Enjoy this video tribute to Father Mike Solazzo, as we bid him farewell and thank him for all that he has done for the people of Divine Mercy Parish, his previous parishes in the Archdiocese of Chicago, and the many people he has served through his involvement in countless ministries and organizations such as Misericordia and the Oblates of the Benedictine Sisters of Chicago.
We are grateful for the gift of his Priesthood, his loving and compassionate spirit, his wisdom and understanding in all sorts of situations, his kind soul and his friendship. We will miss you!

The Archdiocese is offering two wonderful resources for parishioners who are struggling during this time of pandemic. Have you lost a loved one? You can join on online grief support group. Would you like to pray with another person? We have someone with whom you can pray.
Archdiocese of Chicago’s Online Grief Groups
Each online grief group consists of a small group of adults (18 years of age or older) who have lost a family member or a friend. In the absence of our usual in-person parish life, our online grief groups are places to share stories and feelings with others who have also experienced loss. Our online grief group facilitators are not counselors and do not give advice, but they will be present to listen and to guide each grief group in prayer and discussion. As Jesus comforted Martha and Mary after the death of their brother, Lazarus, a grief group is a place of comfort in our tradition. If you have experienced loss and are interested in joining us, please sign up here.
