Food Pantry-Did you know that at the SJB site, the Parish has a Food Pantry and it is STOCKED and OVERFLOWING with Food! If you or someone you know is in need of food, please do not hesitate to call the SJB Office at 773-486-4300 and we'll take care of you!! (Pass the word along, you do NOT have to be a parishioner or attend Mass at either SJB or SH to receive food!!!)
MASKS - As you might have heard ... There is a slight uptick in Covid-19 cases in the City of Chicago.As of publication time tonight, we have not received any word from the Archdiocese about a change in protocol involving masks in Church.Use your best judgement when it comes to your own safety and the safety of others, and do not come to church if you are feeling ill. As always, be kind and respectful to one another if the person choses or not to wear a mask. Remember, we're all in this together!
We hope to see you at one of the Masses this weekend, wear a mask or not, and don't forget to bring a friend or two!!
Blessed Carlo Acutis Parish Mission Statement:
We are a multicultural, intergenerational Catholic parish community of people on the journey to learning about, celebrating, serving and proclaiming our faith in the Risen Jesus.
A mission statement says who we are and what we do. Please take a few minutes and reflect and pray on this mission statement. Does this mission statement describe our parish? As we continue to grow together, we can add to this statement. Your input is welcome. Please send suggestions to Father Paul Sims, C.R. firstname.lastname@example.org.
Congratulations Class of 2022!
