Grief and Bereavement Support: Second & Fourth Thursday of the month, Nov 2023 – Feb 2024, at 5pm

The Church has a role to support those who grieve.  For this reason, “those who are baptized into Christ and nourished at the same table of the Lord are responsible to one another.” Thus, grief support allows the bereaved to experience the “Church” comforting, consoling and supporting them. 

Led by Marie Arnold, a trained Grief and Bereavement Facilitator, this 8-week program will meet Thursdays at 5:00pm in the Parish Hall on November 9 & 23, December 14 & 28, January 11 & 25 and February 7 & 22.

Please call Marie at 847-404-9671 if you have questions. 


Spiritual Warfare Rosary:  Every Wednesday evening 6:00 pm

St. Padre Pio declared, “The Rosary is the weapon for these times.” Especially now the world is in great need of this weapon to combat hatred, anxiety, illness, and hardship. ... It is said that the Rosary is a chain that links heaven and earth, with one end in our hands and the other in the hands of Our Holy Mother.

Msgr. Joe invites you to join him the in the Church every Wednesday evening at 6:00pm as he prays for the intentions of our Blessed Mother.  

Prayers and Squares: Second Thursday of the month at 1:30pm in the Parish Hall

There is nothing more comforting than a blanket or shawl woven with love and prayers!

What better way to spend time than to sit around chit-chatting with your parish family creating beautiful blankets or prayer shawls for those who need our prayers and comfort.  If you don’t know how to knit or crochet, no worries.  We are here to share our talents with you.  We will teach anyone what they need to know to create the most beautiful and comfortable blankets.  

If anyone would like a prayer shawl or blanket for themselves of someone else, please contact Elaine at 815-678-9932.
