Dear Parishioners,

First Sunday of Advent

The first Sunday of Advent is November 29th. This is a time of preparation and anticipation.   The Church waits for the return of the Messiah on the clouds of heaven just as the Chosen people awaited the coming of the Messiah at the center point of history.  We will be holding a drive-thru confession service on Saturday, December 12th from 3 pm to 445 pm.  The drive-thru venue will be held in our North Parking lot and will provide a safe, socially distanced, well-ventilated means by which to receive the Sacrament of Forgiveness.

Our Lady of Guadalupe Novena

Fr. Eduardo with the assistance of our parishioners has put together a Novena celebration on our parish YouTube page which can be prayed beginning December 4th and ending on the Feast Day of Our Lady of Guadalupe on December 12th.  Please stay tuned for more information or log onto our parish YouTube page.

Christmas Masses – Make sure you sign up

The Sign-Up Genius for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day will be available on Thanksgiving Day.  If you are wanting to attend Christmas Mass in-person, please make sure that you sign-up on the sign-up genius accessible through our parish webpage beginning on Thanksgiving Day. We will be checking names and only those who are signed up will be allowed in church for Christmas.

There are three different venues for Mass at each Mass time:  the parish church and gymnasium will have a live Mass and the Parish Life Center will have the Mass from the church livestreamed with distribution of communion.  Please sign-up for the specific venue in which you wish to attend Mass.  Please notice that you will be signing up for a specific venue which is not transferrable.  Access for all Masses will be made at Door#2, the PLC entrance near the church.

The Mass times are as follows:

  • Christmas Eve 4 pm, 6 pm and 10:30 pm.
  • Christmas Day 7:30 am, 9:30 am and 11:30 am.

If you do not have access to our parish webpage, you may phone Christine Balaty at 630-469-0404, ext.2107, and she will sign you up. Please make sure to contact her during regular office hours.

Parking in Main Lot

You may have noticed the large signs at the entrance to our main lot warning those without parking permits that their cars will be towed if they do not possess a parking sticker.  This has reduced some of the congestion in our parking lot; however, we want to inform our parishioners that we will begin towing within the next couple of weeks those cars without stickers.  If you do not have your sticker on your car, please make sure you do so.

May Almighty God bless you and keep you.


In Christ,

Fr. Thomas Milota
