Thank you to those of you who responded to the invitation to return to Mass on May 1-2. The attendance numbers are a step in the right direction. As I stated last week, the Saturday evening Mass is already averaging about 50 people per Mass. However, the 8:30am on May 2nd was 43 people and the 11:00am was 53 people. That is GREAT, but as has been stated many times by the government, we cannot fall back into our old ways of doing things. I believe this coming Sunday will be a little bit better because of Mother's Day -- it's special. I hope this weekend and next will bring even more people to our spiritual home. It would feel great to keep the pre-COVID Mass schedule, but as I stated, that will depend on what we average between yesterday, this coming weekend, and the following. otherwise, it'll be back to Sunday Mass being at 10am. I know it can feel confusing, but I know we have the potential to fill our church during these COVID times. I pray we will once again.
We are, again, offering an opportunity to enroll your mothers or any woman who is acting in the role of mother to you, either living or deceased in a Novena. You will find the cards for this Novena on the table in the back of the Church. Please fill out the LARGE envelope, and place your suggested $10.00 donation in the LARGE envelope and deposit this envelope in the basket. PLEASE KEEP THE MOTHERS’ DAY CARD AND ENVELOPE.
Help Catholic schoolteachers and staff get COVID-19 vaccines!
The Archdiocese of Chicago is working with Loyola Healthcare and Agudath Israel Administration to provide COVID-19 vaccines to Catholic and partnering faith-based schoolteachers and staff in the Chicago area. To help get this done as efficiently as possible, volunteers are needed to assist at four vaccine clinics in Chicago and the near-west suburbs. Both clinical and non-clinical volunteers are needed, so if you’re at least 18 years of age and you can share time with basic computer entry, you’re qualified! Interested in helping? Complete the appropriate volunteer interest form for either provider:
Loyola Administration Volunteer Form. Locations include:
· Loyola Medical Center: 2160 S. First Ave, Maywood
· Gottlieb Memorial Hospital: 701 W. North Ave., Melrose Park

Agudath Israel Administration Volunteer Form. Location:
· Joan Dachs Bais Yaakov Elementary: 3200 W. Peterson Ave., Chicago
