Stewardship and Giving
A Special Opportunity with the Annual Catholic Appeal
The annual catholic appeal is on of our parish's fundraising tools. For 2014, our goal is to raise $23,281. Any amount over this is returned to the parish by the diocese.
When you donate to the Annual Catholic Appeal, please be sure to note that you are a member of St. Catherine and St. Lucy; this will link your donation to our parish.

To receive Sunday offering envelopes, please contact the Church Office (708-386-8077, firstname.lastname@example.org). Your Sunday offerings go toward our parish's operating expenses. Your recorded donations to the parish are tax-deductible. Therefore, we encourage the use of checks and offering envelopes.
Facilities Projects and Fundraising Events
The hard work of parish development, stewardship and fundraising is headed by our Parish Development and Services Commission. You can learn more about how parish donations are effectively used for ministry and support by clicking here.
Additionally, we have various fund-raising activities throughout the year. You can learn more about these fun ways to support our parish by clicking here.
We have several recently-completed and ongoing parish facilities projects.
- McGuire Hall had a new roof installed in 2011, kitchen renovated in 2014 and drive way to side entrance of churhce replaced in 2013, with significant help from the Archdiocese of Chicago.
- Lucienne House (the former convent now used for religious education and meetings) is undergoing repairs to the Chapel and entrance area, building upon last years' successful classroom rehabbing by dedicated parishioners.
- Thanks to the generous funding through the Maeve Bacom Detmer Accessibility Fund, we recently completed a handicapped-accessible ramp to the church building.
- The front doors of the church building were refinished, and additional doors have been replaced throughout the church campus.
- The water damage to the altar area of the church building was repaired and the walls restored.
The buildings on the campus include the Church building, Rectory/Parish Office, McGuire Hall, Lucienne House, and the School. We are continually assessing building and infrastructure needs.
