The parish business office is closed and Bingo canceled on Friday, February 9, due to the snowstorm. We'll still offer daily Mass in the chapel but please travel safely and carefully if you're joining us!
On Sunday, February 11 the second gathering of our new Teen Ministry will begin at the 5pm Mass. Afterwards we'll head over to the Ahearn Center for open gym, pizza and a dash of spirituality with Fr. James. Many thanks to Holt's in Park Ridge for the pizzas!
If you missed last Sunday's opportunity to help us meet our $53,000 goal, this weekend is another chance to make your pledge. The Appeal benefits parishes, faith formation, peace-making and relief services all over the world as well as here in Chicago.

Led by Fr. James, a committee of staff and music ministry members is now accepting applications from candidates to fill Margie Shiel's position when she retires in June. Interested applicants are invited to review the responsibilities and qualifications and respond by March 1.
We're very excited to announce that Chicago radio legend Kevin Matthews will join us on March 4 at 3:30pm in church for our next 3Cs in Christ gathering. Kevin will talk about his storied career, diagnosis with MS, and how a chance encounter with a discarded statue of the Blessed Virgin led to his new book, Broken Mary: A Journey of Hope. Kevin will serve as lector at our 5pm Mass and be available afterwards for a meet-and-greet and book-signing. All are welcome to join us so spread the word!
Mass and distribution of ashes takes place on February 14 in church at 7:00am, 8:30am and 7:00pm.
Don't forget to pick up your free copy of Kevin Matthews' book Broken Mary, our Lenten gift to all parishioners.
SJS Open House
Our early childhood programs (PS3 and PK4) are nearly full so if you're still considering enrollment options for next year, we invite you to visit on Monday, February 12 from 9–10:30am.

We're also scheduling shadow days for K-8 students interested in transferring to SJS; contact us to make arrangements.
Hard to believe but the grand craic is only two weeks away! Buying your tickets in advance helps us ensure we'll have enough corned beef, chicken, sides, dessert and beer/wine for every guest.

Don't miss it, on February 24 from 6–11pm in the Ahearn Center.
After a brief hiatus for the Christmas season, Fr. James starts up his weekly theology sessions with a topic that's always hot: The Crusades and The Inquisition. Join him in the chapel on February 13 at 7pm. All are welcome!
