Parish Re-Opening Information

St. Emily Parish has been certified for Phase 2 of the Archdiocesan Re-opening Plan and has resumed public Masses. Under the new guidelines, we may celebrate Mass with 20% of our seating capacity – 200 people per mass.

We currently celebrate Mass at 8:30am Monday through Saturday. Our weekend Mass schedule includes Saturday (anticipated) at 5pm and Sunday at 7:30am, 9:30am, 11:30am and 6:00pm.

Please know that the general dispensation from Sunday and Holy Day obligations continues, and we will continue to livestream our daily 8:30am Masses and Sunday 9:30am Mass.

Because of the limitations on attendance, we want to offer all who would like to attend a fair chance to do so. To that end, we have instituted a Mass Reservation process for attendance. Click here for more information on the reservation process.

Volunteers Welcome
We are still in need of volunteers to assist with the re-opening procedures as we move ahead. If you would be willing to assist us in greeting/welcoming, set-up and/or clean-up, please contact David Mika in the parish office (847-824-5049 or dmika@stemily.org).

Private Prayer
The Church is open for private prayer from 7:30am to 8:15am Monday through Saturday.

Reconciliation
The Sacrament of Reconciliation is offered from 3:30pm to 4:30pm on Saturdays.

Note:

  • Face masks or coverings must be worn at all times in the Church.
  • If you are not feeling well, please stay home!
  • Entry is through the front vestibule doors only.
