Need Help?


The STORM Youth Group is having a fundraiser to raise money for our Youth Ministry Mission Trips this summer. Participants are available to do odd jobs for a donation to our trips. This could include raking leaves, landscaping work, mowing the lawn, painting or shoveling snow. It could be a one time work project or ongoing. If you can give us at least one week notice that would be appreciated, or if it is ongoing, try to set it up ahead of time. All donations are then made payable to the St. Scholastica STORM Youth Group.  Please contact Jennifer at youthministry@stscholasticaparish.org or 630-985-2351x138 to set up work projects.

Holy Thursday Pilgrimage


St. Scholastica will be participating in a Holy Thursday Pilgrimage to seven churches on Holy Thursday, March 29.  It will begin with the Mass of the Lord’s Supper at 7 pm.  We can sit together during Mass, or meet right after at 8 pm.  The bus will leave from St. Scholastica after the Mass.  We will visit seven parishes for about 5-10 minutes of quiet prayer at each.  It ends back at St. Scholastica around 11:00 pm for the last prayer.  There is no cost for this event, but you must have a permission slip to ride the bus.  You can bring a snack to share on the bus.  Permission slips are lavender. If you are interested, please call Jennifer at 630.885.6439.

GO MAD (Go Out & Make A Difference) for current 6th, 7th & 8th Graders


GO MAD, our short term local Mission Trip Experience for Middle School students, is coming on July 9-10 to St. Scholastica.  During GO MAD we will do some projects around the church and we will go out into the community for others, including Feed My Starving Children and a nursing home.  We will eat and sleep in the Parish Center.  We will also have fun morning and evening programs provided for you by the High School Mission Team.  Permission Forms are due April 7 and they are a tri-fold brochure and can be turned in to the Parish Office or your RE or St. Scholastica School Class. 

We are still looking for adults and young adults to help with the planning and organization of this event.  Please contact Jennifer for more information or if you can help!
