  • Seven Sisters Apostolate

    On Sunday, August 7th, 2022,  during our 8:00 morning Mass, we witnessed the commitment ceremony of our newly established Seven Sisters Apostolate.  Our parishioner, Laura C., one of the Seven Sisters, established the Apostolate in our Incarnation St. Terrence Parish, and she is designated as the coordinator and guide for the group. She is lovingly referred to as the Anchoress of the Seven Sisters Apostolate.

    This Apostolate was founded in 2010 in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis, but currently, there are groups throughout the United States and other countries.
    This new-to-our-parishes apostolate has, as its mission, primarily praying for the pastor and his intentions. "A call to strengthen the Church by ensuring that a Holy Hour is prayed each day of the week for the sole intention of a specific priest or bishop - a 'holy wasting' or lavishing of prayer for his deeper conformity to Christ."

    Due to very successful response from the ladies of Incarnation Parish Church and St. Terrence Worship Site, once the primary committed group was established for the Pastor, another subsequent group was formed to support the Associate Pastor, Fr. Pawel, prayerfully.
    The group’s intention is directed towards the office of the shepherd more than the individual. In other words, the group prays for the priest until he is reassigned, at which time his successor becomes the recipient of those prayers.

    Each member commits to a Holy Hour on a particular day of the week, thus covering an entire week. The commitment is to that day. The Seven Sisters may pray at any time on that day. The Holy Hour is typically prayed in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament in our Perpetual Adoration Chapel.

    From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank all members of the Seven Sisters Apostolate for their commitment and support as I shepherd the newly established parish with Fr. Pawel’s support. Through the generous and prayerful people like those committed women of our parish, my spirit is uplifted, and I feel encouraged as I continue to build a strong foundation for our newly created Parish.

                                           Fr. Arek

    "Support your priests with your love and prayers, that they may always be shepherds after Christ's heart" - Pope Francis.

    “In strengthening the priest, you strengthen the whole Church... Strengthen the priest, and you strengthen the whole foundation, you strengthen everything in the Church” - Fr. Gerald Fitzgerald, s.P., Founder Handmaids of the Precious Blood.

  • Would you like to serve the Lord and His people?

    We are looking for parishioners who would like to become Lectors, Commentators, Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, and Ushers.  Proper instruction and training in these roles will be provided along with a ministry schedule.  This is a wonderful opportunity to serve the Lord and His People. Please call the Parish Office if you are interested.

  • A Synod on Synodality

    It is not unusual for the Catholic Church to call a synod, a gathering of leaders. What is unique about the synod that Pope Francis called on October 9 & 10, 2021 is that this two-year synod is being called a “Synod on Synodality.” What does that mean? It means that Pope Francis is inviting the entire Church, the People of God, to reflect on its life and mission. We are each being called to reflect on and share what we experience as life-giving and disciple-forming in our parishes and communities.

    Then, by sharing these experiences with each other, and by reflecting together on what the Holy Spirit is saying to the Church today, the Pope and Church leadership will be able to explore which processes are helping Her to live communion, to achieve widespread participation, and to open Herself more to living the mission of Christ.

    So how do we join in the discussion?

    1. Share your own voice about what you experience as Church here at Incarnation Parish.
    Click here to participate. 

    2. Connect to the Archdiocese of Chicago’s SYNOD website information.

  • 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:

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

    - True Cross of our Lord Jesus
    - St. John of the Cross
