  • Bp. Barron's Advent Reflections

    • Friends, in today’s Gospel Jesus offers to free us from the burden of our pride. What is it that makes our lives heavy and weighed down? Precisely the burden of our own egos, the weight of one’s own...

  • Corpus Christi Procession - the first one in history of our Parish

    For the First Time in history of Incarnation Parish, we had a Solemn Eucharistic Procession that followed our 11:00 AM Mass. The Blessed Sacrament, displayed in a monstrance, under the cover of a canopy, was carried in a procession around the parking lot. During procession, Eucharistic hymns were sung.

    In the course of the procession, there were four stations where our Pastor Fr. Arek, Associate Pastor Fr. Pawel, and Deacon James Langwell stopped with the faithful for the proclamation of the Holy Gospel, a prayer and a blessing. At the last station, a solemn blessing was given to the four corners of the world. We asked the Lord to bless our neighborhood, our homes, city, and the world.

  • TRAIN YOUTH GROUP - JOIN TODAY!


    Join our YOUTH GROUP!

    Fr. Arek visited Train Youth Group in Tennessee with our Youth Minister Michael J. and chaperones Eileen and Jeff C. as they completed their participation in the Mission helping with household work for the needy.

    On the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, they started the day with the celebration of Mass at St. Mary’s Parish in Gatlinburg, TN., asking the Lord to shape their hearts after His Sacred Heart and then we had delicious breakfast. It was wonderful to hear our teens sharing their experience as they worked and had great fun as well.

  • We welcome new Statue of St. Theresa of Calcutta

  • St. Gabriel the Archangel Center

    "Saint Gabriel the Archangel Center" -  This is the new name for the Religious Education building.  Because of Gabriel’s role in the Incarnation (announcing the birth of Jesus), his close relationship with the Blessed Mother, and his name “God is our Strength,” he seemed the perfect patron saint.  St. Gabriel is associated with Our Lord Jesus Christ; he is the patron saint of messengers and the media.  And also, St. Gabriel is the angel who intercedes in birth, conception, the Incarnation, and mercy.  We consecrated our new space to the Incarnation of Jesus in the name of St. Gabriel the Archangel.

  • Saint's relics and the statue of St. Michael the Archangel





    We are happy to share with our parish community that the long-awaited statue of St. Michael the Archangel has been completed and is on display in our church. 
     
    May St. Michael the Archangel and all Saints intercede for our parish, for our Archdiocese, and the whole Church.  May their example inspire us to imitate Jesus in our own life.

    We also welcomed the first-class relic of St. Faustina Kowalska to our Parish! In the specially built reliquary in our Church, you can also find the following first-class relics:

    - True Cross of our Lord Jesus
    - St. John of the Cross
    - St. Simon Stock
    - St. Germaine
    - St. Maria Goretti
    - St. Brother Albert Chmielowski
    - Bl. Francis Xavier Seelos
    - Bl. Sister Bernardyna Jablosnka

    May God continue to bless our Incarnation Family, and may the Saints intercede for us.

  • Thank You!



    Incarnation Parish was happy to join with other parishes in the southwest suburbs in the "Help Build Hope" Project.  Help Build Hope partners with local churches to engage in dedicating their time, hands, prayer, and resources to build a house for someone in need.

    With the aid of community sponsors, hundreds of local volunteers gathered on the grounds of St. George Parish on Saturday, June 8 to build the framework to create two homes, after which the frames were loaded up and transported to their permanent sites, where all the remaining construction and installation happens.

    Thank you so much to our entire Incarnation Parish Team for helping build the duplex walls. We especially thank Kathy McNicholas and Team Leaders Dawn L. and Mr. Dennis who attended meetings and organized all our volun- teers (on top of doing the cutting & heavy lift- ing); Grandma Cygan, Karin, & Samantha for all the lunches; nurses Ann P., Cindy A., Sue G., and Kim M. for their medical backup; and JohnS. who accompanied the “home build” to itsDuPage County lot.

    We thank Fr. Ed for his support and his willingness to swing a hammer.

    We also thank Jack & Pat’s Butcher Shop fortheir food donation.

  • Welcome back Holy Family!

    We welcome back these beautifully restored statues of the Holy Family, that were part of the original Incarnation Church over 25 years ago.

  • Come! Be a part of something meaningful! Join our Religious Education Program 708.388.4004

    Handing on our faith to the next generation of Catholics is one of the most important responsibilities we share as the Church.  

    Incarnation Parish Religious Education Program (REP) is dedicated to this mission!  

    Our goal is to build a community where young disciples and their families not only learn more about the life-saving message of Our Lord Jesus, they truly encounter the love and mercy of Christ through our wonderful catechists, aides, and board members!  

    REP meets from September through May, on Sunday mornings or Monday afternoons.  Over 260 kindergarten through eighth graders currently join in prayer, music, art, and study - bringing our Catholic faith alive!  Every grade lives the mission of Jesus by doing service, in our parish community and beyond. From our first graders who make cards for the nursing home, to our third graders who pray the rosary, to our seventh graders who serve as junior catechists, all our young disciples learn the importance of "washing feet."  We also worship together and learn about the Holy Mass: all our grades attend "class Masses" with their catechists throughout the year, to deepen their understanding of and relationship to the Eucharist.  

    From our dedicated catechists who have been teaching for over thirty years, to our high school helpers, everyone in REP is welcome to share their time and giftedness!  And our REP Board is amazing - hard working and strong in their faith.  Every summer they gather for an overnight retreat, spending time in prayer, reflection, and spiritual growth.  

    Please keep our religious education program, our children, their families, our catechists, aides and staff, in your prayers - that the Holy Spirit of God continue to bless us and inspire us. 

    Also please stop by the Religious Education office to register your child(ren) to our wonderful program, call at 708.388.4005 for more information or check out our REP web page by clicking HERE.
