St. Patricia Parish Reopening Information
St. Patricia Parish has received its Phase 2 Certification!
During Phase 2, St. Patricia Church will be open for Daily and Weekend Masses beginning Thursday, June 11th!
A Mass Reservation System is in place and you MUST have a reservation to attend Mass. There will be a capacity limit in place of no more than 90 attendees currently for all Masses and all must follow social distancing guidelines. (Families and members of the same household are exempt from these six-foot social distancing requirements.) Please bring your own face covering. No one will be permitted entry without a mask or face covering
Please note the dispensation from Sunday Mass and Holy Days of Obligation continues. The Archdiocese of Chicago still advises that the elderly and those with underlying medical conditions stay at home and participate through live-streamed and televised Masses. While our parish staff and volunteers will attempt to take appropriate precautions consistent with the advice of public health authorities, parishioners and guests should understand that they assume the risk of contracting COVID-19 any time they enter a public space since such precautions do not eliminate the risk of infection. Thank you
Church doors will open 30 minutes prior to the start of Mass. All attendees will need to be checked in. Please consider arriving slightly early to allow extra time to be seated. Click here to read the Parishioner Reopening Guide for tips on what to expect when returning to Mass.
We are looking forward to seeing many of you at Mass in the next few days! Please be patient with our volunteers as we learn this new system of celebrating together. If you would like to volunteer, please contact the Rectory or visit our volunteer sign up page here
