Welcome from Fr. Francis
Welcome to St. Josaphat Parish! Thank you for taking the time to learn more about our parish community. We pride ourselves on being a warm and inviting parish for both long time parishioners and those visiting us for the first time. We consider ourselves “a church to come home to.”
As a community of faith, our relationship with Jesus is at the heart of our mission. We want people to develop an authentic relationship with Jesus and not just know “about Jesus.” We help people develop a relationship with Jesus through our worship together at Mass, through our faith formation programs and through prayer. This year our parish has dedicated itself to a “Year of Prayer.” Each month we are presenting our parishioners with different opportunities to learn new prayer forms and experience new ways of deepening their relationship with Jesus Christ.
We hope you will join us for one of our Sunday liturgies. If you are new to the area, please introduce yourself to me after Mass. I would be happy to meet with you to welcome you to Lincoln Park and to the St. Josaphat community. If you would like to learn more about our parish or our school, please feel free to contact me and we can meet over coffee.
