ST. PATRICK PARISH
MISSION STATEMENT
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
EducationMinistry, and Forgiveness.  
We are guided by the Holy Spirit to reach outside our church walls to embrace and support each person; to help each and every "Child of God" develop and maintain a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. 
We are the people of God.
