Review this Information before attending Mass in Church
  • Pre-registration is required to attend Mass in the Church on Saturday & Sunday. Due to increasing rates of infection in our area, WE CAN NO LONGER ACCEPT WALK-INS so PLEASE REGISTER.  
    • Register online here by 3:00 pm on Saturday.
    • To call to register, call the Parish Center at 708-434-1521 with your name, date of Mass, time of Mass, & number of attendees in your group. Call by 3:00 PM on Fridays.
Arrive at least 15 minutes before Mass to be checked in and seated by the greeters. A mask is required. A volunteer will distribute hand sanitizer upon entering the church and before receiving the Eucharist. While walking and sitting keep 6' distance from non-family members. Please do not attend Mass if someone in your household does not feel well. View this flyer from the Archdiocese on what to expect.

Confessions will be available on Saturday from 4:00 pm-4:45 pm in the Choir Room (former cry room)


Volunteer at Mass this weekend!

You can help prepare the church for mass, check people in as they arrive, help seat people in the pews or help with clean up. We have so many people willing to help out but we know that summer is a busy time so new volunteers continue to be needed.


To sign up to volunteer, please fill out this online sign up form. If you are new, please sign up for a spot on the sign up form and also email Diane Lawrence at d.moriarty@ascensionoakpark.com.

Thank you to our Parish Reopening Leadership Team!
