 Lent 2020 - Ash Wednesday, February 26th to Easter Sunday, April 12th



Sunday Morning,
Channel 50 (WPWR) 8:30am

Dear Friends in Christ,

       During this time of uncertainty and anxiety, I pray that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy. This crisis challenges us to act responsibly by following the social isolation guidelines while striving to stay close emotionally and spiritually to our families, our friends and our communities. Please join me in praying for those affected by COVID-19, as well as our first responders, health care workers and individuals who have lost income due to precautionary closures.

       Times such as these highlight the need for the spiritual sustenance and community connectivity our Archdiocese parishes provide every member of our Catholic community. To protect the safety of our community, most pastoral services are currently being performed virtually. I invite you to visit our website,, for up-to-date information on televised liturgies and other resources.  Click >>HERE<<.

       It is critically important that our parishes and pastors receive the offertory support they need to remain operational and sustainable despite the suspension of weekly Masses. The Archdiocese has developed a universal online offertory page or where the faithful can make an offertory donation to any parish in the Archdiocese. These donations will assist the parishes with ongoing expenses related to ministry, maintenance, staff and other pressing needs, that depend on regular offertory support from parishioners. Many of our parishes are suffering significant financial hardship during this challenging time. Your online support will make a critical difference. 

       Additionally, as we are sensitive to the financial hardship suffered by many in recent days, we have also launched a Coronavirus Emergency Fund. This fund will support members of our community who have been negatively affected by the pandemic. For example, the fund will support parents of Catholic school students who might struggle with tuition payments because of unexpected job loss, ministries providing the needy with sustenance or parish communities deeply harmed by the pandemic. Our neighbors down the street and across the Archdiocese need our support at this critical moment. Your donation can help provide them with that support.

       Please visit to support parish offertory, the Coronavirus Emergency Fund or both as your means allow. Your generosity is needed now more than ever.

       Our Archdiocese community has always come together to support one another during times of need, and I ask you to do so again. Please continue to pray for each other, as I continue to pray for you.

Sincerely Yours in Christ,

Archbishop of Chicago

By devoting your time and talent as lectors and Eucharistic Ministers you could help make our liturgies be truly life–giving celebrations as it could and should be.

It's your decision at which Mass you'll be able to help and usually your help is only needed once each month. Be available to meet with homebound parishioners as needed.
