SLOT Mana Program

Our MANNA program is still going. We have GIFT CARDS available for all the Masses each weekend, and if the card you need is out of stock, we will be happy to order it for you. Our next order date is Monday, November 20. This is a simple, easy way for you to do some Christmas shopping without fighting the crowds, and it is a painless way for our Parish to make money. The BEST part is that takes no extra work for you and NO EXTRA COST TO YOU! How does MANNA work? ~ We purchase gift cards for a discount, then you purchase gift cards from us at face value, and the Parish keeps the difference as profit! Easy and painless! Gift cards are available at the back of Church after the Masses on the weekend, and they are also available at the Parish Office. What Happens if the Gift Card I want is not in Stock? ~ If we don’t have the cards you need, we will be placing orders weekly for cards, so just fill out the a form that is in your bulletin this weekend (the forms are also available on the tables in Church, and at the Manna table at the back of Church), and return it to the Parish Office by Monday morning at 9:00 AM. We will place our order Monday, and we will have your gift cards by Friday. How do I pick up my order? ~ The Parish Office will contact you, letting you know that your order is available, and you may pick up your cards Monday—Friday from 7:30 AM until 4:00 PM, Monday—Friday or you may pick up your orders at the Manna table at the back of the Church before or after the Sunday Masses. Any other questions, please contact the Parish Office!

Annual Holi-Daze Bazaar

Our 9th Annual Holi-Daze Bazaar is FAST approaching—Sunday, November 26, from 9:00 AM until 2:00 PM. If you are a vendor or know someone who is, we are still looking for vendors for this Craft Fair. Please contact the Parish Office for more details. We are again asking for your help to make our Holi-Daze Bazaar a success this year! • First, we are asking for any donations you may be able to give towards the raffles we will have at the Bazaar. Gift cards are the best option for these donations—you may purchase MANNA cards, AND then your donation goes even farther—the Bazaar benefits as does the Parish. • We are also asking for your help with our Refreshments for the Bazaar—We are looking for donations of soups and bread to serve at the Bazaar. If you would like to help with this, please contact the Parish Office. 


Our PADS’ 2017-2018 Season is up and running. We are in need of volunteers for our 3rd and 4th shifts on the 3rd & 4th Fridays of the month. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Stephanie Kidd at 708-465-3884 or contact the Parish Office.

Savers Donation Drive

ATTENTION We are having ANOTHER SAVERS Donation Drive. Our date is in January 2018, so while you are getting ready for the holidays, remember to pack up those gently loved items you don’t need anymore, and bring them to Church! We have opened up the Collection Room and are already accepting donations. Please call the Parish Office before you come to make sure we are here! Any questions, please ask! 

It’s A Guy Thing

You are invited to join other Catholic men to learn how we apply our faith at work, with family & everyday life experiences, through prayer, faith sharing the Word of God, & Church teaching. We meet every 1st & 3rd Wednesdays @ 7:00 PM, in the Parish Office.

You are invited! Our St. Lawrence O’Toole Bible Study Group meets every Tuesday morning, after the 8:30 AM Mass. This is NOT an academic class. We reread scripture and seek to apply what we read to our lives today, and we have fun doing it. Please join us ANYTIME
