Our Lady of the Snows Re-Opening Update     (June 5, 2020)

According to the rules set by the Archdiocese of Chicago, we are open for baptisms, weddings, and funerals, following strict guidelines.  

Starting on June 14th we will begin celebrating Sunday Mass in public, as follows: 8 AM in Polish, 10 AM in English, and 12 noon in Spanish.  Attendance is limited to 50 people.   Weekday Masses will continue to be celebrated in private for the foreseeable future.  Both, weekday, and Sunday Masses will be streamed live through Facebook and Youtube for those who cannot attend.

Starting on June 15th, church will be open for private prayer, beginning at 10 AM and ending at 1:30 PM.  Attendance is limited to 10 people and only for 30 minutes at a time.  The Blessed Sacrament will be exposed, and a Benediction will conclude each 30-minute period.

IMPORTANT: to attend any of the above services, parishioners are required to make a reservation via a text message to 312-971-7440.  A confirmation message will be sent back once a reservation is confirmed or declined.  Reservations for Sunday Mass may only be made during the week preceding that Sunday.  Please, be considerate of other parishioners who also wish to worship with us.

We encourage you to view the pamphlets published by the Archdiocese of Chicago to prepare parishioners for worship, which are included in this site.

Thank you for supporting Our Lady of the Snows Parish.
