Community Life

Our vital faith community also has a vibrant social community, with a range of activities where parishioners can gather to have fun and build community.

Alumni Association
Help to plan the annual Alumni reunion as well as other special events for alumni. Help is also needed  to keep our alumni database up to date.

Asian American Group
The SRB Asian American Group was established through the initiative of Archbishop Cupich to promote Asian Catholic Ministry in the Archdiocese. The group coordinates Filipino sponsored activities that foster fellowship and promote devotional practices. Last year, we celebrated our first Simbang Gabi, an evening mass followed by a reception serving well-loved Filipino dishes. In the spirit of Christian unity, we invite everyone to come and experience the joy of fellowship through the SRB Asian American Group. To get involved, please email any of the following:

Baking/Cooking Volunteers
There are always gatherings and bake sales that need your homemade treats. Be on a call list when we put a call out for cookies, brownies, breads, and more. Contact the rectory to put your name on the list.

Holy Name Society
This is the Men’s group of the parish. The Holy Name Society plans a great Christmas Party every year.

Hospitality Help
Be a welcoming face at various events from Coffee and Donut Sundays to sporting events to parish wide fund raisers.

Parents’ Association
The Parent’s Association is a great way to meet other families from the school. At monthly meetings, we plan social events and organize fundraisers. Volunteers help in many ways from serving on the Board, volunteering as a room rep, or helping with individual events.
