UPDATE: Christmas Eve Mass Times

Posted on November 30, 2021 by Published by

On November 23, Father Arthur received notification from Bishop Robert Casey, Vicar General, regarding scheduling of anticipatory Christmas Eve Masses. The longstanding policy of the Archdiocese of Chicago is that the time for the vigil liturgy is to begin no earlier than 4:00 pm.

The Bishops of the Provence of Illinois recognized, however, that many parishes need to accommodate large numbers of worshipers on Christmas Eve. The Bishops agreed to grant requests for exemptions from the 4:00 pm policy. In accordance with the Bishops of the Province of Chicago, no permission will be given for the celebration of a Christmas Eve Vigil Mass prior to 3:00 pm on December 24.

To comply with this policy, we updated our Christmas Eve Mass schedule as follows: Children/Family Mass – 3:00 pm. Teen Mass – 4:30 pm. Additional Masses – 6:00 and 10:00 pm. Christmas Day Masses will be celebrated at 7:30, 9:30 and 11:30 am.
