Our current, green Gather hymnals are out of date. Father Robert Dovick, purchased the hymnals over 20 years ago. They served us well over the years. Now, as our Music Ministry at Incarnation is getting a face-lift, and we want to improve our celebration of the Eucharist, I think it is essential that we also upgrade our hymnals.
We will purchase GIA’s next generation comprehensive hardbound hymnals that include the Sunday Readings. This third edition will provide a rich selection of psalms, insightful titles from some of the best contemporary artists, and time-honored doctrinal hymns. In addition, the new Mass translations are included and now accessible to the entire assembly. It is my hope to have the new hymnals by the end of the Advent Season.
The new hymnals are expensive. The cost for 470 hymnals would be close to $12,000.00. We are inviting parishioners, parish organizations, and friends of the Parish to help sponsor the purchase of the new hymnals. You can memorialize a hymnal “in honor of” or “in memory of” a loved one (with or without your name being mentioned). A bookplate will be pasted to the inside front cover of each donated hymnal. There is a $20 donation per hymnal and you can sponsor as many hymnals as you would like.
Please prayerfully consider a donation for the hymnals. We would greatly appreciate your assistance. Simply fill out the order form and return the envelope to the Parish Office or drop it in the collection basket. The order forms and envelopes are available on tables in the back of the Church, in the Vestibule, and in the Parish Office. We need to receive all orders by November 14th.
We accept any donations toward the new hymnals. Click here to make a donation via GiveCentral with your credit card and then please make sure to call the Parish Office with the information to be lettered on the bookplate of your Hymnal.
New Music Ministries Seek Members!
Music Ministry at Incarnation is getting a face-lift, and there is a place for nearly everyone:
- The Caritas Singers are the legacy of the Classic Choir. We will sing at the 4:00 Mass and focus on choral music that spans the centuries.
- The Laudate Singers and Instrumentalists are the legacy of the Contemporary Choir and will sing/play at the 11:00 Mass. All instruments are welcome, and we will focus on music that reaches all the contemporary Church.
- The Jubilate Singers are the legacy of the Children's Choirs and is open to all parish children in grades 3 through 8. We will sing twice a month at the 9:30 Mass.
- On the other Sundays at 9:30, the Adoramus Ringers will play. Adoramus is open to parishioners 5th grade and older and is the legacy of the Handbell Choirs.
We also are actively seeking new Cantors and Instrumentalists by audition. Come see our new Music Director Anne Madden after weekend Masses, email, or call her for more information.
We would love to have you!
Feel free to contact Anne with any questions at: email@example.com

Congratulations to our parishioner Ludwig Soder, a recipient of this year's Christifideles Archdiocesan Award! On the picture you see Lou with his wife Mary. Thank you for your ministry at Incarnation Parish.
The Christifideles Award is given to Catholic laypeople who have, by participating in parish life, demonstrated the personal and ministerial renewal called for by the papal exhortation Christifideles Laici, calling the laity to the “vocation of responsibility for the church’s life springing from the gift and mission of their baptism.”
Anne Madden has spent more than 20 years serving Catholic faith communities as pastoral musician and liturgist in the Archdiocese of Chicago and the Dioceses of Joliet, Peoria, Gary, and Fort Wayne-South Bend. She earned her undergraduate degree in church music with an organ concentration at Valparaiso University and studied graduate organ performance at the University of Notre Dame. She is currently pursuing further graduate studies in church music with a vocal concentration at Concordia University Chicago. Mrs. Madden has served as an officer in several chapters of the American Guild of Organists, and has been active in the National Association of Pastoral Musicians and Southwest Pastoral Musicians.
Anne grew up in Chicago on the northwest side but has called Lemont home since 2002. She met her husband Tim while music director at SS. Cyril and Methodius, and they are parents to three school-aged children. She most recently served as Director of Music and Liturgical Ministry at Saint Xavier University. She enjoys empowering people to use their talents to serve God and their community and feels blessed with the opportunity to become part of the Incarnation parish family.
Please keep her in your prayers as she begins this new phase of life and ministry and as she enriches the Music Ministry of our Parish with her God-given talents. Of course, the best way to welcome Anne is to SING! If you have a great voice or love to sing, please consider joining one of our choirs or becoming a cantor.

Handing on our faith to the next generation of Catholics is one of the most important responsibilities we share as the Church.
Incarnation Parish Religious Education Program (REP) is dedicated to this mission!
Our goal is to build a community where young disciples and their families not only learn more about the life-saving message of Our Lord Jesus, they truly encounter the love and mercy of Christ through our wonderful catechists, aides, and board members!
REP meets from September through May, on Sunday mornings or Monday afternoons. Over 260 kindergarten through eighth graders currently join in prayer, music, art, and study - bringing our Catholic faith alive! Every grade lives the mission of Jesus by doing service, in our parish community and beyond. From our first graders who make cards for the nursing home, to our third graders who pray the rosary, to our seventh graders who serve as junior catechists, all our young disciples learn the importance of "washing feet." We also worship together and learn about the Holy Mass: all our grades attend "class Masses" with their catechists throughout the year, to deepen their understanding of and relationship to the Eucharist.
From Mr. B. Fuesel and Mrs. C. Smarz, who have been catechists for over thirty years, to Nick, Carissa, Becca, Alex, Ana, and Jackson, our high school helpers, everyone in REP is welcome to share their time and giftedness! And our REP Board is amazing - hard working and strong in their faith. Every summer they gather for an overnight retreat, spending time in prayer, reflection, and spiritual growth.
Please keep our religious education program, our children, their families, our catechists, aides and staff, in your prayers - that the Holy Spirit of God continue to bless us and inspire us.
Also please stop by the Religious Education office to register your child(ren) to our wonderful program, call at 708.388.4005 for more informtion or check out our REP web page by clicking HERE.

You might want to check out our beautiful Marian Garden, located between the School building and the Bernardin Center. The entrance is next to the Music Room and is open from 7:00AM to 9:00PM. It is a beautiful, shaded garden that affords a quiet and restful atmosphere for prayer and meditation. There are benches to sit on or a path to walk, whichever suits your need. A shrine to Mary is at the west end of the garden for those who wish to invoke Her prayers for their concerns. Our Parishoner Bob F. and other dedicated parishioners maintain this peaceful place. We thank them for their hard work and dedication and, at the same time, we encourage all to visit.
