  • SAVE THE DATE! Sunday, June 27

    Join the communities of Mater Christi, St. Hugh, and St. Mary on June 27th to celebrate the Unification of our newly formed parish, St. Paul VI.

    Beginning at 10:30am on Sunday, June 27, the Unification Mass will be held at St. Hugh Church, 7939 West 43rd Street in Lyons, with Bishop Manz. Following the Mass at St. Hugh, we will process to the Mater Christi campus and dedicate the former school building at 2400 S. 10th Avenue, in North Riverside at approximately 1:00pm as the St. Hugh Faith Formation Center. The procession will continue to St. Mary, for the dedication of the Bishop Timothy J. Lyne Pastoral Center at 40 E. Burlington Street at approximately 2:00pm. A reception will follow immediately with light refreshments.

    Advance sign-up is required for the Unification Mass at St. Hugh and church seating is prioritized to St. Hugh parishioners. Seating will also be available in Keating Hall for a livestream option with Communion distribution if church capacity is exceeded. To sign up or for more information in regards to the Unification Mass at St. Hugh, please visit their website, www.sthughlyons.org, or call their parish office at (708) 447-3108. Please note that masks are required to be worn by all in attendance at the Mass.

    More information will be shared in future editions of our parish bulletins, parish websites, and our parish Facebook pages as Archdiocesan capacity and COVID mitigation regulations are subject to change. Volunteers are always appreciated to assist during the Unification activities. If you are interested in donating any of your time in any capacity, please contact Carole Eipers via email at ceipers@stmaryriverside.org.

    We look forward to unifying as one and hope to see everyone on Unification Day, June 27!
