What is the Parish Transformation Program ?

The Archdiocese of Chicago's Parish Transformation Program is a parishioner-led program that provides an opportunity for identifying the strengths that give a parish its distinctive character and definition, as well as areas that may be weak or ripe for development. The ultimate goal of the process is to articulate a unique mission and vision, and to provide a concrete strategy for revitalizing a parish for the future.

All Archdiocesan parishes will be participating in the program and to date, over 140 throughout Chicago and the surrounding suburbs have taken part.

The timing was perfect for the Parish Transformation Program to take place at Immaculate Conception and St. Joseph Parishes. Although we have many wonderful strengths, we also face many ongoing challenges which threaten to limit the growth and success of our ministries in the coming years.
