Welcome to St. Francis de Sales Catholic Parish! Organized as a parish in 1949 by the Archdiocese of Chicago, St. Francis de Sales encompasses the communities of Lake Zurich, Deer Park, Hawthorn Woods, North Barrington, Kildeer and Long Grove. If you are new to the area or are returning to the practice of our Catholic faith, we welcome you to our parish.
Please note that our website coordinator will be on maternity leave beginning in mid to late November and continuing well into 2015. To stay up to date with upcoming events and parish happenings, please check the parish bulletin that will be available at our weekend Masses.
The St. Francis de Sales Minister Center will be closed at end of day Tuesday, November 25th and will reopen on Monday, December 1st at 8:30 a.m. Let us take this time to be thankful to God this Thanksgiving Season, and remember to count our blessings!
Blessing of Marriage
If you are celebrating a wedding anniversary, no matter the number of years, and wish to receive a Blessing of Marriage from Father Ryan, please call him at (847) 726-4723. Every year of marriage deserves to be celebrated as a milestone in the Sacrament of Marriage. Father Ryan would be glad to offer a blessing on a Sunday, during a weekday or at a special occasion for you and your family. Hopefully with each passing year you are more in love with each other than the year before!
