Reopening Reflection 

From Fr. Anthony Vaccaro: As many of you have heard, Chicago has entered into Phase 3 of its reopening schedule as the COVID 19 infection rate seems to be declining or at least, it has plateaued. Included in Phase 3 is the provision for houses of worship to open their doors in order to resume limited services. Mayor Lightfoot has stipulated that services can take place with up to 50 people in attendance while wearing masks and taking proper precautions.
