Dear Parishioners and Friends,

 

Now that we have reached the capacity of 50 people for church services, we will be using a slightly simpler and easier method of signing up for church.

You still are welcome to call the church office at 773.561.5992 (M,W,F 11am-1pm) if you prefer to sign up by phone. Our secretaries have limited hours, but they will make every effort to respond to you as quickly as they can. If no one answers, please leave a message.

To sign up online, please click on the link below, which is very easy to use:

LITURGY SIGN UP

Simply click "sign up" on the date you want. Then, after you click the “submit" button, be sure to give the names of all people in your party under “comments” and select the number (“quantity”). Once the date reaches capacity, it will be displayed as “slots full."

Please be aware that on-line signups will not be available the day before the service; the list will be closed for administrative purposes.

All the same guidelines and precautions apply per our previous communications. They are reiterated on the sign-up page as well.

Since space is still limited, we ask you not to sign up for multiple Sundays in a row right away; we want to make sure everyone has a chance to sign up who wants to.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the church office.
