The City of Chicago announced on August 17 that face coverings are required in all indoor public spaces for all people over the age of 2, regardless of vaccination status. Therefore, masks are now required indoors for all clergy, staff, volunteers and parishioners inside archdiocesan facilities in the City of Chicago, including Masses, liturgies and all activities/events within our parishes. 

St. Michael's has been really busy!



Feast of All Souls, November 2, 2021
Why do we light candles for the dead?

              Catholics light candles for the dead as an act of remembrance or as a prayer for their souls.  They can light candles at any time; however, death anniversaries and All Souls’ Day are particularly popular dates to  light candles in prayer for the dead.  November 2nd is set aside by many Christians to commemorate those whom have died.

This year, the parish has ordered memorial candles that will have the name of our departed loved one inscribed on them.  These candles will be lit on November 2nd, and they will burn for six days.  For more information, or to place your order, please see the sacristan after Mass in the back of church, or call the parish office.  Orders of 2 or more candles can be placed through our online giving program.  Please click on the candle image on the left to order online.

The suggested offering for each candle is $5.00


Turkey Drive

We count our blessings every day, particularly this year, as so many families are still being impacted by Covid.  What better way to show our thankfulness than to share with others?  St. Michael’s Annual Turkey & Hunger Relief Drive, spearheaded by the Human Concerns & Needs Commission, is the perfect outlet!  Be part of making someone’s Thanksgiving Dinner happier by making a donation to the purchase of 200 turkeys.  The turkeys will be delivered to two local food pantries on Saturday, November 20, for distribution to families they serve.  The two groups, St. Malachy Parish (now the home of Santa Maria Addolorata pantry) and Blessed Sacrament Food Pantry/St. Agatha Parish, are so appreciative of the food donations. Side note:  We already know that we must collect additional funds this year, for the turkey prices have gone up and the supply is less.  There are so many ways to donate:

1. Please feel free to use a plain envelope marked “Holiday Food Drive” and drop your donation in the Offertory at church or drop off at the Parish Office.

2. Click on the Turkey Image to take you directly to the Give Central page

3. Text TURKEY to 312-313-9692.
