Welcome to our Transitional Website for St. Catherine of Siena – St. Lucy and St. Giles Communities!

A NEW WEBSITE IS ON THE WAY – Dear Parishioners of our unified communities of St. Catherine of Siena – St. Lucy and St. Giles… We are in the process of gathering input and creating a new website that will reflect the values, ministries, organizations and activities of our great new reality of our unified churches. Meanwhile, we are posting events and activities pertaining to our unified community on this legacy website of the St. Giles Church. The SCSL website will remain available in its legacy form, with updates made as is possible. We appreciate your understanding and collaboration during a new website creation process… Thank You!

GLEESON BUILDING ELEVATOR – The elevator in the Gleeson Building (access to McDonough Hall and the Gleeson conference Room) is out-of-service as of March 26, 2024. We are still receiving proposals for repair, and we anticipate that it will not be repaired for at least 4-6 weeks.

PRAYER FOR SPIRITUAL COMMUNION – My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love you above all things, and I desire to receive you into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace you as if you were already there and unite myself wholly to you. Never permit me to be separated from you. Amen.

We stay and pray together!

Our hearts and mind are united in prayer for the students and coaches that were hurt in the bus accident in Warsaw Indiana on Saturday, November 12. We pray for the recovery of those students in the hospital and those that have returned home. We remember the St. Ignatius parents and faculty that have been united in prayer and supporting one another during this difficult time. Go Wolfpack!


We are a vibrant, engaged Roman Catholic Parish community of the Archdiocese of Chicago first established in 1927 to serve the areas of North Oak Park and the Galewood section of Chicago, but are now enriched by parishioners beyond these geographic borders. Many families in the parish have roots going back several generations while new parishioners continue to join us, seeking fellowship, service opportunities, sacraments, and religious formation.

Each week we work together to create numerous ways to live our 3 W’s: Worship, Welcoming and Walking the Way, motivated by gratitude for God’s many blessings. Through such a lifestyle the parish community supports 50 plus ministries and organizations for adults, teens and youth, a School (Pre-3 through Grade 8), and Religious Education Program (Pre-3 through Grade 8).

While we hope this site will be helpful and informative, we look forward to seeing you soon to join with our community in service and worship!
