News and Events

Breakfast for Veterans - Fisher House

St. Barbara’s Missionary Spirit Team is looking for volunteers to prepare breakfast for veterans and their families on Saturday, February 16th at the Fisher House at Hines VA Hospital in Maywood. The Fisher House provides a place to stay for families of military and veterans being treated at the VA medical center, so they can be close to their loved ones during the stressful time of hospitalization for an unexpected illness, disease or injury. Their motto is “A home away from home for families of our Nation’s Heroes”. Would you like to help our nation's heroes by preparing breakfast at the Fisher House on Saturday, February 16th? We'll carpool from St. Barbara's leaving at 7:30 am. We are asking a $5 donation per volunteer (if you are able) to help with the cost of groceries. This service opportunity is open to everyone, but we ask that children 12 and under are accompanied by a an adult family member. Teens are welcome with a permission slip. There is only room for 8 volunteers, so please contact us to reserve your spot. For more detail go to

Blood Drive

St. Barbara’s is hosting a blood drive at 4015 Prairie, Brookfield in the Parish Center Gym on Sunday, March 17, 2019 from 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Are you able to help?

Donating blood is truly the most selfless thing someone can do for another. Whether you’re type A, B, AB or O, being the giving type is about making sure there is enough blood to support our community every single day. It’s about sharing your strength, hope and courage with those who need it most.

You have an opportunity to support life in our community at St. Barbara’s upcoming blood drive on St. Patrick’s Day. Email Noel Thornton at to set up an appointment time. If you can’t make it to the blood drive, please pray with us for the people our donors will be helping. Thank you for your support!



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 Thank you!


St. Barbara's Rosary Makers

rosaryThe 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. Call the rectory.
