sue Lasek. “After researching all the private and public schools, Fenwick was our first choice, hands down, no questions.

“We felt that it was important for our kids to be reminded of their faith every day,” she continues. “We felt they would have an excellent education that would prepare them for college. Bottom line, as a mother: It was most important for my kids to be in a safe and faith-filled environment.”
