Quote of the Day

Having destined us to be his adopted children, God gave is a likeness to Christ in his glory, and living as we do in communion with Christ we are rightly called the anointed ones.

Mission / Ecclesial basis:

The Department of Parish Life and Formation extends the Archbishops mission to foster and support the essential ministry of parishes in the Archdiocese of Chicago, i.e. to foster, to form and to sustain the Christian faithful as missionary disciples of Jesus Christ. The Department also assists in the formation and sustaining of the Christian faithful in a variety of extra-parochial gatherings, e.g. young adults, ethnic groupings, proclaiming the Social Teachings of the Church, etc. By providing resources and encouragement the Departments agencies, collaborating, assist parish leadership and others in the responsibility of strengthening the Christian faithful so that fellow believers might live as missionary disciples within the circumstances of their lives and in the world.
