Located in the near western Chicago suburb of North Riverside, we are a Catholic community that gathers to worship God and do the work of the Lord.
We claim as our mission the words of St. Paul, “Let us not grow weary of doing good.”(Galatians 6:9)
The Village’s motto is “A Small Community with a Big Heart.” While quite descriptive of the wider North Riverside community, this statement is true to the identity of our parish! We may be small, but we always make room for more!
Here at Mater Christi we are blessed to be the home of the Mother of Mothers Shrine. This beautiful outdoor shrine stands as a testament of the Blessed Mother’s care for all her children.
We invite you to explore our website, but more so we hope you’ll come and visit us!
