renewmychurch chiRenew My Church: What is it? Why are we doing it?
Our parish once again enters the Renew My Church Discernment Process. Like all parishes of the Archdiocese of Chicago, we will be participating in an effort of renewal. Some may ask, “why now?” since we are slowly finding our new pace, there is still a great deal of concern for people’s well-being. The most honest answer I can offer is that the opportunity for renewal is ever-present and is perhaps more important now than ever.

foodpantryneedsPlease place your donations in the Food Drive box in the church narthex. “Gift cards” can be placed in an envelope marked “Family Assistance” and dropped in the weekend collection basket or church mail drop box outside the main church doors or mail them to St. Pius X Family Assistance Ministry, 4300 S.

youcanmakeadifferenceAs we look forward to Spring and a reduction in Covid-19 restrictions, the St. Pius X Faith Formation Ministry has begun to plan for the 2021-2022 school year.

We are in need of Catechists and Aides to share their faith with our children.

Catechists are secretaries, executives, factory workers, stay-at-home moms and dads, real estate agents, construction workers, lawyers, nurses, accountants, firefighters, and police officers. In other words, they are everyday Catholics, dedicated to inviting young people into a deeper relationship with Jesus. They help young people to understand the Creed, celebrate the sacraments, live moral lives, and pray.

For more information, contact Patrick Koren by phone at 708-484-7951 ext. 5, by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., to learn about training for catechists.

prayershawlThe St. Pius X Prayer Shawl Ministry has prayer shawls available for your family members that need the comfort of prayers and blessings. Call the parish office (708) 484-7951 to request a prayer shawl.

About Prayer Shawls
In 1998, Janet Bristow and Victoria Galo, two graduates of the 1997 Women’s Leadership Institute at the Hartford Seminary in Hartford, Connecticut gave birth to a ministry as a result of their experience in this program of applied Feminist Spirituality under the direction of Professor Miriam Therese Winter, MMS. Compassion and the love of knitting/crocheting have been combined into a prayerful ministry and spiritual practice, which reaches out to those in need of comfort and solace as well as in celebration and joy. Many blessings are prayed into every shawl.

Whether they are called Prayer Shawls, Comfort Shawls, Peace Shawls, or Mantles, etc., the shawl maker begins with prayers and blessings for the recipient. The intentions are continued throughout the creation of the shawl. Upon completion a final blessing is offered before the shawl is given to the recipient.

Let us all pray the Hail Mary for the protection from the COVID-19 pandemic especially for those in Healthcare, First Responders, Food Service and other job essential workers. Pray for those affected by COVID-19 or facing quarantine and those who have died. Pray for our family and friends for our health and safety.

As of April 11, 2021
St. Mary’s has tallied 584,160 Hail Marys.

Together we can pray 1,000,000 Hail Marys.

2021appeal Despite the many challenges we have faced this last year in our nation, our world and our Church, we move forward as people of faith who have hope in the Lord who leads us. This year’s Annual Catholic Appeal theme renews and reinvigorates us. We hear Jesus say to us, “Come follow me … and bring hope to the world.”

Your support of the Appeal means bringing hope to the world. Hope comes alive in our parishes and schools, religious education programs, ministry formation and initiatives to address violence and foster justice, peace and respect for life. Hope reaches around the world through the Appeal’s support of Catholic Relief Services. Your support makes all this happen.
