Pastor’s Message Sixth Sunday of Easter May 9th, 2021

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

I am inviting you to join us on Sunday, May 9, as we celebrate the Mass of the Sixth Sunday of Easter and honor all mothers on Mother’s Day.  The Mass will be celebrated at 10:15 a.m.   You may participate in-person or via Zoom or Facebook Live.
​You may participate via the livestream on the Parish’s Facebook Page, St. Katharine Drexel Parish of Chicago, by “clicking” on this link:  ​
For those who do not have internet access, you may dial the following telephone number using Free Conference Call.  The dial-in number is 1 (978) 990-5000.  The access code is 883420.
Please share this information with your families, friends and co-workers.  We welcome their participation in our liturgy!

As a reminder:

You may register for in-person worship on the Sign-up Genius link,, or you may call the parish office.  There are only 50 seats available in the church due to social distancing, so registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Since it is Mother’s Day, the 50-person limit on Mass attendance will be “waived” so that people may be able to worship with their mothers.

Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers!  Have a great weekend!

Fr. Paul, O.P.
