A very big Thank You to all who participated in our annual St. Mark Giving Tree this year. Because of your generosity, we helped make Christmas a little brighter for 114 families (368 individuals). The families, (children, teens, and adults) who needed our help, were able to celebrate a blessed Christmas with traditional holiday food and gifts generously supplied by you.

Along with our generous parishioners, we want to thank a local business that contacted us to participate in our Giving Tree. Forbici Salon in downtown Arlington Heights generously filled and returned a significant number of gift envelopes.

SPRED
SPecial REligious development

Our Lady of the Wayside
Arlington Heights, IL

OLW is forming a small faith community for people aged 22 + who have a developmental disability. If you or someone you know are caring for a person with developmental disabilities, OLW invites him/her into this wonderful program. 

The program, SPRED, is an Archdiocesan Agency created to bring forth an awareness in our special friends as persons of dignity who are loved by God. A welcoming space, the bonds of friendship, the proclamation of the WORD and inclusion in the sacramental life of the parish are essential for growth in faith. Our program will facilitate a one-on-one activity, a group spiritual reflection and an agape to foster friendship and religious development.  We will meet once a month on a Saturday morning at the Parish Center.

We are currently forming our SPRED group to begin in the Spring of 2018 and are ready to welcome new participants.

Please contact any one of the OLW SPRED ministry team members listed below for more information. If you'd like to schedule an informal meeting, please contact Maureen or Tom.
