Church Reopening

We are open again for Mass and receiving our Lord in Holy Communion—many have already joined us, even though the obligation to go to Sunday Mass is still dispensed by the Cardinal. Jesus himself has been waiting to reengage us in a wonderful embrace and dialogue, just as he did with his apostles and followers after his death and resurrection: Welcome back, you of little faith, he says to us. Blessed are those who have not seen (or received) and yet believe.

Pastor’s Message

St. Joseph: An Obedient Father

Fathers, do you want your children to obey you and to obey their mother? Really? Then all you should give them an example of obedience. If you obey God, his laws and commandments… if you obey your wife, anticipating her needs and requests, such that she doesn’t even have to ask… then your children will do the same, obeying and anticipating the needs of both mom and dad.

Women’s Book Club

Each month a group of women from the parish gather to discuss a book about the Catholic faith. Selections range from conversion stories to the lives of the Saints, deeper theological texts, and modern subjects relevant to women’s lives. Meetings are currently virtual and take place on the first Thursday of the month at 7:00pm.

Join us for a Panel discussion with Dr. Daniel B. Martinez, Board-Certified physician with specialty in Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, and Anne Grosklaus, Director of House of the Good Shepherd/Madonna for Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Chicago, along with Luis and Martha Jaime, sharing their personal experiences on raising single families in the Catholic faith. Moderated by Dr. Jaime Vasquez, Head of School of the Willows Academy. 
 
The challenges of single parenthood affect all of us, whether we personally experience that situation or not. This workshop is meant to provide help for parents facing those challenges – as well as suggestions for the families and friends of those who love them!
