As the Archdiocese of Chicago works to consolidate parishes in the South Suburbs, it has given new names to two of its recently reorganized parishes.
The archdiocese provided parishioners with a list of saints and asked them to select their favorites in rank order. The lists were then submitted to the archdiocese for a final name selection.
Infant Jesus of Prague Church in Flossmoor is now St. Veronica Parish.
The new parish is a combination of IJP in Flossmoor, St. Lawrence O’Toole in Matteson and St. Irenaeus in Park Forest . . .
