Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles.
 Isaiah 40:31

"Only within the breathing space of adoration of the Eucharist can the Eucharistic celebration indeed be alive." Pope Benedict XVI

On Sunday, April 12th is the Divine Mercy Sunday. All are invited to a holy hour of Eucharistic Adoration at 3pm in the Chapel.  In thanksgiving for all God’s blessings,  we will pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet, and receive Benediction. Adoration gives the Lord an opportunity to speak to us in new and profound ways.

Women of Grace gather to share and strengthen their faith in an inviting and spiritual atmosphere. Join us on Tuesday, April 7, at 7:00 pm in the Coffee Room in the Church. Entrance is through Hardy Hall.                              

St. John Paul II's last written words were those of the Regina Caeli message that he had prepared to deliver the next day, Sunday April 3, 2005: "Jesus, I trust in You, have mercy on us and on on the whole world. Amen."

The 10th Anniversary of John Paul II's death falls on April 2, Holy Thursday, the beginning of the Great Easter Triduum. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We are in the process of completing the planning to renovate our church sanctuary. The new design better utilizes the space and provides many benefits:
 

Placing the cross and the tabernacle in the sanctuary as our center of attention during the mass. 

Emphasizing the significance of the Holy Spirit in the Eucharist in the form of a Holy Spirit Dove Stained Glass. 

Having an extended stained glass soffit to remind us of the inspiration that comes from God. 

On the right side of the sanctuary there will be a new sacristy with a glass door On the left side of the sanctuary there will be a new reconciliation room with a glass door 

Providing more prominent space for two new shrines: St. Peter Damian and the Holy Family. 

Replacing the chairlift on the left side with a handicapped ramp. 

Designating more space for our choir, piano, organ, and other musicians. 

Greater family space for the sacrament of Baptism. 

Flexible space for church events like The Shroud of Turin and Mary Magdalene's relic. 

Additional seating.

The initial planning has been completed and renderings of the renovated space are on display in the vestibule.  Approval to proceed has been received from the Parish Finance Council, the Parish Pastoral Council, and the Archdiocese of Chicago.
