What's Happening?

Day of Prayer for Unborn January 22

Pro-life Mass on Wednesday

St. Luke will celebrate both of our morning Masses on Wednesday, January 22, with prayers for the gift of human life. This day is the 47th anniversary of the Roe v Wade Supreme Court decision that legalized abortions on demand. The US bishops have designated January 22 as a national Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children to invite everyone to pray for an end to aborticide that now has ended nearly 60 million lives. St. Luke School students will join us at 8:30 Mass.


Confirmation Retreat
for 8th Graders

A special retreat is scheduled on Saturday, January 25, for 8th graders who are preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation. The group will be traveling by bus to Our Lady of the Angels Mission on Chicago's west side. Parents/guardians are asked to submit this permission form for their child.


Men's Group to Meet on January 25

The Men’s Discussion Group will have its next monthly meeting on Saturday, January 25, from 10:00 to 11:00 am in Waldron Hall. This is a chance to share what’s going on in your life, work, and faith with fellow parishioners and learn what’s going on in the wider community.
