Welcoming New Catholics

If you are an adult who has never been baptized, were baptized in another Christian faith and are interested in becoming Catholic, or were baptized Catholic but never made first communion and confirmation, consider being part of our RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults). It is a group process that meets on Sunday mornings from September to May. We celebrate the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, and First Communion) at the first Mass of Easter. To find out more, contact Fr. Joe. RCIA begins September 10.

Blessing of Runners

It's an Assumption tradition. There will be a special blessing for those participating in the Bank of America Chicago Marathon during the 5:00pm Mass Saturday October 7. If you are running in the Marathon the next day, come to the 5:00 Mass on the 7th and bring your fans and your family! Pictured is the 2015 event. See the slide show in Celebrations.

Were you married here?

We sent a more formal invitation to couples who were married at Assumption during the past three years, inviting them to return for the 10:30 Mass on October 15 for a special blessing and food and drink afterwards in the Parish Hall. But we would like to extend that invitiation to all couples married at Assumption--be it earlier this year or as far back as 1881! Just kindly email and let us know you are coming. 

Marathon Sunday Parking

Those driving to Assumption for Mass on Sunday morning October 8 will need a special Marathon Parking Pass to gain entrance to Mart Parc, where we validate parking. Parking Passes will be available after all Masses the weekends of Sept 23-24 and Sept 30-Oct 1.
