We, the people of Saint Patrick Parish, are a Roman Catholic Community of the Archdiocese of Chicago. Joined in faith by the Sacraments,
we exercise that faith by weaving God's Word into our multidimensional parish fabric of EvangelizationPrayerWorshipFaithLove

Welcome to St. Patrick
A Roman Catholic Parish of the Archdiocese of Chicago 

We congratulate Fr. Gorski on the occasion of his retirement as Fr. Kurt begins his six month sabbatical on January 1st.  Fr. Gorski has accepted an assignment from Cardinal Cupich to be our administrator Pastor during the absence of Fr. Kurt. Enjoy your time off Fr. Kurt, 
and welcome to St. Patrick, Fr. Gorski!  

2018 Century Club Ornaments, The Windows of St. Patrick 
This year's theme includes the window of St. Patrick Church overlooking our Blessed Mother in the sanctuary: "Nourished by the Eucharist" 
on one side, and a restored portion of the altar depicting the Last Supper as it looked in 1917 on the other.  We hope you enjoy the look of this year's ornament. We ask for a $100 donation for the ornament (or whatever you can afford).  Though it feels like winter already, this is our creative fall fundraiser.

Family/Children's Mass
Our next Family/Children's Mass is on Sunday, January 6th at 10am. Children are invited to take part in the Entrance Procession, Homily, Eucharistic prayers with the priest, and Offering of Gifts.  This has become a popular casual Mass with a very child-friendly atmosphere.  All are welcome to come celebrate!

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. The next NEXT event will take place after the St. Patrick Children's/Family 10am Mass on Sunday, January 6th at Higher Grounds Coffee Shop in Downtown Lemont.

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.
