CELEBRATION OF

OUR LADY OF CZESTOCHOWA

TUESDAY, AUGUST 26th, 7:00PM

 

We will celebrate a Marian Prayer Service with classic, traditional Polish hymns and prayers.  A professional family musical group, "Magical Keys," will perform in concert in honor of Mary, our Beloved Mother.  Plan to join us as we gather in honor of Our Lady.

A LETTER FROM OUR PASTOR:

Dear Parishioners and Friends,


Over 85 years ago, Father J. Leo Sharp established a Roman Catholic Parish to serve the religious and social needs of the people of the Clearing Neighborhood of the City of Chicago. The parish he established was designed to be a parish for EVERYONE in the area, not just for people of a specific ethnic group (which was the norm of the time). Thus, from its very beginning, St. Symphorosa Parish has been, and continues to be, a parish which prides itself on its welcoming spirit.


I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to celebrate the liturgy with us this (and every) weekend. Come and sing along with our outstanding adult choir which leads our assembly in song every Sunday at the 9:30 AM Mass. Come and be warmly received by our Ministers of Hospitality and our “Family Celebrating Faith.”


Even more, I invite you to become an active participant within this wonderful faith family. There are many ongoing ministries and organizations to join as well as seasonal events in which you may become involved.


In my five plus years at St. Symphorosa Parish, I have found faith-filled people and a very active community of faith. Come to visit or join the family. Be sure to stop and say a few words in the Gathering Space after Mass. I’ll be very happy to meet with you and, in the spirit of Father Sharp, welcome you to this parish family.


Sincerely in Christ,

Father Ted Bojczuk

Pastor
