WELCOME TO SAINT PATRICK CATHOLIC COMMUNITY
We are thankful that you are interested in learning more about the Catholic Community at Saint Patrick in Chesterton, Indiana. Through the celebration of the Eucharist and in the Sacraments, we worship together. Through our school, religious education program, adult formation, youth ministry programs, we offer a variety of ways for Catholics committed to Christ to give witness to Him.
We encourage each other to grow in holiness, and in our live and knowledge of our Catholic faith. Together, we seek to become more aware and appreciative of God's presence in our lives. We invite all who wish to learn more deeply about God's love and mercy for us through our Catholic faith. We inspire each other through our acts of service, outreach programs, and religious education opportunities.
May you find Saint Patrick Catholic Community a place of faith, devotion, holiness, peace, friendship and hospitality.

Parish Vision Statement
We members of the St. Patrick Catholic Community, inspired with the fire and zeal of the Holy Spirit, seek to live into our Catholic identity more fully through engaging and energizing ministry. Through a vibrant Sunday experience, St. Patrick will become a place of welcome and hospitality for all. We will foster and empower both youth and adults toward greater love and friendship with Christ, and both forming and being formed as disciples of Christ, will witness to God’s action in our thriving parish.
