We are an active, vibrant church that is not program-focused, but rather people focused. We offer a wide range of ministries for each family member to get connected, stay connected, grow in the Word and grow closer to God. Below are a few of our ministries.

The Pasish Respect Lilfe Committee (PRLC) is a vital part of the Respect Life Ministry in the Archdiocese of Chicago. The Committee provides resources to the parish on life issues. The Committee also actively evangelizes fellow parishioners on the life issues. The Committee suports the pastor and priests in making life issues visible and viable at the parish level.

The Parish Respect Life Committee organizes and implements the efforts of the Bishop Pastoral Plan for ProLife Activities with the pastor at Our Lady of Lourdes. We specifically focus on the issues of abortion, infanticide and euthanasia. We support and promote the Church's teachings on life issues. The PRLC serves the parish and the Archdiocese of Chicago.

The PRLC meets monthly on the fourth Saturday of the month at 11 am at the parish rectory. In addition we have a Respect Life Mass on the same day followed by a Rosary and a Litany for life.

Our activities for the parish follow the USCCB Plan which is as follows:

  • Prayer
  • Education
  • Pastoral Care
  • Public Policy
