All masses, parish and school events are cancelled. Per instruction from the Archdiocese of Chicago, all Holy Week and Easter Sunday Masses and events must also be cancelled.
The Archdiocese of Chicago has also required all churches, chapels and parish offices to close from 5pm March 21 through April 7, due to the State of Illinois 'stay at home' order. MHR Church will no longer be open for private prayer or Saturday reconciliation during that period. The .Adoration Chapel is also closed. Any weddings and funerals planned during that period will be postponed until the 'stay at home' order is lifted.

Please consider making electronic donations to Most Holy Redeemer in place of your weekly donations given at mass. You can also mail your contributions to the rectory office, 9525 S. Lawndale Ave., Evergreen Park, IL, 60805.
The rectory office is closed. Parish staff are working remotely and can still be reached by email or phone. We will be monitoring the parish voicemail remotely.
Obviously, all Catholics in the Archdiocese have been given a dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass. All are reminded of the following preventive measures that we all should be following:
