Archdiocese of Chicago holds Sunday Mass at Holy Name Cathedral

CHICAGO (WLS) – The Archdiocese of Chicago broadcasts Sunday Mass from Church of the Holy Name on ABC7.

Mass broadcast on TV at 9:30 a.m. Sunday, at abc7chi and in the ABC 7 Chicago app.

The move comes after both the Archdiocese of Chicago and the Diocese of Joliet announced they would be suspending all public services because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Some Masses have resumed, but in limited numbers.

New Guidelines for “Be Safe. Place of Worship” allows up to 50 people per room or 25% occupancy at houses of worship in Chicago, as long as the required social distancing can be maintained, according to a release from Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s office.

Places of worship will also be required to provide cleaning stations, regularly disinfect facilities and ensure people wear face coverings, according to the release.

The Chicago Department of Public Health recommends that the elderly or those with underlying health conditions continue to practice their faith at home.

“In these difficult times, it is especially important that the faithful have access to the grace and comfort of Mass,” said Bishop Ron Hicks, Vicar General of the Archdiocese of Chicago.

Hicks said the church doesn’t want to keep people praying in the faith.
