“We continue to gather as a community and welcome the opportunity to pray for the end to violence and continued to push for peace,” said Fr. Don Nevins, pastor of St. Agnes of Bohemia Parish. “This is also an opportunity to let people know we are open for business and are welcoming people back to Mass after the pandemic,” Fr. Nevins added.

Tuesday, July 20 – on 2827 S. Trumbull.
Thursday, July 22 – on 2649 S. Springfield.

The outdoor Masses will be celebrated in the middle of the street with the streets on either end temporarily blocked from the passage of cars. Participants are invited to bring their own folding chairs.
St. Agnes is host to the Prince of Peace Eucharistic Adoration Chapel where parishioners pray and worship throughout the day and often the night for peace and the end of violence in the world. Eucharistic adoration is the adoration of Jesus Christ present in the Holy Eucharist.
