Stay Safe!
Even though we are not having inside activities there are many times when people are at church - office work, cleaning, garden prep, counting, practicing music, doing the Zoom prep and service.... It's easy to let our guard down - remember to wear our masks, clean off surfaces, and wash our hands. There's hand sanitizer throughout the building - remember to use it! Masks are available if you don't have one. Thank you!
St. Paul's gardens and gardeners will be rededicated this Sunday, April 25th, after each service. 

The vegetable garden to the east of the church provides fresh vegetables and herbs to several food pantries during the summer months. The flower garden to west of the church provides fresh flowers for the altar and beautifies the entry ways.

Both gardens provide a rewarding outside activity for those who enjoy working with the soil and bringing God's bounty to fruition. If you would like to join our gardeners, please contact the parish office. 
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)

Dear Members and Friends of the Diocese of Chicago: Last year I told one of my priest friends, “Make sure you give your congregation hope in your Easter message. Surely we won’t be in this lockdown next Easter!” Well, COVID restrictions have eased somewhat, yet we still find ourselves this Easter in the grips of the pandemic. In fact, we are now experiencing an uptick in cases and hospitalizations. Planning for weddings, funerals, graduations, and, dare I say, a bishop’s consecration are hampered by strict guidelines regulating the number of people who can gather, mandates against congregational singing, and the protocols of interpersonal connections. This Easter many of us are Zoomed-out, stressed out, or just plain tired. We have been living under COVID restrictions for over a year now, and we are ready to see our friends in person, hug our relatives, and go wherever our hearts desire.

Nevertheless, this Easter I still have a “Holy Hope.”
