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.

Parent Endorsement of St. Patrick School
“As you know Katharina will be attending Marquette in the fall. She set her sights on their University Program. After the first exam was administered in class she went back to take the exam a second time to qualify. Not only was she accepted into the program but she knocked it out of the park and placed in the highest level of honors classes available across all subjects, including math where she will be taking Honors Algebra II. (Incidentally , I believe every student from St. Pat’s who is attending Marquette in the fall was accepted into the University Program.)
I tell anyone who will listen that the best decision I ever made for my girls was to transfer them to St. Pat’s four (4) years ago.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your continued tutelage, guidance and patience!
She could not have done it without you!
