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.

Here at St. John Paul II we are one in passion and purpose... Jesus Christ!

St. John Paul II Parish is proud of its history of providing a place of worship, friendship, and community for parishioners to gather as a family to praise and serve Our Lord.

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
