On Holy Thursday, over 50 people gathered following the Mass of the Lord's Supper, boarded busses and set out on a pilgrimage to visit seven churches around Chicago. As we prayed and journeyed through each church, it became evident that the unique places of worship drew pilgrims in for a variety of reasons.

The Creation Care Ministry has been meeting regularly since the beginning of this summer. Along with you, we have begun the journey of living the message of Pope Francis in his encyclical, Laudato Si, here at OLPH.  Here are just a few of our efforts so far.  Last June, a special mass was offered commemorating the first anniversary of Laudato Si, and Father Nick gave a wonderful homily reminding us of the need to care for God’s creation.  We then initiated efforts to encourage recycling in...
