Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

Leader Bio:
Fr. Gregg Gorczyca returned to St. John the Evangelist as parish administrator, following the passing of Fr. Ted Schmitt in December of 2014 and was formally installed as our pastor on Sept. 19, 2015. Born and raised in Rzeszow/Strzyzow (south-east corner of Poland) Fr. Gregg entered Rzeszow Seminary in 1997. He came to the U.S. in 2001 to continue his seminary education at the Bishop Abramowicz Preparatory Seminary in Chicago. His first parish assignment as a seminarian happened to be at St. John the Evangelist Parish with Fr. Bob Tonelli and Fr. Fred Pesek.

After studying English at UIC, he went on to study theology at St. Mary of the Lake Seminary in Mundelein, and on May 21, 2005 was ordained to the priesthood for the Archdiocese of Chicago.
Having served as an associate pastor at St. Pascal’s Parish in Chicago, St. Theresa’s Parish in Palatine and St. William’s Parish in Chicago, Fr. Gregg is very excited to be our pastor and is grateful to Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother for this opportunity. It is a joy for him to see that St. John’s is an active, prayerful, and faithful parish and school community.   Edit

Special Needs

Reserved seating is provided for persons with disabilities in the front of the church. Our sanctuary was designed so that all parishioners may participate in liturgical ministries. A wheelchair ramp behind the altar and a movable ambo allow parishioners with disabilities to participate as Lectors and Eucharistic Ministers. Our church is equipped with an AED device (commonly known as a defibrillator) provided by the Knights of Columbus. Many of our Ushers have been trained to use the device and provide CPR. Our Nurses Ministry provides a nurse at each Mass to help parishioners who become ill.   Edit
