Our Lady of the Snows Re-Opening Update     (July 7, 2020)

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

On June 14th we started celebrating Sunday Mass in public, as follows: 8 AM in Polish, 10 AM in English, and 12 noon in Spanish.  Attendance is limited now to 100 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.

Church is open for private prayer, beginning at 1 PM and ending at 2 PM.  Attendance is limited to 50 people. Confessions are heard during this time.  The Blessed Sacrament is exposed, and a Benediction concludes the hour.

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.

Actualización de reapertura de Nuestra Señora de las Nieves (7 de julio de 2020)

De acuerdo con las reglas establecidas por la Arquidiócesis de Chicago, estamos abiertos para bautizos, bodas y funerales, siguiendo estrictas pautas.

A partir del 14 de junio, comenzamos a celebrar la Misa dominical en público, de la siguiente manera: 8 AM en polaco, 10 AM en inglés y 12 del mediodía en español. La asistencia está ahora limitada a 100 personas. Las Misas de lunes a viernes continuarán celebrándose en privado en el futuro previsible. Tanto las Misas de lunes a viernes como las de domingo se transmitirán en vivo a través de Facebook y Youtube para aquellos que no puedan asistir.

La iglesia está abierta para la oración privada, comenzando a la 1 PM y terminando a las 2 PM. La asistencia está limitada a 50 personas. El Santísimo Sacramento es expuesto, y una bendición concluye la hora. Durante esta hora tambien hay confesiones.

IMPORTANTE: para asistir a cualquiera de los servicios anteriores, los feligreses deben hacer una reserva por mensaje de texto al 312-971-7440. Se enviará un mensaje de confirmación una vez que se confirme o rechace una reserva. Las reservas para la Misa dominical solo se pueden hacer durante la semana anterior a ese domingo. Por favor, sea considerado con otros feligreses que también desean estar presentes con nosotros.

Les recomendamos que vean los folletos publicados por la Arquidiócesis de Chicago para preparar a los feligreses para las liturgias, que se incluyen en este sitio.
