Welcome to the Saint Pascal Pari

Welcome to the Saint Pascal Parish Website

Our parish has served the Northwest side of Chicago since 1914.  Over the years, we
have watched the Portage Park Community grow into a vibrant diverse area, and our liturgies provide worship opportunities in both English and Polish. 

Saint Pascal School is one of the best and most affordable schools you will find in our area.  Our Religious Education Program is family-centered, encouraging study and conversation about the Catholic Faith at home and in monthly gatherings.

Benefits of Registration at Saint Pascal

Keeping up with a parish of 2000 families can be a challenge!  Saint Pascal also serves many more families who are not registered but who still come to us for pastoral care. It is beneficial for both the parish administration and the individual families to be registered.  Registration is a confirmation of our desire and commitment to give ourselves to God and to one another in our community of faith. Our weekly offering is a prayer expressed through our material gifts received through our labors.

There are many concerns and difficulties that may make some reluctant to make this commitment. Some of the benefits of being registered include: 

You will receive important mailings at Christmas, Easter and other times throughout the year, keeping you up to date on parish news.
Registration is proof of membership in the Church.
Preference of choice of dates for your Church celebrations.
Persons involved in lay ministry should be registered in the parish.
Parishes often request verification of a person’s status as a practicing Catholic, attendance at Mass, etc., when a person has been asked to be a Godparent or sponsor. Without registration, no such verification can be given.
Regular mailings of envelopes for Sunday offerings with name, address, and a number assigned to each registered parishioner printed on each envelope. Your offerings are confidentially recorded by our staff for proof of donations and tax purposes.  Without using envelopes, we cannot verify your donations.

If you would like register, please stop by our parish office and our staff will be happy to assist you.

Keep The Cans Coming

Despite the new blue recycling bins around the neighborhood, Saint Pascal appreciates your continued support of our recycling program.  We ask that you continue to drop off your water bottles and cans (either crushed or uncrushed) by the school doors in the Dakin Street breezeway - NOT in Church.

 
Saint Pascal's Our Faith, Our Future Campaign will be combined with the Annual Catholic Appeal in 2014...  Click here for additional details.
