Fr. Lukas Ouda 

Associate Pastor

My name is Fr. Lukas Ouda, I was born in Kenya 41 years ago, I came to the USA ten years ago and joined Loyola University in 2010, a year later, I went to Mundelein Seminary for four years, got ordained in 2015, and assigned to Blessed Sacrament Parish Chicago as associate pastor for two years, and another two years as chaplain at the University of Chicago Medicine and associate pastor at St. Stanislaus Bishop and Marty Posen IL

I am the third born of a big family of ten, four sisters and five brothers, and I presume because of that, I am a people person who loves Christ and His church. 

I am looking forward to share that love of Christ with the parishioners of St. Barbara and St. Therese.     May God bless you all.   Amen.
