Religious Formation Registration Form


Father Bob Duda, Pastor

 

 

 


Look at what's happening at Christ the Servant!

 


Sunday Liturgy

Christ the Servant continues to post Sunday mass by Fr. Bob on facebook and YouTube (@christtheservant) at about 9 am Sunday. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCl4CVB_eUB4ts51DxKyoiag The plan is to continue providing a Mass each week as long as necessary. The Mass will be posted at 9:00 am Sunday, and remain available during the rest of the week.

 


Register for Masses

As Christ the Servant re-opens for masses, attendance will be limitted so that state guidelines are adhered to. Please use the automated registration system at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/christ-the-servant-weekend-masses-in-august-only-tickets-114796182472. People who do not have access to a computer can register by calling the church office at 630-910-0770 or emailing ctsoffice@ctswoodridge.org. When registering, please make sure to include your family name, number of people that will be attending, and which mass (date and time) you would like to attend.

Registration for daily and weekend masses is now available.

 


Radio Broadcast of Mass

Even with the precautions being taken at mass, you may still feel it best to participate by listening to mass while being in your car. When mass is going on, you can listen to the audio on 88.3 FM. We found that the reception is best on the northern end of the original parking lot. (That's the side of the building the transmitter is on.) A communion minister will come outside the entrance doors for radio listeners to come receive communion. You must still observe use of face masks and social distancing. Hand sanitizer will be available for your use as well. See page 4 in the bulletin for more details.

 


Registration for Religious Formation

It is time to start registering for the 2020-2021 Religious Formation classes! Christ the Servant has made plans to bring in a new religious curriculum, Credible Catholic, which is a 7 module program. See page 4 in the bulletin for more details.

Please complete and submit your registration forms (all 4 pages) as soon as possible to ensure your child’s space. Also, please review the 2020- 2021 Religious Formation Handbook (available on the Religious Formation page - link in left side menu, or hardcopy outside RF office) for policies and procedures. Classes will begin on September 16. The registration form is available by clicking "Religious Formation Registration Form" on the left menu bar.

Huge thank you

A HUGE thank you to all who are able to continue to support the parish financially during this difficult time! If your finances allow, please continue your alms giving as most parish costs are ongoing.

Your financial support is still needed for us to be able to meet the financial commitments of the parish. We still need to pay the mortgage, utilities, and payroll. We’ve adjusted the thermostat to use less electricity and gas, and salaried employees (diocese-wide) have taken a 1/3 reduction in salary for at least the month of April. Thank you to the many people who are continuing making contributions to the parish, either by mailing in your gifts or contributing online. To contribute online, click on the black and yellow “Donation” button near the upper right of the home page.
God will see us through this time, together.
