Pastoral Care | Ministry of Care


We value each of our parishioners as integral members of our faith community.  If you are ill or find it difficult to get to Mass, please know that you are not forgotten.

Our priests and ministers are always available and happy to visit you at your home or healthcare facility to bring you comfort, consolation, hope, and companionship.  Whether you would like to be brought Communion, receive the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick, or simply have a visitor for prayer and conversation, we are here and ready to bring Jesus to you.

 Talk to a Priest

Our priests welcome the opportunity to serve and minister to you.

 Anointing of the Sick

The Anointing of the Sick is intended to strengthen those who are elderly or seriously ill, to connect them to our community of believers, and to make God’s healing power known.  The Anointing of the Sick is always available from one of our priests.


Sacrament of Reconciliation

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is one of the most unique and beautiful aspects of Catholicism.  Jesus Christ, in His abundant love and mercy, established the Sacrament of Confession, so that we as sinners can obtain forgiveness for our sins and reconcile with God and the Church.  The sacrament “washes us clean,” and renews us in Christ.   Confessions are held every Saturday at the St Barbara Worship Site from 4:15 PM – 4:45 PM or by appointment at St Barbara or St Therese Worship Sites.


For any of these services, please call us at the office at (312) 842-7979.  If you are calling after business hours, please follow the system prompts to leave a message and your messages will be responded to..

Thank you!
