Parish Mission Statement

We, the Christian family of St. Liborius Catholic Church,
are called through baptism to be Disciples of Christ.
We welcome all to our diverse community of faith.
Inspired by the Holy Spirit and brought together as a Eucharistic community,
we are building the Kingdom of God.

We thankfully and joyfully live the gospel message through the sacraments, community life, stewardship, administration, social justice, outreach, education, and faith formation.

We are the sign of Christ’s love in our community, our Joliet Diocese,
the universal Catholic Church, and throughout the world.

Parish Pastoral Council

The parish pastoral council, in collaboration with the parish staff safeguards and promotes the unity of the parish community.  The council works with the entire parish community to create a vision for the future, to identify a clear mission and to develop long and short term goals.  It is responsible to see that the mission of the parish is lived and that the elements of parish life are supported.

Visioning is the primary work of the council.  Visioning is to focus on the future: how can St. Liborius function, grow and develop so that it is a continued empowerment of lived faith, living out our mission to make and nurture disciples?  The council’s work is strategic.  Its focus is not on implementation, but rather on establishing focus and direction.  The council is challenged to remain in touch with the parish community and to understand the parish mission, in and through its dynamic parish elements.

The council is responsible to the whole parish making sure that the well-being of the entire parish is considered.  It does not direct or manage the commissions or ministries, but rather guides them toward the parish mission and goals, encouraging them to implement activities that will align their work with the parish direction.
