Per the governor’s Aug. 26 mandate, 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 all archdiocesan facilities (including Lake County, Suburban Cook County and the City of Chicago), including Masses, liturgies and all activities/events within our parishes. 

Religious Education Registration is      now closed.
