19th Sunday in Ordinary Time Gospel and Reflection from Father Rafal
The Sacred Heart Chapel of Eucharistic Adoration is currently closed during the COVID-19 situation affecting all parishes. Notice will be sent when the Chapel re-opens.
Eucharistic Adoration is available from the outside the church vestibule in the courtyard 24/7 (except when the church is open for Masses or sacraments.) This temporary chapel will be available as long as weather permits.
We are still in need of more volunteers to assist with various aspects of our parish reopening plan. All parishioners between the ages of 16 and 60 who are healthy with no underlying health conditions are called upon to volunteer. Please email theparish at firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer and list your preference of team (if any.) All volunteers will be required to participate in training and will be divided up into teams for scheduling. Maintaining sufficient volunteers is critical to the reopening of our church. Prayerfully consider stepping up if you are able - we need all hands on deck to reopen our church!
The Parish Office is currently open for limited office hours, Monday-Friday from 9am to 12pm.
We encourage those that have business with the office to please call ahead to make an appointment.
For more information and access the linked Sign Up Genius sheets for weekend Masses, Confessions and Sacraments, please see the Parish Reopening Resources webpage. For those without access to the internet, or who may have difficulty signing up themselves, please call the Parish Office at (630) 968-1366, ext. 124 to request assistance from Parish Staff to get signed up. **Note: you will be confirmed with a return phone call and we will fill Mass reservations in the order they are received.
We also will continue to recommend - in alignment with the Diocese of Joliet and health officials - that those individuals who are considered "vulnerable" (over the age of 60 and/or underlying medical condition such as diabetes; lung disease; undergoing cancer treatment, etc.) should continue to stay at home until more information is obtained about the safety of that population going out into public spaces, such as our church. The dispensation from Sunday Masses will remain in effect for all Catholics in the Diocese of Joliet, even during the resumption of these public Masses.
Holy Trinity Catholic Parish is under the administration of the Congregation of the Resurrection.
Committed to living out the endless love of the Trinity, we are a welcoming, faith-sharing Catholic family of believers,
centered on the Holy Eucharist as the source of our life in Christ.
