Our parish will be participating in The Baby Bottle Project benefiting The Women’s Centers of Greater Chicagoland. This non-profit organization directly assists mothers and families experiencing crisis pregnancies by offering emotional, financial, material, and spiritual support through counseling, clothing & monetary provisions, prayer, and other aid. By God’s Grace, The Women’s Centers have saved over 40,000 babies—and their mothers—from abortion since opening in 1984.

Please take a Baby Bottle home with you this weekend, fill it with your spare change, and return it the weekend of April 5th.

This is a simple, but crucial fundraising effort for The Women’s Centers. Thank you for helping defend life, and remember to keep all pro-life undertakings in your prayers.

If you are making a donation by check, please make it payable to: The Women’s Center. Thank you!
 
2020 Annual Catholic Appeal
Come, follow me… and heal our world
This weekend, our parish will continue conducting the Annual Catholic Appeal drop-off Commitment Weekend. Please remember that the Annual Catholic Appeal is much different than a one-time special collection. It is a pledge campaign where you can make a gift payable in installments.

The Annual Catholic Appeal theme, “Come, follow me… and heal our world,” was selected to remind us to continue to answer Jesus’ call to follow Him in thought, word and deed by providing the necessary contribution to fund ministries and services to share God’s love with many others in our parish and our archdiocese.

Each pledge makes a difference! All parishes communities participate in the campaign and the gifts of many enable our parishes, schools, and ministries to deliver needed services. Thank you for your prayerful consideration and generous response.

The 6th Grade is in need of a RE Teacher and a few volunteers to help out with teaching our youth about our Faith. (Virtus Training required)

Please Consider Becoming A lector and/or Eucharistic Minister
Our Parish is looking for volunteers to assist at Mass and throughout our Parish.

By devoting your time and talent as lectors and Eucharistic Ministers you could help make our liturgies be truly life–giving celebrations as it could and should be.

It's your decision at which Mass you'll be able to help and usually your help is only needed once each month. Be available to meet with homebound parishioners as needed.

If you're interested please contact the rectory and ask to see our
"Time and Talent" Brochure.
