Our parish has its own app!

Here are updated instructions on how to install our own app in your smartphone:

For those with iPhones:

1) Go to the Apple Store

2) Search on "Our Lady of the Snows Parish.”

3) Results will show our logo and the name “Our Lady of the Snows-Chicago,” most likely on top of the list.

4) Select to install the app.

5) Once installed, open the app and select your choice of notifications.  Then tap on “next.”

6) Create your profile to unlock other features.

7) That’s it! Enjoy the app.

For those with Android Phones:

    1) Go to Google Play Store

    2) Follow steps 2 through 7, as outlined above.

We will continue updating the app as we move along. You will be able to receive messages with important announcements, make donations, and be informed of everything we do here at Our Lady of the Snows.

Many blessings and happy app navigating!


As we are in phase 5 of the pandemic, we would like to share these guidelines with all of our parishioners, which are effective June 12-13, 2021:

  • Reservations are no longer required to attend Mass.
  • Checking in at the door is no longer required.
  • Use of masks is optional, but we encourage everyone to use one and exercise extreme care. If you are not fully vaccinated, you are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to wear a mask. 
  • All center pews will be open for seating.  Chairs and side pews will remain, at least for this weekend, with the current configuration.
  • Entrance through the Leamington Avenue side will be accessible, as well as the parking lot side.
  • Choirs may resume at full capacity.
  • The rite of peace is restored. However, extreme care is encouraged.
  • Sanitizing hands prior to Holy Communion is no longer required, but hand sanitizer will remain available.
  • Parishioners may receive Holy Communion in the mouth, if they so desire.

As we continue moving forward in this phase, more changes are expected to take place.
