Parish Transformation

The Parish Transformation project began on September 9 and you can still join in this process of identifying the pearls and gems of St. Michael's and how those assets can best be utilized and fostered to create the most vibrant and healthy parish possible. As part of the process everyone (non-parishioners are welcome also!) is asked to participate in the Parish Transformation Survey. Just click the logo to the left and you will be linked to the survey.

If you have any questions, please contact Fr. Ted Lawson, C.Ss.R. at 312-642-2498 or email tlawson@st-mikes.org.
