Let one of the friars light a candle for your special intentions.


our mission

To serve the Gospel and the Church by forming Eucharistic disciples in prayer, evangelization, works of mercy, and Marian consecration in the spirit of St. Maximilian Kolbe.

  • Light A Candle

    Jesus said, "I am the Light of the world; the one who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have light and life.” (John 8:12) As long as we have Christ’s light in our hearts we shall never walk in darkness. For us Christians, a lighted candle symbolizes Christ, the Light of the world. And so it is that every moment we light a candle, we are connecting our minds and hearts to Him who is ever near and ready to heed our call. Submit your candle request HERE.

  • St. Anthony Holy Mass League

    We invite you to enroll your loved ones, friends and family (living or deceased) in the St. Anthony Holy Mass League. Intentions are remembered daily in this perpetual Mass league along with a special remembrance at the Novena to St. Anthony every Tuesday at 7:00 PM, and on June 13, the Feast of Saint Anthony. A St. Anthony Novena card and personalized Saint Anthony Novena folder will be given at the time of enrollment as an ongoing remembrance.

    Enroll at the Shrine Gift Shop or call 847-367-7800 ext. 236, or submit your request HERE.

  • Mass Intentions

    Due to the overwhelming amount of Mass Intentions we receive and the necessity for them to be offered in a timely manner, we are no longer accepting them online, but only in person at the shrine gift shop. In light of that development, you may consider enrolling your loved ones (living and deceased) in our St. Anthony Mass League, where your intentions will be remembered perpetually at daily Mass.
