Suggestions were given, preferences chosen, choices were discerned, and a decision was made by Cardinal Cupich.
Beginning July 1, 2021, the name of our newly unified parish is St. Paul VI. This name will encompass St. Mary Church, St. Mary School and Mater Christi Church and the people of St. Hugh Parish. Our churches and school retain their own names as part of Saint Paul VI Parish.
We are blessed to have as our patron a saint and the Pope who implemented the Second Vatican Council. Saint Paul VI was Pope from 1963-1978. He had great devotion to Mary and was a champion of evangelization. We can honor Saint Paul VI by taking to heart his words,”
Those who have received the Good News and who have been gathered by it into the community of salvation can and must communicate and spread it.” Saint Paul VI, pray for us!
