Attending Sunday Mass  

Because we are limited to 20% capacity by the Archdiocese under COVID-19 restrictions, there is a reservation system for Sunday Mass. Please click on the Login button at the top of this page and follow the directions. Phone reservations are also accepted, and walk-ins are welcome until our capacity is reached. We can accommodate 60 persons in the Church and an additional 40 in the Parish Hall, where Mass is livestreamed.

Cardinal Cupich has extended the dispensation from attending Sunday Mass. So, we are continuing to offer a video Mass from Assumption each weekend. The Mass will be posted Saturdays at 4:00pm. Click the quick link to access our broadcast, which will also be posted on Facebook and YouTube.

When Is The Church Open?  

The Church will open 20 minutes before each weekend Mass and 20 minutes before our weekday morning Mass. We will open for the 12:10 mass at 11:45 and will remain open until 1:00pm. Because of the covid-19 guidelines, we cannot allow visits to the church outside of Mass times. You must wear a mask for the entire time you are in church. Confessions are heard on Fridays from 11:35 until 12:05pm.

Please see the Parishioner Reopening Guide for important information about how Mass is different.

Scripture Study of 1 Corinthians  

The struggles faced by the early Christians in Corinth were in many ways similar to the ones we face today. Find out more by joining the Scripture Study of Paul's First Letter to the Corinthians. The group will meet on Monday evenings at 6:30 via Zoom for eleven weeks beginning January 25. Videos supplied by the Great Adventure Bible Study will be used to stimulate our conversation. There is a $30.00 fee to cover the cost of the workbook. For more information or to register, please email

What Is Alpha?  

Alpha is a process designed to help those who are marginally connected to the faith to form a relationship with Jesus and come to understand the basics of Christianity. This is accomplished through a series of videos and discussions that focus on different questions people have about faith and life. Although aimed at those who are not regular churchgoers, anyone interested in becoming more personally engaged as  a disciple of Christ can benefit from Alpha. We will start a new Alpha series at the beginning of March on Wednesday evening. For more information email
