Mass Intentions (updated 4/8/2020)
Due to the extension of the Governor's Shelter at Home order, the office is currently accepting Mass intention requests at 630-257-6134 ext. 3, or by email to the secretary. Fr. Kurt and our regular guest presiders will be offering those intentions which are scheduled for Sunday and weekday Masses. 
Can YOU also pray for those listed in our bulletins on pages 10 and 11?  Thank you for supporting your neighbor where we see the face of Christ!  
We are in this together.

Contributions Consideration
In an effort to help keep everyone's virus exposure to a minimum, please do not drop off contribution envelopes at the Parish Office.​  The above left "Sunday Offering" online giving button, visiting the Chicago Archdiocese Offertory website, or mailing your contributions to the parish office, are much safer options.  EFT can also be considered for long-term giving (EFT is not set-up for one-time contributions).  The Archdiocese is considering all possible options to help the parishes and the Church of Chicago remain viable, so we appreciate your financial help, and notes of encouragement.
Bless you & stay safe, Fr. Kurt
