Welcome to Our Mother of Good Counsel Parish,
If you are a visitor, I hope you will find our website to be a reflection of this wonderful parish and that through this site you will be drawn more deeply into life in Christ, through our parish community.
If you are a parishioner, I hope that you will find the information that you need in order to become more fully engaged in the life of our family of Faith.
Our Mother of Good Counsel Catholic parish is in the Diocese of Joliet and has been staffed by the Augustinian Friars since its beginnings in 1996. These same Augustinians staff Providence Catholic High School in nearby New Lenox.
As a Catholic community of faith, we seek to welcome all those searching for both support and challenge in living a life with meaning and direction. We especially welcome and support families wishing to imbue their children with positive values that will help them grow into well-balanced and happy individuals.
The Mass is the center of our parish life. Our Mother of Good Counsel is blessed with a variety of priests—Augustinian and diocesan—who are fine leaders of prayer and homilists. During the school year, the Children’s Liturgy of the Word during the first part of Mass helps the younger children grow in their understanding of faith at their own level.
If you would like to find out more about our parish community, please look closely around this website or call the parish office at 708-301-6246. We are here to help you.
Father Joe McCormick, OSA
