(Neighbors Involved in a Clean Environment) brings together over 300 volunteers who work to clean up parks, plant flowers, mulch trees, pick up trash, conserve natural resources and beautify our public spaces.

To Teach Who Christ Is

TTWCIWe had a very successful To Teach Who Christ Is campaign here at St. Barbara raising more than $332,995 in pledges. A pledge is made in good faith to God to support His Church. This campaign is very important for our parish as it will help us to improve accessibility to our church and parish center. We will create a more accessible, safe and professional environment in our parish office. We will also grow our building fund “First Fruits” for needed improvements in the future. To make it easier for families to keep up with their pledge payments, we will designate the 1st Sunday of each month as PLEDGE PAYMENT SUNDAY for the To Teach Who Christ Is campaign. Please bring your payment envelope to Mass, put your name on it, and place it in the 2nd collection. Of course, if you prefer to mail-in your payment you may continue to do so. Additional envelopes will be available in the church pews for your convenience. If you have questions about your pledge or wish to contribute please contact the TTWCI office at 312 532 8500 or you can go to http://www.toteachwhochristis.org. Thank you!


St. Barbara's Rosary Makers

The Rosary Makers at St. Barbara's was founded in January 2001. Since then we have made over 32,400 rosaries for the missions mostly in Central and South America. Irene, Therese, Estelle, Marge, Stacy, Carol, Rose, Elma, and Jenny have made 2,552 rosaries since January 2017. We meet one Tuesday morning a month to hand over the rosaries that were made the previous month, and then take more supplies for the next month. Finished corded rosaries are mailed to our contact lady in Florida, and the missionaries come to her for the finished rosaries. We are fully funded by CCW. New Rosary Makers are always welcome.
