News and Upcoming Events

Our Parish is named after Mary, the Mother of Jesus. For Christians she is the model of welcoming and hospitality. She said yes to God and gave to the world His only begotten Son. It is our hope that Our Lady of the Woods Parish will become a strong spiritual resource for you.

Whether you are a new parishioner, a life-long parishioner or an in-between parishioner, it is our hope that you find something that may interest you or something that may assist you in your life. The purpose of ministry is not only to encourage people to become involved in parish life, but for parishioners to be of service to one another. The modern day parish must respond to the many needs of its members through cooperative efforts.

If you cannot find what you are looking for, do not hesitate to contact the parish office for assistance at 708-361-4754 or parishoffice@ourladyofthewoods.org.
