More About Our Lady of The Brook
Unlike a typical Catholic church, Our Lady of the Brook has chairs for worshipers rather than pews or kneelers. The multi-use "worship center" on Dundee also includes a social area and a religious education wing. Masses are offered on Sundays at 8am, 9:30am and 11:15am.
On Wednesdays from mid-June to mid-October, "The Brook" hosts a farmers' market in its parking lot from 7am to 1pm. Vendors come from as far as Michigan and Indiana, and shoppers can find everything from produce to baked goods, cheeses and specialty meats.
