Church Reopening

We are open again for Mass and receiving our Lord in Holy Communion—many have already joined us, even though the obligation to go to Sunday Mass is still dispensed by the Cardinal. Jesus himself has been waiting to reengage us in a wonderful embrace and dialogue, just as he did with his apostles and followers after his death and resurrection: Welcome back, you of little faith, he says to us. Blessed are those who have not seen (or received) and yet believe.

Pastor’s Message

“Thy will be done”

We have been praying a lot for the Renew My Church process: for St. Mary of the Angels, the three other parishes in our grouping, as well as for the whole Archdiocese of Chicago: we introduced the Renew My Church prayer into our Mass petitions four or five years ago, we have been praying the Memorare after Mass for and individually (people have committed to say 2,500 daily Memorares for our parish). We also composed a prayer to St. Joseph to guide our parish leadership toward effective evangelization and vitality.
