Welcome New Parishioners
Through Baptism we become God's children and brothers and sisters of one another and with Christ. Through registration we become members of Our Lady of Good Counsel Church parish family of faith. We always welcome new members and hope that you will find our parish family a place where your faith will be nourished. We ask that you visit our parish office to fill out a registration form as soon as possible. As a parish family, we are committed to share our goods, talents and faith with one another.

Our Lady of Good Counsel Year of Mercy
As part of the celebration of the Jubilee of Mercy, Our Lady of Good Counsel has been given the honor of housing the Door of Mercy for the Aurora deanery, one of six such doors in the Rockford Diocese. During the jubilee, the pope is encouraging people to make a pilgrimage to these doors to receive special graces, either for themselves or loved ones who have passed away.
As part of this celebration, Our Lady of Good Counsel parish has organized several opportunities for your parishioners to have a special pilgrimage experience.
Each Sunday throughout the liturgical year, our church will be open to visitors from 3 to 5 p.m. In addition to passing through the Holy Doors and engaging in silent prayer, guided tours of our church (including our newly dedicated Our Lady of Guadalupe Shrine) are available.
Groups of 10 or more may request the church be opened for a special daytime or evening visit, including a church tour. These arrangements can be made by calling our parish office weekdays at 630-851-1100.
Quote on Mercy
“Christ has no body now on earth but yours, no hands but yours, no feet but yours, yours are the eyes through which Christ's compassion is to look out to the earth, yours are the feet by which He is to go about doing good and yours are the hands by which He is to bless us now.”
~St. Teresa of Avila~
