"To accomplish great things, we must not only act but also dream, not only plan, but also believe."
Welcome to St. Raphael the Archangel Catholic Church
We are a parish of faithful with a mission to love and honor God and to love and serve our brothers and sisters through the example set for us by Jesus in the Holy Scripture. We are a parish with a vision, some have called it an unrealistic dream, of a magnificent new church of classical/sacred architecture rising from the salvaged remains of two closed and deteriorating Chicago churches. We are a parish that believes no task is too difficult if we dare:
“ it is because we do not dare that [it is ] difficult."-Seneca
Through the generosity of our parishioners and many friends, both here and abroad, the new St. Raphael the Archangel Church is no longer just a vision, but a reality. The construction is progressing, but we need your help to complete the building project.
Through your belief and generosity we will accomplish a great thing.
