Take Stock In Our Teens!: Summer Mission Trip Fundraising

In about  2 months, approximately 55 teens and 13 adults from SMV are headed to St. Louis, Missouri to do Mission Work.  Please support our Main Fundraiser for the Mission Trip by purchasing “stock” certificates after all Masses the weekends of May 30/31  and June 6/7.  Common Stock Certificates are $20 a share and Preferred Stock is $100 each.

As a stockholder, you will receive a postcard from a teen while on Mission and an invitation to a special Stockholders Meeting in August complete with a dinner, and an update on the Mission Week.   Please support us!


SMV Ministry Showcase - May 30 & 31


SMV Men's Club Golf Outing - Registration begins 5/30

Join the Men's Club for their 34th Annual Golf Outing on Sunday, June 28.  Held at White Deer Run Golf Club in Vernon Hills, this year the event will include a “conventional rotation and start” with the first tee time at 9:30 am.  There will be four par three opportunities that will provide cash awards for “closest to the pin” contestants.  You can purchase up to two ‘additional’ shots at each par three.  The proceeds from the “closest to the pin” contest will be used by the Teens to help offset the cost of their 2015 Mission Trip. 

Registration forms will be located in the narthex and in the parish office starting May 30th.  Cost for this event is $70.

This year, dinner will be provided as part of the golfer’s fee.  Dinner will be served at 6:00pm at the John P. Finnegan Parish Center.  All golfers, non-golfers, parishioners and friends are invited to the ‘all you can eat’ dinner.  The cost for the dinner is $12.00, $7.00 for children 6 to 12 years old.  Refreshments are also included in the dinner fee.  This year’s menu will include Italian sausage, Italian Beef, hot dogs, macaroni & cheese, baked mostaccioli, baked beans, salads and desserts. 

Lunch and refreshments will be available on a cash basis in the White Deer Run dining area before golf.  Registration forms and payment will be due on or before the deadline which is June 21st.  We will hope to have T-Times posted the week before the outing.  For additional information, call Larry Klauser at 847-816-0896 or e-mail Mike Ralph at or Larry at .
