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

The power of Christian prayer Listen, my friend!
Listen, my friend! Your helplessness is your best prayer. It calls from your heart to the heart of God with greater effect than all your uttered pleas. He hears it from the very moment that you are seized with helplessness, and He becomes actively engaged at once in hearing and answering the prayer of your helplessness.
