St. Agatha - Our Sharing Parish
History of Our Relationship with St. Agatha ParishMany years ago, Fr. Dominic Grassi of St. Josaphat and Fr. Mike Ivers of St. Agatha created a sharing parish relationship between St. Josaphat and St. Agatha. Since 2007, Fr. Larry Dowling has been pastor at St. Agatha. At the celebration Mass of St. Agatha's 125th year anniversary, Cardinal Blase Cupich told the Sun Times, “St. Agatha was the first church I visited after becoming archbishop because I heard so many good things about the place — the resiliency of the people but also their willingness not to dodge very important challenges facing their community today.”
How You Can Get Involved
Would you like to get involved? There are many opportunities - donate to St. Agatha families on our annual Christmas Giving Tree, attend mass at St. Agatha, volunteer for one of their many outreach programs, share school supplies, provide gift cards/incentives to support their family parenting programs, and more! Just visit their website or reach out to Father Larry or one of the leaders in their community.
- St. Agatha's budget covers the many outreach needs in its community, not just the operating budget for the parish. Would you like to add your support?
