As the governor has opened up Illinois, the archdiocese has allowed us to reopen gradually. After completing all the protocols required by the archdiocese, we have received certification for Phase 1 and 1A. In this phase, we are allowed to celebrate the sacraments (confession, weddings, baptisms and funerals) with only 10 people in the church. We are also permitted to keep the church open for private prayer with 10 people at a time. Each individual will be allowed to pray in church for 20 minutes and reservations are required. We will inform the parish of the exact dates when all this will begin. The archdiocese encourages us to open the church slowly so that we can learn from our experience and make improvements along the way. We thank you for being patient with us.

If someone is at the point of death and needs last rites, please call 847-321-5286 to contact a priest.

For other reasons, please call the parish office at 847-825-7605 and your call will be returned within 24 hours.

Mission Statement: As children of God, living in a Catholic community of faith, we are united by the Gospel message of Jesus Christ. Aware that all we have is gift and grace from our Heavenly Father, we strive to give of our time, talent and treasure to build His kingdom on earth. We live this mission, challenged by the Word, nurtured by the Sacraments, and enlivened by the Spirit, to serve our brothers and sisters in peace, justice and dignity. All are welcome on this journey.
