For 125 years St. Mary of Gostyn has been rich in FAITH, EDUCATION, SERVICE, COMMUNITY. Currently, Father James Schwab is the 26th pastor to lead our parish. Far from the humble beginning of 25 families, today 2,700 families make up St. Mary of Gostyn. Over 400 students are enrolled in Pre-School through 8th Grade at St. Mary School and over 500 children attend religious education classes. In addition, over 100 ministries provide service our parishioners, our Downers Grove Community, and neighbors in other towns, states and countries. With a tradition rich in faith, education, service and community, our parish continues towards a bright future enriching faith life, educating on Catholicism, serving those in need, and enjoying our close community.
