Sunday Evening Mass at St. Edmund Church


Sunday Evening 5 pm Mass to begin on January 22 at St. Edmund Church

We are excited to announce that we added a new Sunday evening Mass to our weekend Mass schedule. For several years throughout the Renew My Church process, we have been discussing the possibility of jointly sharing responsibility for a new Sunday evening Mass geared towards a more robust welcome of Young Adults in their twenties and thirties. While the focus will be on growing a Young Adult outreach in the greater Oak Park Catholic community, it should be noted that ALL ARE WELCOME to join in this weekly Eucharist. The beauty of every Mass on any given weekend is that indeed, “everyone” is there! However, it is possible for a particular Mass to extend an increased effort at welcoming a particular demographic of the Church.

We are also aware that many young families will welcome this time as Sunday morning sporting events can sometimes conflict with participating in a morning Mass on the Lord’s Day.

Frs. Carl, Rex, and Robert, along with the Music Directors from our two unified parishes, have been meeting for several months with a core group of young adults to begin planning for this a weekly Mass that will hopefully become a meeting place, outreach and ministry site for young adults to share and celebrate their faith in our area. This Mass will be co-sponsored by the two Oak Park Catholic Parishes, Ascension and St. Edmund and St. Catherine-St. Lucy and St. Giles. Our parish priests will rotate as the presiders. Our Music Directors, David Anderson, Sue Kaszynski and Michael Silhavy, will be forming a new young adult ensemble of singers and instrumentalists and will share leadership and coordination of the overall music ministry for this Mass. Jane Anne Campbell will coordinate the young adult liturgical ministers who will be serving at this weekly Mass. It is our hope and goal for all Music and Liturgical Ministries (Lectors, Greeters, Servers, and Ministers of Communion) to be provided by our young adults.

Young adults interested in serving in any music or liturgical role can use the online form linked below, then enter your contact information and areas of interest. You may also contact any of our parish priests or any of the music directors at our different sites: David Anderson at d.anderson@ascensionoakpark.com, Michael Silhavy at michaelsilhavy@gmail.com, or Sue Kaszynski at skaszynski@stgilesparish.org.

Those interested in serving for a ministry other than music, should contact Jane Anne Campbell at ja.campbell@ascensionoakpark.com.

COMING TO MASS


  • All are welcome at St. Catherine of Siena – St. Lucy, St. Giles and St. Edmund Churches. Pandemic Restrictions on numbers in the church are lifted, and we no longer need to require registration prior to attending Masses or any other prayer service or event. Come to church whenever you are able.
  • Masks are optional for all those entering the Churches and all buildings on the Parish campus.
  • During Mass and other services, come to participate with your heart and your voice! We will be providing worship aids so that we may once again all sing together.
  • Eucharistic Ministers will continue to sanitize their hands prior to the distribution of communion. Those coming to communion may have their hands sanitized if they wish.

Some may be nervous about returning to Mass and those that have been back in church may be nervous about these changes. Greeters and Ushers will remain present as you enter the building to ease the transition back to church. If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to one of the greeters or ushers and they can assist you.

Our hearts yearn to be present again with each other. Welcome Home!

PRAYER FOR SPIRITUAL COMMUNION – My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love you above all things, and I desire to receive you into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace you as if you were already there and unite myself wholly to you. Never permit me to be separated from you. Amen.
