Join Us for a Parade to Celebrate Fr. David’s 36th Anniversary of Ordination on Tuesday, June 2nd at 5:30 P.M.

All are invited to join us as we wish Fr. David a happy 36th Anniversary of Ordination to the Priesthood on Tuesday, June 2nd at 5:30 P.M. In the interest of creating a safe pattern of traffic, we will line up our procession of cars at Parkview School on Park Blvd. beginning at 5:20 P.M. The parade of cars will drive slowly past the parish rectory, where Fr. David will be standing in his driveway on Prince Edward Road.

We ask that everyone please remain in your cars, but take a moment to honk your horn as you pass by and express your gratitude to Fr. David for his ministry to our parish.

If you aren’t able to join us, but wish to express your gratitude to Fr. David for his ministry, well wishes may be emailed to or mailed to him at St. James the Apostle Parish, 480 S. Park Blvd., Glen Ellyn, IL 60137.

Join Pope Francis in Praying the Rosary Saturday at 10:30 A.M. CST

Pope Francis is once again urging all of humanity to pray together for divine help during the coronavirus pandemic.

On Saturday at 5:30 P.M. Rome time the Pope will lead the recitation of the Rosary from the Lourdes Grotto in the Vatican Gardens.

The Decades of the Rosary will be recited by men and women representing the various categories of people who have been particularly affected by Covid-19.

These include a doctor and a nurse; someone who recovered from the illness and someone who lost a loved-one to it; a priest, a hospital chaplain, and a nun who is a nurse. Other participants include a pharmacist, a doctor, and a journalist; an Italian Civil Protection volunteer; and, a young family who welcomed a baby into the world during the pandemic.

As the Marian month of May draws to a close, Pope Francis is bringing the trials and tribulations of people around the world to the feet of Mary.

The event will be broadcast live throughout the world on a host of Vatican channels, with English-language commentary provided.
