E-Bulletin - April 5, 2021
May the joy of Christ's Resurrection reign ever in your heart! It is good to feel the sense of hope that comes with signing "Alleluia" in church and feeling the warmth of the sun as the season change. Flowers are coming out and it feels good to be alive!
But, even as more people are vaccinated and we feel the increased ability to celebrate,
it is important
that everyone look out for each other by continued vigilance of pandemic safety protocols.
We are reminded that the Lake View neighborhood saw one of the largest increases in COVID infections in the city of Chicago last week. It is an act of charity aimed at the benefit of others to continue to wear a mask, limit in-person interactions, keep social distance, and to wash your hands. Let us keep helping each other out and we'll get through this!
If you missed in-person Mass at Saint Andrew this past Sunday, know that our limitations on attendance were created out a spirit of keeping everyone safe. Also know that Easter isn't over! We'd love to welcome you into the church during the Easter Season which continues for the next 7 weeks! You didn't miss the Resurrection. It is relived in the church every Sunday!

Join the Safety Team
Our Safety Team helps to ensure that public Masses are safeguarded by following the Archdiocesan pandemic protocols including, set-up, greeting/ushering, and clean up. Please consider volunteering for this important ministry, especially if you have already had the chance to be vaccinated. Your immunity can be a service to allow access for others to attend Mass safely. Contact
to express interest.
Altar Servers Will Return Soon
As the Archdiocese provides permission
(under the guidance of health officials)
for certain activities and functions to be restored to our liturgical celebrations, we anticipate in the weeks and months ahead to return having youth to serve at the altar during Mass. The restoration of the ministry of altar servers will start with experienced altar servers first and then new servers in the fourth grade or older will be included as they become trained. Please contact
to express interest for your child to participate in this ministry.
