RENEW MY CHURCH UPDATES - NEW PARISH

> READ NEW PARISH DECREE - RMC (PDF)

We began a new era for our parish with the inclusion of Our Lady of the Ridge beginning on July 1st. We are extremely optimistic about the future of this ‘new reality'. We have officially begun the union of our parishes from two entities into one. Some beginning goals are:

  • The combination of the website and bulletin - Work is advancing toward this goal. Most bulletin content is, now the same.
  • The combination of budget - Joe Dillon, representatives from the Archdiocese, and Father Mark met to begin this process.
  • And updating of the Mass schedule:
    • Beginning on Sunday, September 5 at Our Lady of the Ridge
      The Weekend Mass schedule will be:
      Saturday at 5 pm and Sunday to 9 am and 11 am.
    • Beginning on Sunday, September 25 at St. Linus
      The Weekend Mass schedule will be:
      Saturday at 4 pm and Sunday at 8 am and 10 am.
      The 12 Noon Mass at St. Linus will again be discontinued for the foreseeable future. Mass Intentions that have been scheduled for the 12 Noon Mass will be moved to the 10 AM Mass.
  • Offertory Envelopes - Until the time when we combine the parish database from Our Lady of the Ridge and St. Linus, you can use your regular offertory envelopes at either church. Checks can be made payable to either Our Lady of the Ridge (OLOR) or St. Linus (STL) or both (OLOR-STL) no matter which offertory envelope is used. Your contribution will be recorded on your regular parish database account. Thank you for your continued financial support.

Hopefully, these adjustments will accommodate the majority of people. There are obviously more goals than these, but that gets us started. Continue to pray for our recognition of the Holy Spirit ‘shepherding’ the Church.


CHURCH OFFERTORY SUPPORT DURING PANDEMIC - You can use our Church Online Giving - GiveCentral to submit your contributions. Also, The Archdiocese has created an online giving page to support parishes during this time. Donors are able to make an online donation at www.archchicago.org/offertory and designate to OUR Parish Church - ST. LINUS. You may also place your envelopes in the mail slot of the door of the Parish Office.

It is critically important that our parishes and pastors receive the offertory support they need to remain operational and sustainable despite the suspension of weekly Masses. The Archdiocese has developed a universal online offertory page where the faithful can make an offertory donation to any parish in the Archdiocese. These donations will assist the parishes with ongoing expenses related to ministry, maintenance, staff and other pressing needs, that depend on regular offertory support from parishioners. I encourage you to contribute online to your parish at or above your usual offertory amount. Many of our parishes are suffering significant financial hardship during this challenging time. Your online support will make a critical difference.

Additionally, as we are sensitive to the financial hardship suffered by many in recent days, we have also launched a Coronavirus Emergency Fund. This fund will support members of our community who have been negatively affected by the pandemic. For example, the fund will support parents of Catholic school students who might struggle with tuition payments because of unexpected job loss, ministries providing the needy with sustenance or parish communities deeply harmed by the pandemic. Our neighbors down the street and across the Archdiocese need our support at this critical moment. Your donation can help provide them with that support.

Please visit www.archchicago.org/coronavirus/donate to support parish offertory, the Coronavirus Emergency Fund or both as your means allow. Your generosity is needed now more than ever. Our Archdiocese community has always come together to support one another during times of need, and I ask you to do so again. Please continue to pray for each other, as I continue to pray for you.

ARCHDIOCSEAN RESOURCES - Please pray for each other, and for all those affected by this virus. Check this website homepage and the Archdiocesan website www.archchicago.org/coronavirus for more information and updates.

May God bless you and your families and Thank You for your understanding!

Thank you visiting the St. Linus Church Website.
