The mission of the Old St. Mary’s Stewardship Committee is to identify the God-given gifts and talents of our parishioners and to encourage the sharing of these blessings with each other, with the Parish and with the greater community. This committee needs to expand in order to meet our mission.

We generally meet once per month at 7 PM in the Parish Center.

If this mission speaks to you, please consider joining our committee. You can contact Mary Alberts at or 630-740-0989 for more information or to answer any questions you may have.

We would love to work with you!


If you are are a Catholic who has been away, we invite you to be an active part of us again. LANDINGS is an eight-week program that offers “a safe place to land,” a place for listening and for being heard, a place for asking questions and for reconnecting with the faith as an adult.

Our next session at Old St. Mary’s Parish, 1500 South Michigan Avenue begins in May.

If you are interested, please contact Jacqueline at or phone 312-922-3444 for more information.  Preregistration is required.
