Parish Life

This area relates to all groups or organizations that foster social and communal development of their members.


The goal of this Ministry, open to all women of the parish, is to foster community through spiritual development, social activities, and service opportunities for its members, and to provide financial support for ongoing parish needs. For more information contact Marjie Polarecky: 847-724-1176.   The Womenʼs Club Board, consisting of officers and Guild representatives, meets monthly, September to May, to facilitate planning of several events a year to appeal to all its members. The membership is divided into Guilds, allowing us to meet in smaller groups of friends and neighbors after the Board meeting, in a member’s home, for prayer, reporting on parish/Board business, and followed by refreshments and conversation.
