Welcome to our Parish!

We, the Roman Catholic community of Sacred Heart Croatian parish, are a family of diverse people united through faith in Jesus Christ. We accept our baptismal call: to proclaim and witness the good news of the gospel; to live and work together as brothers and sisters; to celebrate God’s goodness in the sacraments and sacred scriptures; to serve all with justice, peace, and love in the name of the Lord. Embracing all, as a faith community, we promise to grow together to bring about the promise of God’s kingdom on earth.

LENTEN SCHEDULES AND NEWS

ashesLenten schedules:

Feb 26 - Ash Wednesday
    8:00 AM, 7:00 PM (English and Croatian)

Stations of the Cross in English on Wednesdays at 7 PM

Stations of the Cross in Croatian on Fridays at 7 PM

DISCIPLINES OF LENT: FASTING & ABSTINENCE: Catholics of age 14 and older are to abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday and all the Fridays of Lent. In addition, on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, Catholics from age ̧18 to 59 are to fast, limiting themselves to one full meal and two smaller meals each day.

ALMSGIVING: Moved by the sacrifice of Christ, many Christians combine almsgiving with fasting, giving to the poor the money they save by eating, drinking or buying less as they rely more upon God’s grace. There are lenten folders available at the entrance of the church for this purpose where you can put each of Lent, some money for the poor. We will collect the folders on Good Friday.

PRAYER: Catholics are encouraged to pray more during Lent, especially with Scripture or other Lenten devotions. We will have The Way of the Cross and Benediction at 7:00pm on Wednesdays in English and on Fridays in Croatian. We will have a Mass of healing and anointing of the sick. Lent is also a time to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation (confession) in preparation for the celebration of Christ’s Passion, Death and Resurrection.

TAX CREDIT & MATCHING GIFT PROGRAM

The State of Illinois created a tax credit scholarship program through the “Invest in Kids” Act that is mutually beneficial to students and donors. It provides a 75 percent Illinois State income tax credit to individuals who contribute money to fund scholarships for students to attend private schools. Eligible students from low-income families in Illinois may use these scholarships to attend a non-public school of their choice, including Sacred Heart School. For every dollar donated to this program through Empower Illinois between Dec. 1, 2019 and Feb. 29, 2020 and designated to a school operated by the Archdiocese of Chicago will be matched with two dollars from a matching pool....Click here for more information
