As we work towards the reopening of our parish, it is critical that we have a team that will help us with Set-Up, Greeting and Cleaning. If you would like to volunteer, please CLICK HERE and complete the volunteer registration form. Thank you so much for helping us during this difficult time and we look forward to opening our church with your help.

Please note: All who volunteer must not be part of a "vulnerable population" which would include volunteers with any underlying medical conditions, or those currently receiving cancer treatment. These guidelines are established by the Archdiocese of Chicago and have been implemented for your safety and your protection.

  • • NOT COME INTO CHURCH if you are showing symptoms of Coronavirus
  • • Enter only through the main doors (except those with disability)
  • • Keep a social distance of 6 feet or more from other worshippers

Reopening Guidance from the Archdiocese of Chicago

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.
