Welcome, and thank you for visiting St. Peter the Apostle Catholic Church online. We hope that our Web site highlights the wide variety of worship, fellowship and service opportunities available. Please feel free to read more about our parish on this site, or come in for a visit. We would love to greet you and share with you our love for Jesus Christ.

Mass Sign-up and UPDATED Guidelines for Mass Attendance

Moving forward in our return to worshiping in our physical space, a few modifications are being implemented to the current Mass attendance process. Based on direction from Bishop Pates and diocesan guidelines, advance sign-up for mass attendance will begin with this weekend.


Advance registration offers benefits such as assuring that the mass you choose to attend is not over capacity, as well as providing easier check-in and accurate record-keeping (registration lists are destroyed after 14 days).


Those with internet access are asked to sign up by clicking on the link below. Please sign up for an available mass time and indicate the number of family members in your group. With our current capacity of 150 attendees, the online sign-up will provide 130 slots, allowing 20 slots for those who are unable to sign-up online.

Anyone unable to register on-line is asked to call the Parish Center at 630-773-1272 (x200) to make a request. If you are unable to register online, or the sign-up closes before you have a chance to register, please know that you are still welcome to come to church for any of the mass times and sign in at the door. Staff and volunteers are doing their best to accommodate everyone and do not intend to turn away anyone as long as there is ample space


Sign-up will be open Sunday through Saturday for the upcoming week/weekend, and you are able to sign up for the entire week at one time. Walk-ins are welcome, if you are unable to register on line. Please note:

  • Weekend sign-up will close at noon on Saturday

  • Daily mass sign-up will close at 8:00 pm the night before the respective mass

Please do not hesitate to call the Parish Center at 630-773-1272 (ext. 200) if you need any assistance.

Weekly Tuesday Rosary

Every Tuesday at 7:00 pm (Rosary begins at 7:15pm)

Join the Rosary group as they gather outside near the Blessed Virgin Mary statue to pray the Rosary every Tuesday evening. Plan to arrive at 7:00pm to allow sufficient time to set up and begin praying at 7:15pm. If you will need to sit, please bring your own chair.

Attendees are invited to lead one of the decades if comfortable and moved to do so. Bring your Rosary, your personal intentions and your voice. Invite friends and be a part of this beautiful and powerful gift of prayer.


In the event of inclement weather, the group will gather in the church. Please visit the parish website to review Guidelines to be observed. Assistance with cleaning will also be needed once concluded.

The Tuesday Evening Rosary booklet will be available to follow along on screen during the session; however, if you would like to print a copy, you can download the booklet HERE.

During these trying and difficult times, everyone is encouraged to continue praying the Rosary daily for personal intentions and comfort, as well for a resolution and end to the Coronavirus pandemic currently affecting the world.

The Rosary is a beautiful and powerful gift of prayer with which our Catholic faith has been blessed.
