Please read this letter for an update about Renew My Church.

November 7, 2020

As you know, Renew My Church (RMC) is the strategic initiative of the Archdiocese of Chicago to revitalize parishes in Cook and Lake Counties. Every parish in the Archdiocese is part of a “grouping”: a cluster of parishes that plans how this renewal will look in its particular community. There are roughly 100 groupings throughout the Archdiocese and groupings have been activated since 2016...

For more details about the Renew My Church Mission, please visit the Archdiocese of Chicago website:
