News & Updates

frmayOn Monday December 14th the Pastors and the writing team for our grouping (St. Mary, St. Pius X, St. Hugh, and Mater Christi) will meet with the Archdiocesan Renew My Church Team to present the Scenarios and our comments for the viability of each of the Scenarios.

After we present the Scenarios and our feedback, the Archdiocesan team begins their work to determine what they believe will be the best outcome for the long-term viability of a new parish to be formed. They will make their presentation to the Archdiocesan Presbyteral Council and Cardinal Cupich in early January.

Cardinal Cupich will make the final decision regarding the formation of the new parish. Our grouping will be informed during an on-line presentation from the Renew My Church Team of the Cardinal’s decision toward the end of January.

Then the real work begins. The new parish will officially begin at the start of the new fiscal year, July 1st, but much work will be done ahead of time to make the transition from the former parishes to the new parish as smooth as possible.

None of this is going to be easy; we will all be affected by this change in one way or another. We must remember and commit to supporting each other during the changes that will need to take place in order to build our new parish.  We must rely on the Holy Spirit to help guide us and keep our hearts and minds open to the new ways God is calling us to do things to help build and strengthen his kingdom here on earth.

Please pray that we do the work of the Spirit in our Presentation of the Scenarios to the Renew My Church Team and that the best decision possible is made for the good of the church in our little corner of the Archdiocese.

Fr. Tom
