Pastor’s Message

WELCOME To Old St. Mary’s Church, Chicago

as we progress from pandemic to renewal.

We hope you will come and join us.

The ability to be open without so many restrictions is a great blessing.  We do follow the guidance of the Archdiocese of Chicago. Therefore, masks are required for everyone over the age of 2 in our church, school, and parish center.

We know that many of you are still afraid, cautious and unvaccinated, but wherever you are on the Covid-19 spectrum, you are welcome here.

On our website, you will see many activities and offerings you can connect with – please do so. You can also download our parish app in the App store or Google Play store.  Search for it under the name OSM Parish.

With the app, you will find the ability to stream our Masses, view recorded Masses, get daily Mass readings, see our bulletin and weekly newsletter, tap into Busted Halo broadcasts as well as a myriad of other items.

We hope to meet and see you in person, but if not, please know that the dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holydays of Obligation is still in effect.

Wishing you God’s constant blessing in your life and the lives of those you hold dear.

Fr. Brad Schoeberle, CSP
