  • Current Safety Guidelines

    The love of Christ compels us to care for others, particularly the weakest and most vulnerable members of society.

    In this spirit, and in light of the latest CDC guidance; the Archdioceses of Chicago has re-issued the mandatory mask policy for everyone over the age of two, regardless of their vaccine status.

    Face masks are now required indoors for all clergy, staff, volunteers, and parishioners inside Archdiocesan facilities throughout all of Cook County, including Masses, liturgies, and all other activities and events within our parishes. Thank you for your kind cooperation and undurstanding.

  • Info on Covid-19 in-home Vaccinations

  • SCAM ALERT



    WARNING! Please note: there is a scam going around where someone is posing as our Pastor or another priest asking for money or gifts cards due to some kind of "emergency". This is a scam. Please do not send any money to any phony number or person!

    Please be vigilant in this matter. Please be cautious about scammers! Don’t be scammed yourself! No one from Incarnation Parish will EVER ask for money or gifts cards via text or email or any other kind of message for any reason. Also, we do not use a PayPal Account.


    Please be assured that this scam has been reported to the proper authorities.

    Once more we’re seeing a new spin on gift card scams. It seems that many other parishes are affected by the same scam. This time, scammers are pretending to be our pastor. They’re asking for gift card contributions. Appeals are often made by email, but we’ve heard people are also getting texts messages.


    What Does an Email Scam Look Like?
    The bogus emails often include the pastor’s name and may include a legitimate-looking email address. But a closer look should raise some red flags! For example, the email address or a phone number isn’t the one normally used by the pastor or the parish, and the service provider is different, too. The message may begin with a simple “Hi,” but doesn’t include a recipients’ name. There also may be spelling errors, including the pastor’s name and overuse of phrases like: “God bless you.”

    How Does the Scam Work?
    The imposter asks you to buy a popular gift card — like iTunes, Google Play, or Amazon — and then asks for the gift card number and PIN on the back of the card. The imposter may ask you to use a PayPal account to send them money. Those numbers let the scammer immediately get the money you loaded onto the card or via PayPal. And once that’s done, the scammer and your money are gone, usually without a trace.
    Please report the scam immediately to PayPal or a gift card company.

    Tips on Recognizing a Scam
    Here are a few tips on how to protect yourself from these types of scams:

    * Never give out or confirm personal information over the phone, via email, or on a website until you’ve checked it out whoever is asking you for it.

    * Do not trust a name, phone number, or email address just because it seems to be okay. Con artists use official-sounding titles and may fake caller ID or email address to gain your trust.

    * If the email or phone call or text message seems fishy it probably is. Contact the church directly to verify their request.

    * Never click on any attachment from a suspicious sounding text message, email or emails from people you are not familiar with.

  • 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 2020, 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, wearing face masks 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, we 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.

    We 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


    We 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!



    ​​​​​
    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
    - Bl. Sister Bernardyna Jablosnka

    May God continue to bless our Incarnation Family, and may the Saints intercede for us.

  • The Journey - Alpha Program at Incarnation

    Answering the call for the New Evangelization, all leaders and members of all ministries from Formation/Education, Spiritual Life, Parish Life and Human Concerns Commissions participated in the spiritual and evangelical renewal program “Alpha” that was adopted to the needs of Incarnation Parish and given our own name of “Journey to the Heart of the Faith.”  This faith formation in our Parish is ongoing.  We continue by offering programs to all parishioners throughout the year.  Please watch the video below:
