A Note From The Pastor

Category: Parish News,

This Sunday we celebrate Father’s Day. It’s a day when we honor our Fathers and their influence and contributions in society. A blessing will be given for Fathers at all of the Masses this weekend.

This week, beginning Monday, June 18th, all priests of the Note from the PastorArchdiocese of Chicago will gather together for a Convocation. Cardinal Cupich has asked parishes to cancel Masses for this week; so we will not have Daily Mass this week, Monday – Friday here at OLH. However, please note that St. Patrick’s in Wadsworth will have Mass this week, Monday through Friday, at 7:30AM in the historic church.

At this week’s Convocation, the priests of the Archdiocese of Chicago will take time for prayer and reflection together. The entire Convocation is designed to help us prepare spiritually for the tasks and challenges that face all of us, as we go through the process of Renew My Church. Please pray for us; we will be praying for all of you.

I am absolutely delighted to announce the appointment of Miss Margaret Dolan as Principal of Our Lady of Humility School! Miss Dolan comes to us from St. Gilbert Catholic School in Grayslake.  In addition to teaching middle school mathematics and science, she also served as Assistant Principal. Miss Dolan also taught at St. Athanasius School in Evanston, Thomas Jefferson Middle School in Waukegan, and St. Priscilla Catholic School in Chicago.  She comes to us with excellent recommendations from St. Gilbert Pastor Fr. John Chrzan, St. Gilbert School Principal Mr. Brian Tekampe, and others. Miss Dolan has a passion for Catholic Education and the Faith.  Please refer to our OLH School Website for a welcome letter to learn more about  her.  Welcome Miss Margaret Dolan to OLH School!

I would like to thank our outstanding Principal Search Committee. They were so wise and knowledgeable, and worked so well together.  Special thanks to the Chair Kelly McComb, Teachers Katie Knudson and Seth Philip, and current and former OLH School Parents Eric Christianson and John Davis.

Finally, I must thank Dawn Klasinski who stepped in to be our Interim Principal since January. I cannot stress enough what a great job she did to ensure a smooth transition — thank you Dawn Klasinski!

Let us pray for one another and peace in the world. Happy Father’s Day to all Fathers!

God Bless,

Fr. Paul
