GREETINGS FROM THE PASTOR

GREETINGS FROM THE PASTOR

I know it is difficult to believe, but summer is coming to an end, and extraordinary things are happening here at Old St. Mary’s in the South Loop.

We recently celebrated our parish feast day – the Solemnity of the Assumption of Mary. When we began as a parish Old St. Mary’s was known as St. Mary of the Assumption. It was only after the great Chicago Fire of 1871, that Old St. Mary’s rose from the ashes, and has continued to spark faith in believers ever since.

If art is the expression of the living faith among believers, then it is no surprise that our parish has inspired a new image for Mary that was blessed on our feast day. I hope when you have the chance to drop by our Church, you will come and look at the “Assumption of Mary” by Chloe McEldowney that was commissioned by our Pastoral Council. You probably see it here on our website?

We also celebrate our kids coming back to school. The summer is always made longer when we don’t see the kids’ faces, but now they are back, and the parish is up to full steam this week.

If you are in the neighborhood next Sunday, August 26, join us for our parish picnic, immediately following the 11a.m. Sunday Mass.

Wishing you blessings on your end of August, the beginning of September and the extraordinary things that are part of your lives!

Fr. Brad
