Through worship, prayer and sharing the Gospel Message of Our Savior, Jesus Christ, we offer our parish family the opportunity to develop a personal relationship with God. Transformed by His Spirit, our parishioners go forth into the larger community to minister to all of God's people, share the message of Jesus with others, and be a living witness to our Faith.

Governor Pritzker has just announced a mandatory shelter-in-place order for the State of Illinois. What this means for our parishes is that effective 5 p.m. Saturday, March 21 through Tuesday, April 7:
- All churches and adoration chapels must be closed and locked until the order is lifted by the governor. Private prayer in any parish building must be discontinued until the order is lifted.
- There can be no live Stations of the Cross or any other gatherings anywhere on parish/school property, nor can any parish personnel be involved in organizing them on any other site.
- All weddings and baptisms must be postponed and can be re-scheduled only once the order is lifted. There are no exceptions to this, regardless of the size of the group. However, in case of an extreme emergency for baptism, please seek the permission of your bishop.
Funerals and wakes must be postponed until the order is lifted.

One of the many gifts that Jesus has given to His church is the gift of healing prayer. Our Lady of the Ridge has Prayer Ministers who have completed a formation program for this ministry. They are available to you as the need arises in your life. Our prayer ministers are available to pray with you after weekend liturgies one Sunday per month and by appointment. Due to the Covid-19 situation, our next scheduled Prayer Ministry dates are pending. To make a unique appointment, please call the Rectory (425-3800), leave your contact information, and a prayer minister will call to confirm your appointment.
Adoration Chapel - Due to the Covid-19 situation, the chapel is closed until further notice.
The Adoration Chapel is a quiet space for Eucharistic adoration. Meditate, read, pray, or simply sit with Jesus.
