Once our leadership team is assigned and everyone has completed required training, our reopening certification form will need approval from the Archdiocese of Chicago. Following our certification approval, we open as confidence grows with our volunteers in place and at a pace and timing that seems appropriate for our situation.
Because we must limit the number of attendees for private prayer to minimize the risk of the spread of disease, and in order to avoid "turning people away" at our doors, we have established an email registration system. Once a reopening date has been established, we will email you with information about how to signup. We ask you to be patient as we establish this new system.
Science guides our collective cooperation to reopen worship. Our individual and collective willingness to unite remain a demonstration of our unity and love for one another. Soon, hopefully, the reopening will also include PHASE II where we can meet at the Table of the Word and the Table of the Eucharist. Even gathered with masks and appropriate distancing, we will praise the Risen Lord, opening ourselves to the working of the Holy Spirit in our midst.
With the inspiration of Mother Cabrini who assisted others during the pandemic of her time, we remain steadfast in faith, hope and love.
Yours in Christ,
Sister Bridget Zanin, MSC, RN Executive Director
and Reverend Msgr. Richard Hynes, Rector
