Strategic Planning Questionnaire 2020

During this season, We would ask you to prayerfully discern what God is asking us to do as we move forward into the future. Click on the blue link below to access the questionnaires so that our parish can gather as much data as we can from our parishioners. Our parish leadership teams will process, collate and analyze all the input you provide and the final result of this effort will hopefully be presented to the parish, during the celebration of our patron’s 100th birthday on May 18, 2020.  CLICK THE LINK BELOW TO ACCESS THE QUESTIONNAIRE.

About Us



Welcome to Saint John Paul II in Kankakee, Illinois!  We endeavor, by the grace of God, to be a healthy, happy and holy church.  We foster health by serving every aspect of the human person - physical, emotional, intellectual, social and most importantly, spiritual.  From our food pantry, our free clinic and exercise programs, and our Family Bridges for healthy relationships, to our spiritual programs, devotions and liturgies, we grow together in a healthy environment as people of God.  We are a happy church because of our welcoming spirit.  We believe that the Lord calls all people to be part of his Kingdom, and so we joyfully embrace everyone who walks through our doors, and endeavor to see the Lord in each person.  We are holy because the Lord Jesus is the heart of church, surrounded by the community of His saints, anchored upon the holy work of the apostles, and inspired by the holy example of our patron, St. John Paul II.


St. John Paul II Parish: "Bringing Jesus to everyone and everyone to Jesus "

We deeply value relationships. We love, serve, and care for one another and those whom God has placed around us in hopes that the community will see Jesus in us, hear us speak of Him often, and be drawn to Him. By welcoming you to our church, we are welcoming you into our lives.

We pray that our church will be a place where you experience the lavish love of God, ask questions, and find your place in God’s story.

We hope you will join us at a weekend service or in a community group. We would love to meet you or talk with you soon
