Dreaming Big about the Archdiocese of Chicago

OUR PARISH GROUPING

Parish groupings will afford the opportunity to begin to look at how parishes might work together, support one another, and share personnel, programs and ministries. Our grouping has been identified as: St. Tarcissus, St. Cornelius, and St. Monica parishes.

St. Monica Parish - www.stmonicachicago.com

In November 2016, a joint meeting for parish council leaders among the three parishes was convened here at St. Tarcissus. That meeting was simply an introduction to the idea of this grouping, as well as an opportunity for all the council leaders to get to know one another and look at some of the things we have in common with each other, and to also examine some of the challenges we face as parishes today.

A PRAYER FOR “RENEW MY CHURCH”

Lord Jesus, you speak to us today, as you spoke to holy men and women who have gone before us. In every age and in our own time, you call to us and say: Renew My Church.

Pour out the gift of your Holy Spirit upon us, and so enable us to hear you clearly, to listen to each other attentively, to imagine our future boldly, to discern your direction wisely, to persevere in your holy will courageously, to stay together in charity, to surrender our own plans readily, to embrace the greater good, to hand on your gifts to future generations.

May we remain in the holy company of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the apostles, and all the saints. May their example and presence inspire us with patient confidence in the work of your grace.

We ask this of you who live and reign with the Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen

Feel free to call with questions or concerns!
