Reopening Update (Public Masses)

Reopening Update for St. Thomas the Apostle Church

We are approved to resume public Masses, which will be Saturdays at 4 pm and Sundays at 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. Given the current restrictions on attendance (up to 20% capacity of our church), we are using Signup Genius, an online tool that allows you to reserve space for you and those in your household for Mass:

You can join us also for Daily Mass in-person, Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. (Main church, sign-up at the door).

It is important that you reference the Parishioner Reopening Guide so that you are aware of the precautionary measures in place for your safety and all those in our St. Thomas the Apostle family.

You will see that there are some expectations of everyone prior to arriving for Mass, during our celebration and upon exiting the church. To help ensure that everything runs as smoothly and peacefully as possible, please review the guide and contact us with any questions ahead of time at 773-324-2626. A link to the guide is

For those who are not able to return to Mass or are not yet comfortable joining us in person, be assured of our prayers for you. We are one family in faith and no matter how long it takes until you are able to worship in person with us, we hope that you will connect with us in other ways by worshiping with us weekdays online at STA Facebook page at (Monday-Saturday at 8 a.m.; Sunday – at 8 a.m.)
