  • Passion Play




                                                  

    I want to thank our Incarnation Youth - TRAIN - for dedicating their time and creative energies to make the Passion Reenactment such a beautiful commemoration of our Lord’s sacrifice. Also, a big thanks go to our Youth Minister Michael J. and Mary S., who coordinated this event.

    They did very well and we all should be proud of them!

  • Check out our New Outdoor Stations of the Cross ...

    Have you checked our Marian Garden?

    The entrance is next to the School/Music Room and is open daily 7:00AM to 9:00PM. It is a beautiful, shaded garden that affords a quiet and restful atmosphere for prayer and meditation. There are benches to sit on or a path to walk, whichever suits your need. A shrine to Mary is at the west end of the garden for those who wish to invoke Her prayers for their concerns. Our parishioners maintain this peaceful place. Recently we trimmed all trees in the Marian Garden and majority of them throughout our entire campus. Through the generosity of our parishioner, we purchased and installed the outdoor Stations of the Cross that enhance the beauty of the garden. We encourage all to visit.

  • Welcome Albertine Sisters


    On August 24th, 1964, four Sisters of the Congregation of the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart arrived at Incarnation Parish.  They worked in our School and lived in the Convent located just across the main entrance of the Church.  After some time they left, and Felician Sisters took their place.  However, in June of 2000, the Felician Sisters left Incarnation too due to the decreasing numbers of religious sisters.  

    Therefore, we are happy to announce that after 17 years, we welcomed back religious sisters to live in the AFC that once more became the Convent, which was the original purpose of that building. 

    Incarnation Parish became home to four sisters: Sr. Nikola (Mother Superior), Sr. Beniamina (on the top picture), Sr. Marta and Sr. Katarzyna.

    They are from the Congregation of Albertine Sisters Serving the Poor (CSAPU) – a religious congregation ounded on January 15, 1891 in Kraków, Poland by St. Brother Albert (Ada m Chmielowski).  Their charism is to serve Christ in our neighbors, especially the poorest and most rejected, through the witness of Christian mercy shown to them

    Sisters, while leasing our Convent and self-supporting themselves, will work for Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese, managing and serving the soup kitchen at St. Blaise Parish in Summit.  With time, they will have more visible and active presence in our parish. 

  • Religious Education Program

    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 Mr. B. Fuesel and Mrs. C. Smarz, who have been catechists for over thirty years, to Nick, Carissa, Becca, Alex, Ana, and Jackson, 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 informtion or check out our REP web page by clicking HERE.

  • Votive Candles at Incarnation!



    In the recent years, parishioners have been asking for votive candles in our Church.  Thanks to some recent generous gifts from anonymous donors, we have been able to purchase two stands of votive candles.  They are in the Perpetual Adoration Chapel and in Church by the Holy Family.
     
    Each candle will burn for 2 hours.  There is a suggested donation of $2.00 per candle, which can be placed directly in the box attached to each candle stand.  
     
    In the lighting of candles, we remember and truly live the words of our Lord, “I am the Light of the World.”  After lighting a candle, you should offer a prayer.  Your prayer may thank God for a favor or blessing.  You may thank a particular Saint for intercession for your particular need, or you may bring a petition to our Lord, His Mother, or one of the Saints.  You might want to light a candle in memory of your loved one.  Your lighted candle will join with those left by others as a tangible sign of the combined prayers of our Incarnation Family.  Many small lights make for a greater cumulative brilliance.  When you see those flames, you can offer a prayer for all the needs that they represent in our community of faith.
     
    There was a challenge to install the votive candles in Church because there was no electrical outlet near the Holy Family that could be used to connect the candle stand.  In a very special way, I want to thank our parishioner – electrician -  James (Jim) Canner for finding the solution and for adding a new electric outlet in our Church.  He performed an excellent job, which was not an easy one and time consuming as well.
