Whether you are new to Chicago, new to our area, new to our church, new to anything being Catholic, we welcome you.


God gave each of us talents and gifts to meet the needs of our parish with generous hearts and hands. Find out how you can be a blessing to your church and your community.


As Catholics, we are fortunate to receive and celebrate the gifts of the sacraments.


Financial donations provide resources to our parish and ministries to use where they are most effective.


Welcome to Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church

We have always welcomed people from many corners of the world and from different ways of life. We believe this is what God asks us to do. This is what we mean with our mission statement which states that we Seek Unity. Celebrate Diversity. By Praying, Caring, Sharing. This is our bold statement and we enthusiastically embrace it.
