Reconciliation/Confession

The sacrament of Reconciliation, also known as Penance or Confession, brings us God's forgiveness. We confess our sins to the priest who, in the name of Christ, absolves our sins.

Reconciliation is available on Saturday 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. or by appointment (847-623-5050).

Anointing of the Sick

Anointing of the Sick brings forgiveness, strength and healing to a person suffering from any illness. As the priest anoints us with oil, we are reminded that we are united to Jesus in his suffering.

Contact the Rectory (847-623-5050) for Anointing.

 

Matrimony

In Matrimony, a man and woman are united in marriage by their freely given consent and promise to be faithful to each other for life.

Contact the Rectory (847-623-5050) at least six months in advance.  Wedding rehearsals will be scheduled on Thursdays.

Holy Orders

Holy Orders is the sacrament in which men are ordained as deacons, priests, or bishop. The Bishop lays his hands upon the heads of these men and anoints them with oil to carry on the work of proclaiming the Gospel and making the sacraments available to the faithful.
