Newly Unified Parish Submission Form

Thank you for taking the time to complete and submit this form as we undertake the process of discerning a name for our newly unified parish. This is a challenging yet exciting process. Please take time to pray before officially offering a parish name. The Holy Spirit must play a part, and we want to be attentive to the stirring in our minds and hearts.

Once you have written down a potential name, we ask that you write a few paragraphs on why you think the name you submitted would be the right fit for the newly unified parish of Sts. Symphorosa & Rene Goupil.

The Renew My Church committee for the Archdiocese of Chicago has asked that we begin to steer clear of Marian names. There has been an overload of newly-formed parishes selecting a name that relates to the Blessed Mother. However, if the Spirit so moves you and you feel strongly about the name choice, then please go ahead and submit the Marian-themed name.

Our parish Unification Team will sift through the submissions and carefully/prayerfully choose 3-5 names which we will send to the archdiocese. In conjunction with the Presbyteral Council, the Archbishop of Chicago (Cardinal Cupich) will make the final decision.

Please fill out form at the link below, you may submit this form anonymously. Once completed just hit submit and your response will be sent to the parish office. 

May God bless you and your families.

Fr. Bob
