Special Mass

Please call St. Peter's Church to reserve a space to attend this Mass 312-372-5111.

On Friday, July 24 our Franciscan brother, Fr. Ken Capalbo, OFM, died at Northwestern Hospital. Fr. Ken had been a resident here at St. Peter's Friary for a number of years, helping with Masses, confessions, mezzanine duty, etc. Fr. Ken spent many years teaching history at Quincy University. He served the friars of Sacred Heart Province as vicar-Provincial. After serving as vicar, Fr. Ken received permission to go to Vietnam and teach the Franciscan students there English and Church history. He was a dedicated friar and will be missed by all of the friars here at St. Peter's and in the Province. We offer our prayers and sympathy to his brother, Richard and to all who mourn his passing. We pray that God will welcome his faithful servant, Fr. Ken, to the joys of heaven.

Greetings from the rooftop courtyard at St. Peter’s Church in the Loop!  Our doors may be closed, but our hearts remain open to the Word of God and to your prayers.  We are blessed to be in reasonably good health and are coping with the shelter-in-place provisions much like many families are – movies, game nights, shared meals, etc.  With you, we mourn the souls lost to this dreadful virus and pray for those who currently battle it.  And, like you, we are eternally grateful to the men and women who risk their lives treating the afflicted, as well as those working to provide us all with essential services. 

Please know that the friars are praying for you all daily and eagerly look forward to the day when we can be together in person once again to share in the sacraments, a few laughs, and perhaps a tear or two.  May God’s grace touch us through all of these in our fragile, troubled world.

Together in Christ – peace, health, and all good to you,

The Friars of St. Peter’s Church
