We are excited to share that this June, we have TWO VBP Masses! You’re invited to join us on Saturday the 15th at Marytown and on Thursday the 27th at Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Glenview.
This March, for the Ember Saturday in Lent we were welcomed to St. Ita’s in Edgewater, a beautiful French neo-Gothic church staffed by the Conventual Franciscans.  This June, for the Ember Saturday after Pentecost we are delighted to visit the Italianate neo-Baroque Marytown, also staffed by the Conventual Franciscans!

Marytown is also
The National Shrine of St. Maximlian Kolbe, where perpetual adoration of Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament has been continuous, 24 hours a day, seven days a week since the chapel was dedicated in 1932. 

Come enjoy Marytown’s beautiful grounds in the summertime, and be sure to stop by their extensive bookstore!
Feast of Our Lady of Perpetual Help
On Thursday, June 27th at 7:00pm, Our Lady of Perpetual Help (OLPH) in Glenview will celebrate a very special Missa Cantata.  It will be sung by the Associate Pastor and good friend of VBP, Father Nicholas Kostyk.

Enjoy Heaven on Earth with Tomás Luis de Victoria’s splendid “Missa O quam gloriosum” in honor of Our Lady.  And obtain a plenary indulgence, since it is the parish's patronal feast!

OLPH is located at 1775 Grove St., Glenview, IL 60025

Field Trip!
The sixth-graders at Queen of All Saints Catholic School are learning about their faith! We were delighted to organize a beautiful Missa Cantata for them to experience this treasure of their heritage.

Special thanks to their teacher, Mrs. Maria Lee, and to St. Mary of Perpetual Help in Bridgeport for hosting us for the feast of Our Lady, Mediatrix of All Graces.

How Can You Help? 
Do you appreciate VBP’s work? It takes a lot of time, energy and funds to make these Masses happen! Interested in how you could get involved? 

Volunteer: If you are interested in donating your time and talent in any way, please contact us at We could always use help with set-up/take-down, advertising, networking and fundraising! Have an idea? Let us know!

Donate: While your faithful VBP organizers, our wonderful chaplain, priests, and acolytes are all volunteers, these Masses still cost money! Costs include the outstanding professional singers, provisions for the festive receptions, and printing and technology costs. You can donate to support this work here. Thank you for your generosity!
