OLW Masses to Double in July
Father Arthur and the Church Reopening Team are excited to announce that Our Lady of the Wayside Mass offerings will double beginning in July.
“The Reopening Team met earlier this week to review compliance and success of the 9:30 and 11:30 masses and determined that we are now in a ready position to double our mass offerings,” said Fr. Arthur. “Our goal from the beginning was to offer mass and Holy Communion to as many parishioners as was safely possible. We started conservatively, offering two Sunday Masses to 50 parishioners each. We learned from this process, made adjustments and increased attendance to 125 parishioners at each mass last week. Based on continued success of this roll-out process, we are now prepared to add 5:00 pm Saturday Vigil Mass and a 6:00 pm Sunday Mass to the 9:30/11:30 am Sunday lineup, starting in July,” added Father.
Preregistration for mass is mandatory and is available starting at 7:00 am the Friday preceding each Saturday or Sunday mass. Preregister online here.
If you require assistance registering, please contact Kathy Freiburger in the parish office at (847) 253-5353.
Face masks must be worn at all masses. Please also bring hand sanitizer if you have it.
Those unable or not quite ready to return to live mass, or those considered to be ‘most vulnerable,’ are encouraged to attend mass virtually. Streaming mass continues to be offered on Facebook at 5:00 pm each Saturday and will also be available on the OLW website shortly after the conclusion of live-streaming mass. Dispensation is still offered by the Archdiocese.
Hope to see you in church!
