St. Anastasia Parish

Our Mission

This weekend of September 8–9 across the Archdiocese of Chicago,
we will reflect as a people of faith on immigration and the plight of immigrants 
and refugees arriving in our nation. Government officials and our
elected representatives have the responsibility to develop sound
and humane policies and regulations that reflect the values
of our great nation. Beyond policies for immigration,
however, there are immigrants and refugees, real
people like us who deserve our attention, concern,
and care. They are men, women, and children,
many of whom are desperately fleeing the
violence of their home countries. What does
this mean? And, practically speaking, what
can we do? These are the questions will
take up as we listen to the word of God
and pray for enlightenment.
