parish directories are on the way!

Lifetouch Parish Directories should be arriving in a few weeks. When they arrive, they will be available in the Main Church Narthex before and after all Masses for you to pick up. If you would like to purchase an additional directory, there will be some for sale.

Thank you for your patience with this directory process. We had very few volunteers working on the directory and it was a lot of work! Thank you to Patty Wells and Sherry Byrne for their hard work!

Knights of Columbus

Knights are called upon to build the Domestic Church. Few things are more effective at evangelizing the culture than choosing to live our faith in our homes, council, community, and parish. Knights are active in many parish ministries: food pantry, Parish picnic, ushers, lectors, choir, SRE, Scouting, and RCIA just to name a few. Men still have an opportunity in May to become a Knight to help us extend our reach. There is an exemplification (our initiation ceremony) on Saturday, May 18, (11:00AM for First Degree and 12:00 Noon or Second and Third Degrees) at St Paul the Apostle in Gurnee.

SRE Needs You!

SRE (the School of Religious Education) Needs YOU!

The SRE program is in need of several catechists (teachers) and student aids. NO QUALIFICATIONS NECESSARY. WE TEACH YOU ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW! SRE meets on most Sundays during the School year from 10:15-11:30. We would love to have you join our team! What better way to be the hands and feet of Christ than to teach the youth of our parish.

Please, please, please pray on this. If you would like more information or are interested in helping us for the 2019-2020 school year, please contact Fr. Merold or Polly at 847-244-4161 or

The plant sale is here!

Forget the snow and start dreaming of your beautiful yard! The St. Patrick’s Plant Sale is sponsored this year by Breezy Hill Nursery in Salem, Wisconsin. The school will receive 20% of all sales. The committee has worked hard at selecting a special mix of annuals, perennials, bee, butterfly and hummingbird friendly plants, organic vegetables and herbs as well as trees and shrubs for you to order from this amazing nursery.

Order forms will be distributed via backpack mail for school parents and in the Narthex of the Church after Masses after Easter. Annuals, vegetables and herbs will be delivered to the school on June 1 for pick up. There will also be hanging plants and decorative potted plants for purchase on that day. Make your yard amazing this year, while supporting our wonderful school!
