  • Christmas Giving Tree

    Dear Parishioners,

    Although many things have changed for this Christmas Season, one thing that hasn’t changed is our call to help those in need. 

    In that Spirit, our parish is continuing its tradition of a Christmas Giving Tree.

    Paper ornaments representing a number of local charities are available outdoors,
    at the west end of the Church building, near the Mary statue and Memorial walkway. You can pick them up this weekend at Mass or stop by during the week. 

    All gifts are to be returned to the parish by Sunday, December 6th. Teen volunteers will be outside before and after all the Masses, to receive your donations and transport them safely to a sorting location.

    There will also be plastic tubs outside the Gabriel Center where your gift can be deposited.

    If you prefer, You may drop gift cards or monetary gifts in the black Donation Box outside the parish office.  


    Thank you for supporting this wonderful parish tradition!

  • Our Parish...HD Drone Footage

  • New Flag

    On August 12th, we raised a new flag that was presented in honor of Bob McDonough, who served in the U.S. Army.  He worked for the Chicago Fire Department.  We remember and pray for all those worthy men and women who gave their best when they were called upon to serve and protect our country.  We pray that the Lord bless them, for their unselfish service to preserve our freedom, our safety, and our country’s heritage.  The flag was donated by Chester S., whom we thank for the honor of flying his flag.

    If you have a flag from a veteran’s funeral that you would like to have flown from our pole, we would be happy to accommodate you at the next available opportunity. Please call the Parish Office for details.

  • We Count on Your Continous Support



    Dear Parishioners and Friends of Incarnation. 

    Since COVID-19 hit, there have been a lot of changes to the way that Incarnation Parish operates.  

    - Since March, the Holy Mass has gone online to accommodate those who cannot attend or do not feel safe.  

    - In-person Masses have reduced the seating capacity and we strictly follow the safety procedures, from disinfecting the whole Church after every single Liturgy, wearing face coverings by all, to sanitizing our hands before Masses and receiving Holy Communion.  

    - The Sunday collections drastically declined at the beginning of the Pandemic, but have almost returned to our average projections.

    However, the second collections are still almost non-existent.  Collections such as those for our Building Maintenance Fund, Religious Education Scholarship Fund, Youth Ministry, etc. were all considered when we created our operating budget for this fiscal year.

    While our First Collection is extremely important, the Parish has also relied on the second collection to help reduce the normal operating functions of our buildings and ministries.  The St. Vincent de Paul Society that helps those in need of assistance, also relied on the generosity of our community through the second collections along with those collections that we participate in for the benefit of Archdiocesan groups.

    During this difficult time, I ask that you consider extending your stewardship to these causes along with the support you are providing for our Parish. This is CRUCIAL to continue our Mission/Ministry at Incarnation entrusted to us by the Lord.

    I welcome those who can drop off their weekly envelopes at the Rectory’s donation box (located outside of the Parish Office door) or the donation boxes by the entrance to the Church and Adoration Chapel.

    For those who cannot join us in Church, please consider mailing your weekly envelopes via US mail to the following address:

    Incarnation Catholic Church
    5757 W. 127th Street,
    Crestwood, IL 60418-2402


    I also encourage you to consider electronic giving. It’s easy to give:

    Go online at:

    www.faithdirect.net (our Parish Code IL912)

    or text $ amount to 708.505.8432.

    Together, we can make a difference and continue our Mission.  Thank you so much for your support and your prayers!

    Fr. Arek Falana - Pastor






    ​​​​​
    Holy Mary “Health of the Sick,”  You always kept Your faith firm as You stood near the Cross as Jesus suffered. You know what we need.  We are certain that You will provide, so that, as you did at Cana of Galilee, joy and feasting might return after this moment of our trial.

    We seek refuge under Your protection, and we trust, that You help us to conform ourselves to the will of God the Father.  Amen.

  • Saint's relics and the statue of St. Michael the Archangel

     





    We are happy to share with our parish community that the long-awaited statue of St. Michael the Archangel has been completed and is on display in our church. 
     
    May St. Michael the Archangel and all Saints intercede for our parish, for our Archdiocese, and the whole Church.  May their example inspire us to imitate Jesus in our own life.

    We also welcomed the first-class relic of St. Faustina Kowalska to our Parish! In the specially built reliquary in our Church, you can also find the following first-class relics:

    - True Cross of our Lord Jesus
    - St. John of the Cross
    - St. Simon Stock
    - St. Germaine
    - St. Maria Goretti
    - St. Brother Albert Chmielowski
    - St. Vincent de Paul
    - Bl. Francis Xavier Seelos
