Finding Peace Amid the Chaos

 

"My peace I give to you," Jesus says, "not as the world gives it to you." The peace Jesus promises is not contingent on the circumstances of our lives. It transcends the insecurity of our troubled times while keeping us fully engaged in our chaotic world.

 

Join us for a day of prayer and reflection on this peace that surpasses understanding.

No, you are not joining an elite club and no, there really aren’t member perks. However, you are choosing your spiritual home. You are choosing to pray with us, serve with us, and provide your generous gifts with us. You are choosingthis sacred place as your spiritual home. We entrust the Mission of Old St. Pat’s to its Members.

Our current generation of members joins with those of the past in striving to build an experience of Church that is genuinely welcoming, mission oriented, and Christ centered. We welcome men and women, people of all races and ethnicities, young and old, gay and straight. We welcome rich and poor, searchers and seekers, Catholics and people of other religious traditions. We are gifted by your presence.

ABOUT THE SARA CENTER

Sara Hill was someone who simply, but profoundly, affected the lives of many. One of her gifts was the ability to start conversations, listen and connect people. Her faith and wisdom exemplified the Old St. Patrick’s mission of outreach and hospitality.

 

The Sara Center was begun in her honor by family and friends. Our goal is simple. We help start meaningful conversations, as Sara did, so that connections are made and good things may happen.

The Beloved Retreat Experience November 2019

We'd like to invite you to a weekend of beginnings. Whether you’re old or young (at heart), single or married, religious or skeptic, hurt or healing, laid back or caffeinated, you’ll fit right into our Beloved Retreat.

Founded in 1999, the Beloved Retreat offers you a community within Old St. Pat’s and our Catholic Church. Our hope is that, together, we can rediscover what often eludes us, but what God wants us to know: that you are Beloved.

We offer a safe, open inclusive environment in a quiet, pastoral setting where you can explore your relationship with God and yourself.

Another Beginning

The Beloved Retreat doesn’t end with the weekend. After the retreat, you’ll find another beginning. Regular Sunday Legacy meetings extend the Beloved experience and deepen our roots as a community of believers.

In addition, you can join small prayer groups to spiritually grow and deepen your personal faith and companionship with others.

Beloved Retreat Dates:

November 22-24, 2019

The November Retreat will be held on the beautiful grounds of St. Mary's of the Lake in Mundelein, IL.

Volunteer Opportunities at Phoenix Hall

Phoenix Hall is a residence for high school students located in the North Lawndale neighborhood of Chicago's west side. The program is structured to resemble student housing on a college campus so the students will experience the comfort, convenience, fun and support of community life. 

 

Phoenix Hall is a collaboration between Old St. Patrick’s Church, The Night Ministry, North Lawndale College Prep High School, and the Empower to Succeed organization.  The mission is to alleviate housing insecurity (homelessness) among teenage students so they can complete high school and continue on to higher education, other career paths and ultimately productive futures. Your support during this critical stage of their development is greatly appreciated.
