    "That which was from the beginning,
    which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have touched; we bear witness to you the Life Eternal that was with the Father, that you may have fellowship with us and our fellowship may be with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ,
    and that your joy may be full."
    John 1:1-3

  • Mental prayer

     Mental Prayer is for a set amount of time, ideally 30 minutes. It is time to just be with the Lord.  Normally you bring some theme or idea to your mental prayer to ponder and speak to God about. There are books with little meditations that we can use for ideas, or one might just open the Holy Gospels and read a little, or bring what has been on your mind to God.  We can think about Jesus and how he saved me; we can think of how God wants me to deal with a situation at home or at work, what is his will for me; we can consider God’s creation and his incredible wisdom; we can spend our time thanking him for things in life; we can think about the New World ahead and what it will be like to be resurrected; we can ponder our own death, even thinking of what I will want to have done in life on that day; we can bring a painful burden to God that we are carrying, and our tears and our worries; we can bring the terrible sins of our life in repentence and thank God for his mercy; we can think of how I can serve God better in my daily duties or how I can help my kids more or how I can be a better husband or wife.        But we don’t just think about a subject, we take it up with the Lord: ‘Lord, how should I be? What do you ask of me? Oh God, I need your help, see my misery.’ Oh Lord, I thank you so much. And very important: we also listen. 
            Mental Prayer should really be our oasis with God each day; it is a time to give him our undivided heart. We can pray in our room, or by making a visit to the Church, or even better, by visiting the Adoration Chapel co-located with the Convent. Also, consider signing up to be an Adorer. We only get one life! So let’s give our heart to God the very best that we can. 

  • Adoration chapel

    St. John Vianney's Chapel of Perpetual Adoration is the oldest in the Archdiocese of Chicago. It is a beautiful and peaceful place to pray with Jesus, he is waiting for you to stop in and bring your heart to him.
    Consider signing up for one hour per week. If you wish to enter the chapel at nightime, you must request a keycard from the parish office .

    Corpus Christi ProcessionOur annual Corpus Christi was beautifully guided by the Northlake Police Department. We carried our Eucharistic Lord through the streets, testifying to the truth: Jesus is here with us, in the world today!
