Attending Sunday Mass  

Because we are limited to 20% capacity by the Archdiocese under COVID-19 restrictions, there is a reservation system for Sunday Mass. Please click on the Login button at the top of this page and follow the directions. Phone reservations are also accepted, and walk-ins are welcome until our capacity is reached. We can accommodate 60 persons in the Church and an additional 50 in the Parish Hall, where Mass is livestreamed.

Cardinal Cupich has extended the dispensation from attending Sunday Mass. So, we are continuing to offer a video Mass from Assumption each weekend. The Mass will be posted Saturdays at 4:00pm. Click the quick link to access our broadcast, which will also be posted on Facebook and YouTube.

For Our Virtual Congregation  

Our Video Mass for Holy Thursday and our Video Liturgy of the Passion of the Lord will be uploaded on our website on the afternoon of Holy Thursday and Good Friday. Our Easter Mass, featuring music by our four cantors, will be uploaded after 7:00pm on Holy Saturday evening.

Eucharistic Adoration  

There will be exposition of the Blessed Sacrament on the Third Monday of each month from 6:00 to 8:00pm. Exposition will next take place on April 19. While in Church you must practice social distancing and wear a face mask. Validated parking will be available at MartParc, Orleans and Hubbard.

Baptism Preparation Session  

Our next preparation session for parents (and, if possible, godparents) of infants to be baptized is Monday May 3 via Zoom. Sessions are from 7:00 to 8:00pm.  These sessions are for first time parents  and for parents who have never before attended a preparation session. Call the Parish Office to register (Advanced registration is required) It is not necessary to wait for the baby to be born to attend a preparation session. During the pandemic, baptisms are scheduled on an individual basis. More here

A Movie That Features Us  

The award-winning documentary "I Have A Name," about the Chicago Help Initiative and its efforts to provide food, programming, and services to the homeless and the needy, can now be viewed by all of us on-line. CHI was founded by Assumption parishioner, Jacqueline Hayes, and Assumption has been an active partner and supporter of CHI from its beginnings. Several scenes from the movie were filmed inside our church. The film gives voice to many individuals facing homelessness, as they open up their lives to us. To view the film, click here.
