Dear Parishioners,
loved you.”
Happy Father’s Day!
This week the parish celebrated the
life of Loretta Garvey who was a
towering influence in the her family
and in this parish. Over the years she
was a great influence at OLPH. It was
a beautiful celebration and an affirmation of the difference one person can
I extend special greetings to all of the
dads in our parish. You matter! You
make a great difference in our lives.
Please offer a prayer of gratitude for
the influence your father has had in
your life. These are challenging times
to be a dad. Fathers, your sacrifice
and commitment to your family leaves
a legacy that shapes your family
Father Jerry Boland
on Today's
In today’s Gospel
Jesus tells his disciples
that if they wish to
follow him they must
deny themselves and
take up his cross
daily. In Jesus’ time the
cross was not something nice or cool that
one could hang on the
wall or around one’s
neck. It was an instrument of torture and
execution. His point:
We are to lay down our
lives and let him take
control. Good stewards
hand over their lives
to Jesus no matter the
cost. They realize that
all they take with them
into the next life is their
relationship with Christ
Jesus. What are we
pursuing? A life that
tries to bring fulfillment
to ourselves or a life
that brings us closer to

As the school year has concluded,
Archbishop Cupich is inviting all of
our parishes and schools to pray all
summer for a peaceful summer. This
is an invitation for all of us to make
the most of the summer holiday and
to hold in our hearts some neighborhoods in the Chicagoland area that
have found the summer to be a time
of increased gun violence and gang
activity. Parishes will be hanging banners with the message, “Praying for a
Peaceful Summer.” All of our Sharing Parishes; St. Sabina, St. Philip
Neri, Our Lady of Tepeyac and St.
James are in neighborhoods at risk for
increased violence. We support them
in many ways. This is a time when we
can support them through the solidarity of prayer.
All this week, our nation has been
grieving in the light of the mass
shooting in Orlando, Florida. As the
magnitude of this tragedy continues
to unfold, we pray for the victims,
their families and those who bear
deep physical and emotional wounds.
This act of violence horrifies us all.
The insanity of gun violence plagues
our society. The nature of this attack
requires us to be vigilant against the
temptation to be drawn into bigotry or
prejudice toward people who are Muslim. This tragedy also calls us to stand
with gay, lesbian and transgender
people who have often been victims
of outrageous hatred and contempt.
Singling out people for victimization
because of their religion, sexual orientation or their nationality breaks the
heart of our ever loving God, who calls
us to, “Love one another as I have

Currently there are many construction
projects on campus. We are repairing the cupola over the rectory. The
chimney also was in need of urgent attention. We are exploring a plan to increase handicapped parking near the
elevator. We are replacing windows at
the school and playdium. We are renovating an apartment in the convent for
Sr. Joan and Sr. Paulanne. We also will
be doing significant masonry work at
the playdium. There are some HVAC
repairs taking place as well.
Jean Draths and I attended a wonderful workshop this week at the North
Shore Senior Center on the technology of hearing loops for public places.
This technology allows a hearing
impaired person to access the sound
system of the church directly and it
can dramatically improve the hearing
for those who often can’t hear anything in our church. We will continue
to explore whether or not the church
could take advantage of this technology.
Have a blessed week!

Mobile Pantry Outing Recap
A big THANK YOU to all of you who helped out on Saturday,
June 11 at the St. James Mobile Pantry.
As the food truck was being unloaded, we were thinking how
we were going to prepare and distribute all these food items and

A great job by all!

Sharing Updates and Opportunities
Sharing Ministry Meeting, June 21
The Ten Commandments of Sharing
The Sharing Ministry will hold its monthly meeting on
Tuesday, June 21 at 7:00 p.m. in the Dussman Room.
New members and new ideas always welcome. Join us!
To facilitate the Sharing process, please consider the
guidelines outlined below.
Non-perishable food items continue to be our
greatest need. Please donate items with their
original seal and within their expiration date. Avoid
glass containers.
Please consider the dignity of the needy when
evaluating what to donate. Ask yourself whether
you would be comfortable passing an item on to
someone you know.
When donating your gently worn, clean clothing,
please remove from hangers and deliver them to
the Sharing Room folded in boxes or bags, keeping
weight manageable for our volunteers. All types of
clothing are welcome with the exception of undergarments (men’s undershirts are welcome).
Shoes should be gently worn.
Small household items in clean, good condition are
welcome. Small appliances need to be complete
and in working order. We cannot accept TVs.
Contact the Parish Office for donation of larger furnishings. We will then call you to discuss the items.
Please do not deliver furniture or appliances to the
Sharing Room without authorization.
We can only accept NEW toys.
We do find homes for most books but are unable to
find outlets for encyclopedias and textbooks.
Please do not donate redecorating materials (used
paint, wallpaper, tile…) or construction materials.
S.O.S. For Food
Consider the needy alongside your own household
when grocery shopping. Pick up a few items for
someone you don’t even know and make the difference
in their day!
Too Busy To Shop For The Food Drive?
We’ll do the shopping for you! Mail a donation made
out to the OLPH Needy Family Fund to Lou Marohn,
2132 Fir Street, Glenview. Food will be purchased in
case lots to stretch and maximize your donation.
Feed The Homeless At Marquard, July 17
Help feed the homeless at Marquard Center on
Sunday, July 17. We welcome donations of fresh fruit,
cookies and candy, which can be delivered to the
convent porch that Saturday. Volunteers are needed
on Marquard service Sundays to prepare the meal at
OLPH after 9:30 AM Mass and to serve the meal at
Marquard Center, leaving at 3:30 and returning home at
7:30 PM. Contact Terri Guercio, 847-729-5916 or
[email protected] to volunteer.
10. The dumpsters outside the Sharing Room doors
fill routinely with items we do not feel comfortable
passing on. This creates an unnecessary expense
and reduces funds for the poor.
Thank you for your consideration of these guidelines!

Parent Volunteers and Catechists Needed
We need and encourage parent volunteers at all levels.
Each child has only 1 ½ hours per week so it is crucial
for us to have enough catechists to keep class size
limited. Please consider giving your time to pass on our
Catholic faith to the children. We will provide you with
all the support you need. You may be surprised at how
effective you will be with our well defined curriculum and
the shared ideas from our experienced teachers. Previous
teaching experience is not required, just a desire to help
our children grow in their faith.

The Power of Prayer
A little more than a year ago, our daughter and sonin-law received devastating news at their 20 week
ultrasound appointment - there was something
seriously wrong with their unborn child. Their baby
girl would be born with multiple heart defects and
would probably not survive her birth. They decided
to cherish every moment of the rest of that pregnancy and that’s when our family’s faith kicked into
high gear. We started asking for prayers and they
began pouring in. Bethie was born on August 26th
and sent home on hospice care but to everyone’s
surprise, she was still here when it was time for her
and big brother Freddie to move to Denver in October for their dad’s new job.
The prayers kept coming while they settled into
their new home with a new hospice team, which
could not believe how well this little girl was doing,
even with her labored breathing, blue lips, fingers
and toes. All the while our church kept praying
for our Mary Elizabeth as she awaited open heart
surgery. We thought we would lose her again in
April, two weeks before she was scheduled to have
her first open heart surgery. She was in pulmonary
distress and was airlifted to the children’s hospital
where the doctors were amazed once again that
she did not die. Every setback along the way was met with more
prayers and support from friends and family and
people we didn’t even know, for which we are so
grateful. Bethie just had her first open heart surgery
and the miracle that occurred is that she is able to
enjoy a walk in the park without the wind taking her
breath away, she has the energy to kick her little
pink feet and she can laugh - all things that she was
just too weak to do before. She will still need more
surgeries but we know God will take care of her and
her family whatever happens. Our daughter feels
that Bethie’s job while she is still here on earth is to
bring people closer to God through prayer and she
certainly has done that in her 9 months. What God
can do knows no bounds, and we will never stop
praying. Forever grateful,
Chris and Carl Prouty
