"Go, Therefore, and make disciples of all nations, teaching them to obey all I have commanded you..."
Saint Benedict Church in Blue Island, Illinois is a Catholic parish of the Archdiocese of Chicago. It is home to the people of Blue Island and the surrounding suburbs on Chicago's south side.
Saint Benedict Parish is committed to carrying out the great commission that Jesus gave to his apostles. Therefore, we have chosen to apply our gifts and efforts to evangelize, both inside and outside of the walls of our parish. Through our prayer, worship, and common life together, we foster encounters with the living and risen Jesus, that our neighbors may have the opportunity learn about Jesus, to commit their lives to Him, and to become who God made them to be.
