The City of Chicago announced recently that face coverings are required in all indoor public spaces for all people over the age of 2, regardless of vaccination status. Therefore, Masks are now required indoors for all clergy, staff, volunteers and parishioners inside archdiocesan facilities in the City of Chicago, including Masses, liturgies and all activities/events within our parishes.
Our priority remains the safety of all God’s People, which is why the Archdiocese aligns their guidelines with the current guidance of our public health authorities. As their guidance changes, so must ours.
Again, thank you for your continued patience and flexibility as we take the necessary measures to protect human life in every way possible – including the use of masks.
- All capacity restrictions are lifted, Masses, liturgies, sacramental celebrations, parish/school events and all offices may resume 100% capacity.
- Physical distancing is NOT required for vaccinated persons, but please be respectful of other peoples personal space.
- Physical distancing is recommended by public health authorities, when possible, for unvaccinated persons if conditions allow up to 6 ft. of separation.
Temperature checks and Hand Sanitizing
- No Temperature checks.
- We encourage you to sanitize your hands when you enter the church.
- Sanitizing of the hands before receiving Communion is optional, please ask the Greeter/usher when you exit your pews.
- Proof of vaccination is NOT required for attendance at any liturgies or services.
As Catholics who cherish every human life, we urge anyone who has not been vaccinated to please do so for the safety of all. Approved vaccines are free and easily obtained. As Pope Francis has said, “I believe that morally everyone must take the vaccine. It is the moral choice because it is about your life but also the lives of others.” As disciples of Jesus, who preached and lived kindness for our brothers and sisters, we can do no less.
Reception of Holy Communion
- As has been our recent practice, we are not actively sanitizing your hands before you receive Holy Communion. But should you still wish to have your hands sanitized, please extend your hands to the Ministers of Hospitality as you exit your pews.
- Holy Communion will still only be in the form of Bread, the distributing/receiving Holy Communion from the cup remains suspended at this time.The archdiocese will communicate once sharing of the cup may resume.
