Request Communion for homebound
This ministry serves the sick of our parish—spiritually, sacramentally, and emotionally—by visiting and bringing Communion to the homebound, to residents of nursing homes and to the hospitalized. In addition, this ministry assists in helping families prepare for the funeral liturgy at the death of a loved one and supports those who are grieving.
Annually, a special All Souls Day Mass is celebrated in memory of all the deceased.
If you or a family member or friend in need of the assistance of the Pastoral Care Ministry, please contact the parish office at 708-799-5400.
IJP Prayer Chain
The IJP Prayer Chain is a group of men and women who offer prayers for anyone who wishes support in conveying their needs to the Lord. We pray for anyone who requests support and for many different needs, such as loss of a loved one or health problems. The prayer chain is contacted via e-mail with the intention and each member uses his/her own favorite prayer or offers a charitable deed for the intention of those for whom we pray.
Contact us about our prayer chain to receive an email about once a day with prayer requests that come from our community!
"A mosaic consists of thousands of little stones. Some are blue, some are green, some are yellow, some are gold. When we bring our faces close to the mosaic, we can admire the beauty of each stone. But as we step back from it, we can see that all these little stones reveal to us a beautiful picture, telling a story none of these stones can tell by itself. That is what our life in community is about. Each of us is like a little stone, but together we reveal the face of God to the world. Nobody can say: “I make God visible.” But others who see us together can say: “They make God visible.” Community is where humility and glory touch."
– Henri Nouwen
