JosaFEST 2023

Kick off fall with our annual post-Labor Day “fun-raiser” festival! Our weekend party in the parking lot is a great way to welcome everyone back to a new school year, reconnect with old friends, and meet new ones. Can’t wait to see you at our fall parish fundraiser, starting with Fr. Carlos’s Installation Mass on Saturday at 4pm (yep, an hour earlier than usual), followed by your favorite Chicago street fest with live music, grilled favorites and cold beverages - yum!

September 16 & 17, 2023

Get your tickets, multi-level sponsorship opportunities, Kids’ Zone wristbands, JosaBucks and raffle tickets now. Bonus - purchase tickets and sponsorships by Monday, September 11 for your chance to win a Reserved Pew and Parking Spot at Christmas Eve Mass

We Need Your Help - Please Volunteer

Meet new people, catch up with old friends, (and SJS parents get a head start on your 20-hour volunteer commitment) and have a blast!
