Welcome to Divine Infant Jesus

In the name of the Parish Pastoral Staff, and all the people of Divine Infant Parish, I welcome you. We are a Catholic Church of friendly folks and want you to know that all are welcome to worship with us and consider joining our parish. As parish administrator, it is my privilege to shepherd Divine Infant through a time of transition as we look forward to a new permenant pastor. On this website, you will find some of our many activities. On a separate website, you can learn about our excellent school. I am always impressed by the enthusiasm of our students. They have a justifiable pride in their school.
My prayer for you as you read this, and for all our people, is that you are becoming an intentional disciple of Jesus. What does this mean? Jesus wants to have a real and personal relationship with us. This is what it means to be a baptized and confirmed Christian. Disciples are followers and learners. We have been called to follow Jesus and to learn his ways. This means we need to listen and talk with him each day. We listen to him by reading the Bible, and asking what he is saying to us in the passage we have read. We tell him our concerns and listen to how he responds to us. We need quiet time for this to happen. When we take quiet time to pray, he will speak to us.
It is also my prayer that you will find both our worship, and our many parish activities, will help you grow in your discipleship. I hope you will find our liturgy engaging and uplifting. Our talented pastoral musicians help us to better sing the Lord’s praise. Our lectors proclaim God’s word, and I do my best to reflect on his word and proclaim it well in my preaching. If you are not a member of our parish, please consider joining us. If you are not Catholic and are interested in finding out more about our faith, please let us know. If you have any spiritual needs, do not hesitate to call so we can meet and talk. Finally know that I will keep all who look at our website in prayer. May you grow in the love of our Lord.
Peace and love always,
Father Mike Ahlstrom, Administrator

                 TABLE OF REMEMBRANCE

      The annual Mass of Remembrance will be Saturday, November 4 at 5:00 PM.  This year, will have a Table of Remembrance in front of the Divine Infant in the church.  We invite parishioners who have lost a loved one to bring a small framed photograph of their loved one, including their name, for display on this table.  Please put your name and telephone number on the back of the picture.  You may bring photos beginning October 28.  Our display will remain in the church until the First Sunday of Advent.  Photographs can then be picked up at the rectory.  This will be an opportunity for all of us at Divine Infant to pray for our deceased loved ones as a parish family.

Thank you for visiting our website!  We are Divine Infant Jesus Parish and School.  We have been serving catholics in Westchester, IL since our founding in 1947 by Rev. Fr. Charles Langan.  The photo above is of the Divine Infant Jesus shrine on the side altar in church.  


Watching over the Christ Child in the shrine is Saint Nicholas.  The fourth century bishop and wonderworker is the patron of children.  We venerate Holy Nicholas and entrust to his care the Christ Child and the faithful of Divine Infant Parish.

At Divine Infant Parish, every day is Christmas!
