N.E.X.T. 
Newlyweds Experience for Tomorrow Post Marriage Ministry is active at St. Patrick Parish! Network with other recently married couples from the Lemont area. Our goal is to build our  NEXT community relationships for couples and their children. 

Are you divorced, or divorced and remarried civilly, and wish to have that previous marriage annulled?  It is possible that the circumstances of your former marriage may be such that an annulment can be more easily granted than you believe.  Do not believe the horror stories which other people may have told you.  Call Sue in the Parish Office if you wish to discuss the possibility of being granted an annulment in the Archdiocese of Chicago. 

Do not let remarriage keep you from receiving Holy Communion.  The will of our Lord Jesus Christ for you is to regularly receive His body and blood, providing strength to continue life's ever-changing journey.  The more difficult your journey, the greater your need to receive this gift!  Make an appointment with Fr. Kurt if you wish to discuss your own situation in relation to the sacraments.
