April Faith Forum

For the past five weeks the adults at St. Mary’s have met to discern their Christian discipleship by discussions focused around the book Belonging.
Our children over the last four Sundays walked the journey with Jesus from his first miracle at the wedding in Cana to the road into Jerusalem and his Last Supper. We now enter Holy Week pondering all that we have absorbed, and held in our hearts.
We hope your family will join St. Mary’s in one of the church services, from the joyful entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, to the washing of feet and stripping of the altar on Maundy Thursday, followed by the stark and simple reading of the Passion on Good Friday, to the lighting of the Paschal candle at the Great Easter Vigil on Saturday. We will rejoice with a wonderful celebration on Easter!

Easter Memorial and Thank Offerings

In the midst of Lent, it is hopeful to look forward to the glory of Easter Sunday and our beautifully adorned chancel. If you had an Easter Memorial or Thank Offering in the past, you received a letter about your past memorial.  You can repeat your entry or edit it and return it in the envelope provided with your check. 
There are forms in the narthex as well as a form available here.  If you would like to request a new memorial. Checks should be made payable to St. Mary’s Church and need to be received by Sunday, April 2, 2023 in order to be in the Easter bulletins.  Please mark AG Memorial in the memo line.

CCA Academy Annual Benefit

Parishioners and friends of CCA are reminded that March 1-31 will mark CCA’s Annual Benefit.  Out of an abundance of caution, there will be no in-person event this year. 
2023 celebrates CCA’s 45th year of serving at-risk youth in the North Lawndale neighborhood with a curriculum that uses urban agriculture, ecology and sustainability to build academic, green-technology, and college-readiness skills. 

Sunday Night Suppers

Sunday Night Suppers is a free, community meal offered by Park Ridge churches and organizations on Sunday Nights to any family or individual who is need or wishes to share ameal with others, no questions asked.
Sunday Night Suppers is accomplished through the shared ministry of the Park Ridge Ministerial Association, and St. Mary’s partners with Park Ridge Presbyterian Church as co-hosts of this ministry.
Currently, Sunday Night Suppers takes place every Sunday, year-round, at Park Ridge Presbyterian Church, at 1300 West Crescent Avenue in Park Ridge.


With the donations from St. Mary's Exodus Welcome Pack Closet, we have been able to supply and deliver many Welcome Packs this year. We plan to maintain the closet as a resource to Exodus and the refugees they welcome to the Chicago area. This means it needs to be well stocked to build a pack at any time. Our collection is starting to run thin, so we've created a wish list of items in need.
