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.


Saint Pascal News and Events

Regionalization of Catholic Schools
It has been in the news recently that Archbishop Blase Cupich has suggested six schools on the Northwest Side collaborate starting in the 2016-17 school year. Though how the collaboration will play out is not clear, Saint Pascal, Saint Constance, Saint Cornelius, Our Lady of Victory, Saint Tarcissus, and Saint Thecla have been asked to work together to develop a regional plan for Catholic education on the city's Northwest Side.  Click here to read Father Paul's comments on how this initiative may affect Saint Pascal.

Small Christian Communities
On February 8, Saint Small Christian Communities will begin their Lenten Session which will focus on How to Respond to the Catholic Church's Teachings on Peace and Justice.   All parishioners are welcome to participate.Click here for more information on Small Christian Communities, and to sign up online or to print a sign-up form.

The next session will take place on Thursday, January 29 at 7:00 PM at Saint Robert Bellarmine Church.  These sessions are hosted jointly by Saint Robert Bellarmine, Our Lady of Victory and Saint Pascal parishes.  Presenters include local pastors, deacons and parishioners.

Let Our Song of Praise Rise Up to You!
Last Advent, we introduced a new hymnal at Saint Pascal, the latest edition of Gather, a locally published book that is used across the country.    If you would like to dedicate your hymnal with a printed inscription on the inside cover, click here for further details and an order form.   Hymnals can also be sponsored online.

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.
