Welcome to St. Patrick Church!



HEARTS OF HOPE Teen Group Mission

During the week of July 15 - 20, we will be taking part in our Annual Hearts of Hope Mission. We will be helping out some of the senior citizens, handicapped, and chronically ill residents of Pembroke Township with needed repairs, painting, yard work, and a variety of other projects!


If you could share a day, or even a morning or afternoon, we need you! Please call Ken and Michelle Barrie at (815) 427-8130 for more information. BUT WAIT … there are more ways you can help! We always need: lots of bottled water, soda pop, breakfast bars, muffins, cereal, fruit, as well as any and all kinds of snacks, such as cookies, snack cakes, chips, and pretzels. Monetary donations are always welcomed to help cover the cost of materials and incidentals. Think about how YOU can be part of our Mission. Call Ken & Michelle Barrie at 427-8130 or call the rectory (932-6716) during regular office hours to let us know how you will help us help others! THANK YOU!



Welcome EILEEN KREGOR – Our New Religious Education Program Director Beginning this month, Eileen Kregor will take over responsibility for our Religious Education Program. She has just retired from 30-plus years teaching special education (and directing school plays) at Herscher High School and is excited about this new opportunity. Most of you will recognize Eileen. She is a long-time parishioner and is just finishing up a three-year term on our Parish Council. Eileen has been a member of the choir since arriving at St. Patrick Church in 1985. She also serves as a Cantor and is one of our wedding coordinators. She and her husband, Jeff, are parents of three adult children – Katie, Sean, and Alex. Let us all ask God’s special blessings upon Eileen as she begins this new ministry! Please join in welcoming Eileen to her new role!

We also offer our THANK YOU and BEST WISHES to retiring Religious Education Coordinator, Marcia Brown-Medina. Marcia has served in this capacity for the past five years and now finds that being a wife and a mother of four children (one starting college, one in high school, one in grade school, and one just a toddler), along with her full-time job as Coordinator of Hispanic/Latino Services for Catholic Charities - Diocese of Joliet, is quite enough to keep her very busy! Thank you, Marcia, and may God continue to bless you and your family!
