It is the responsibility of the parish to bury their dead. The funeral director will contact the parish regarding arrangements. 

Perpetual Adoration Chapel
The Perpetual Adoration Chapel of Our Lady, Mother of the Eucharist, is available 24 hours a day for private prayer and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, exposed on the Altar. The Chapel is located in the Convent building (south of the church).

Novena in Honor of Saint Peregrine
Devotions in honor of Saint Peregrine, the patron saint of those who suffer with cancer will be held the third Monday of every month at 7:00 PM in the church combined with prayers for priests.

Visits to the Sick
Because of changes in hospital admitting policies, it is necessary to inform the Rectory when hospitalized parishioners would like a visit from a priest or deacon. Catholic chaplains are assigned to area hospitals to administer the Sacraments. Visitation parish priests visit Elmhurst Hospital twice a week on Tuesdays and Fridays.
