The world has changed unimaginably since the beginning of Great Lent. As we continue to adjust our lives to the rapidly changing times, my daily prayers continue to be with you, the faithful of our Holy Metropolis.
We are in the midst of an unprecedented time. Since I was born, we have seen nothing like the breadth and scale of our nation’s, and indeed the world’s response to the Covid-19 Coronavirus. Only people who lived through WWII have seen such a mobilization of resources to achieve a common goal that protects the health and welfare of people across the globe.

Saints Peter and Paul parish will follow the advice provided by the Archdiocese of America and Metropolis of Chicago.

We will continue to follow common sense and compassion to minimize the potential impact of the pandemic in our lives.
Thanks to everyone who came out and helped children in need of books build their libraries and support literacy! We had such a great time with you all at Bernie's Book Bank last Saturday.
