Our Parish offers many different types of opportunities for people to practice their faith by serving the community. We regularly welcome newcomers to participate in our many varied ministries. For additional information about any of them or to join them, please contact the rectory at 708-422-2400. Among the many ministries that the parish offers are:


Hundreds of parishioners serve the parish community by serving as: greeters welcoming the congregation to church, as ushers in caring for the needs of the parishioners during services, as lectors proclaiming the Word of God, as Ministers of the Eucharist in reverently distributing Holy Communion, as deacons assisting at Mass, as altar servers serving at Mass, and as music ministers by being members of our fine adult choir, the adult music ensemble, the Voices of Faith teen choir, and the children’s Spirit Choir. In addtion, parishioners join as sacristans in preparing our church for liturgical services. We regularly seek new parishioners to join these ministries.



Please contact our Pastor, Father Mark, or our Associate Pastor, Father Ryan, for hospital, nursing home or homebound visits and to bring Holy Communion to elderly or ill homebound parishioners.

Call the Parish Office at 708-422-2400 to arrange the visit.



Our parish St. Vincent De Paul Society is one of the most active in the entire archdiocese. It regularly holds semi-annual clothing drives, monthly food drives for the Sisters of St. Casimir Food Pantry in the Marquette Park area in Chicago, as well as a yearly food drive for St. Columbanus Parish. It also assists all calls for aide that come to the parish and regularly tends to the needs of parishioners.

Our St. Linus St. Vincent de Paul Society is always in need of people to deepen their Vincentian spirit of friendship, and to be responsive to the Christian calling to help those in need. If you would be willing to share some of your time and talents in this work of charity, please call Ed Worner at 708-606-9370.



St. Linus has an out-reach ministry through Alcoholics Anonymous (A.A.) and Gamblers Anonymous (G.A.), please call the rectory for meeting dates and times. The Outreach-Intervention Team also can give resources to families dealing with addiction. All inquiries are confidential.



Once a month parishioners gather in the Cardiff Center to make bag lunches for the Port Ministry in Chicago. This is another hands-on way of seeking to feed the hungry.

We offer Eucharistic Adoration at St. Linus Church Monday through Friday from 8 am to 4 pm in the Jesus, Light of the World Chapel, which is adjacent to St. Linus Church and entrance is from the Parking Lot.

THE ADORATION CHAPEL NEEDS YOU! - Can you commit to one day (Monday to Friday), for one hour (8 am to 4 PM)? - If you can, please contact Fr. Ryan Brady at the Rectory at 708-422-2400 or

We also offer time for Eucharistic Adoration on Fridays from 5 pm to 7 pm at Our Lady of the Ridge Church.

The Church and the world have a real need for Eucharistic worship. Jesus awaits in this Sacrament of Love. Let us not refuse the time to meet Him in adoration, in contemplation, full of faith. Let our adoration never cease. - St. John Paul II



St. Linus has the most senior parish Pro-Life group in the Archdiocese. They seek to educate the parish on Pro-Life issues and values. The parish also has a long and happy co-founding relationship with The Courage Program, based at neighboring St. Germaine Parish in Oak Lawn, that offers direct assistance to unwed pregnant women and young mothers, who may lack family support at this challenging time of their lives. During the month of January we hold a bassinette drive for items for newborns and babies. The parish also offers a monthly day of prayer for Pro-Life in our Perpetual Adoration Chapel.
