Free Parking During Construction

Parking at Assumption is still free. It is just located behind the church instead of next to the church. For Mass and other church activities, park at Martparc at Orleans and Hubbard. Bring the parking ticket that you receive when you enter the garage to church. We will place a validation sticker on the ticket that provides you with two hours free parking from the time you entered the parking garage. Our office is now located at 351 W. Hubbard, Suite 401. Regular office hours are from 9 to 5 weekdays and from 9 to 2 on Saturdays.

Welcoming New Catholics

If you are an adult who has never been baptized, were baptized in another Christian faith and are interested in becoming Catholic, or were baptized Catholic but never made first communion and confirmation, consider being part of our RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults). It is a group process that meets on Sunday mornings from September to May. For more information, contact Fr. Joe. An information session will be held on August 28 at 11:30am in the Parish Hall.

Labor Day

On Labor Day, Monday September 5, Mass will be offered at 7:30am and 10:30am. Because of the holiday there will be no Taize Prayer Service in September.

Baptism Preparation Session

The next preparation session for parents and godparents of infants to be baptized is Monday September 12 from 7:00 to 8:15pm in the Parish Hall. This is for first time parents and for those who have never before attended a preparation session. Call the parish office to register. Baptisms are normally scheduled for the second and fourth Sundays of the month at 1:15pm and on the first weekend of the month during Mass.

Healing Our Cities

The U.S. Catholic Bishops have asked all of us to unite in a day of prayer for peace in our communities on Friday September 9, the Feast of St. Peter Claver, a Jesuit missionary to South America who devoted his entire priesthood to ministering to slaves. Our 7:00 and 12:10 Masses on September 9 will include a special litany and prayers of intercession for peace, justice, and healing in Chicago.
