On November 7th Father Tony will had knee surgery and will undergo 3 weeks of rehabilitation.
We have been able to secure priests for all three weekends as we anticipate Father’s needs for rehab.  However, due to the scarcity of priests, there will be no weekday Masses. A Communion Service will be held, Monday through Friday at 8 am. There will be No Saturday 9 am Mass.
We ask that you continue to support your parish during these three weeks. However, if you wish to attend Mass during the week the following parishes have weekday Masses:

The Archdiocese of Chicago is committed to providing safe environments for the community. In the midst of a culture of violence, the Church is a staunch voice to call us to be a place of peace. The Archdiocese has long had a best practice restricting the presence of firearms in our facilities. Most of our buildings display signage, consistent with the laws of the State of Illinois, indicating that these weapons are prohibited on the premises. Cardinal Cupich recently distributed a Policy aimed at updating and clarifying the Archdiocese’s position on the prohibition of firearms on all property it owns and controls.
