Reverend Christopher Ciomek
Pastor & Dean of Deanery E, Vicariate 1
I was born in Poland. My parents have both passed on, my father in 1995 and my mother in July 2016. I am the youngest of six children. I came to the United States in 1988 and earned a Bachelor of Arts from Loyola University, Master of Divinity from University of St. Mary of the Lake, Master of Arts in Christian Spirituality from Creighton University, and Doctor of Ministry in Practical Biblical Theology from Barry University. I was ordained a priest in 1998 and served as a full-time associate pastor at St. Monica Parish in Chicago and then at St. Theresa Parish in Palatine. In 2004 I was assigned to Mundelein Seminary as full-time faculty and asked to be an Associate Dean of Formation and Director of Chicago Seminarians. As your pastor I will try my best to be present, be your servant leader, and work together with you for the good of our parish. May we be blessed as we strive to grow in our relationship with God.
