FORMED > Pick of the Week | April 11, 2021
Dear Parishioners, It gives me great joy to share with you that our parish now has a subscription to FORMED, a premier online platform filled with over 4,000 Catholic studies, movies, audio dramas, talks, e-books, and even cartoons for our children.

Best of all, this material is free to you. Our parish will be using the material on FORMED to support our mi...

From Fr Mike Shanahan | Sunday, April 11, 2021
Thomas was one of the twelve Apostles and he did not hide the fact that he did not believe what they told him about the Resurrection of Jesus. He insisted that he would not believe unless he was able to place his fingers in the very wounds of Christ. And Thomas has gotten a bad reputation in the church for this doubt. We should ask a question however. Is it that bad to have doubts? In fact, isn’t there something good about having doubts? Our doubts cause us to go deeper and to ask questions. I would rather have doubts than simply being indiffere...

AWAKENING CONCERT | Endless Blessings...
Endless Blessings... are especially true of this AWAKENING concert. We continue to be AWAKENED by generosity, by abundance and by blessings. I want to share a wonderful blessing with you from this past week. I received a letter from a Family Fund (they want to remain anonymous) who gave this concert a gift of $30,000.  This blessing brings our total net revenue for this concert and the Soup Kitchen ministry to $84,728. God bless.   Be at peace.  Fr Mike   *https://www.chicagosfoodbank.org/covid-19-data-map/ ** https://www.chicagosf...

Second Sunday of Easter, Divine Mercy | April 11, 2021
Lectionary: 44 Reading I Acts 4:32-35 The community of believers was of one heart and mind, and no one claimed that any of his possessions was his own, but they had everything in common. With great power the apostles bore witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great favor was accorded them all. There was no needy person among them, for those who owned property or houses would sell them, bring the proceeds of the sale, and put them at the feet of the apostles, and they were distributed to each according to need. Responsorial Psalm 118:2-4, 13...

Welcome to Eucharistic Adoration
Our Lady of Lourdes welcomes you to spend 30 minutes before the Blessed Sacrament. Let us spend time with Jesus in silent prayer. The Catholic Church teaches that adoration extends our union with Christ after receiving communion. The worship of Jesus outside of Mass helps us maintain the grace we received in communion. Let us pray for ourselves, our families, our friends, our parish and the world. You are welcome to join us. ADORATION SCHEDULE: Monday & Friday: 8:30 am to 8:00 pm in Grotto. Tuesday: 8:30 am t...
