St. Agatha - Our Sharing Parish
History of our relationship with St. Agatha ParishMany years ago, Father Dominic Grassi of St. Josaphat and Father Mike Ivers of St Agatha created a sharing parish relationship between St. Josaphat and St. Agatha. Since 2007, Father Larry Dowling has been pastor at St. Agatha, and this year the church celebrates its 125th year anniversary which recently included mass with the Cardinal Blase Cupich:“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,” Cupich told the Sun-Times.
Today and 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?
