Through worship, prayer and sharing the Gospel Message of Our Savior, Jesus Christ, we offer our parish family the opportunity to develop a personal relationship with God. Transformed by His Spirit, our parishioners go forth into the larger community to minister to all of God's people, share the message of Jesus with others, and be a living witness to our Faith.

Click HERE to read the cardinal's decree on the joining of Our Lady of the Ridge and St. Linus.
Wednesday, February 17th, the archdiocese announced that, beginning July 1st, the new pastor of Our Lady of the Ridge and St. Linus Parish will be Reverend Mark Walter, the current pastor of St. Linus.
Over the next few months, the archdiocese and the pastors of the current parishes will support the communities in their transition to the new parish and school structures. The archdiocese’s Renew My Church Accompaniment Team will work with local leaders to ensure the uniting faith communities and staff are supported through this time of change. All parishes will embark on the next phase of renewal to become stronger, more sustainable and capable of reaching more people in their work of making disciples of Jesus Christ, building communities and inspiring witness.
The Our Lady of the Ridge Knights of Columbus would like to thank everyone who donated to the 40 cans of Lent food campaign. We have collected about 3200 lbs of non perishables for St. Vincent DePaul and the Port Ministry. I would also like to thank Fr. Wayne for allowing us to run another successful campaign. Without his support this would not have been possible.
The Knights are again participating in the Baby Bottle Project to support the Women's Centers of Greater Chicagoland. Please return the bottles Mother's Day weekend, May 8-9.
St. Linus Men's Golf League We have openings for new members and want to invite Our Lady of the Ridge men to join our league. We play at 9am on Thursdays, mid-May to September at Stony Creek Golf Course, 5850 West 103rd Street, Oak Lawn. Golf is good for you: getting outside, fresh air, exercise, friendly members. We play nine holes in the league, but you can play on for eighteen, if you like. Most everybody stops for a beer or a soft drink on the patio afterwards. Lunch is available, too. Click HERE for course info. If you are interested, annual dues are $25. Send a check to Chuck Shanle, 5304 Stony Creek Drive, Oak Lawn, IL 60453. If you have questions, call Fred Metz (708-972-8866), Bob Kellam (312-405-7380), or Bill Parks (708-267-1516).

Our Lady of the Ridge has Prayer Ministers who have completed a formation program for this ministry. They are available to you as the need arises in your life.

Due to the Covid-19 situation, our next scheduled Prayer Ministry dates are pending.
