St. James Mass Reservations

Please follow these instructions to make our worship safe, smooth, and joyful.

A seating chart for our pews is below. The red pews will remain vacant due to social distancing guidelines. If the mass you would like to attend a mass that is filled, please consider (1) attending a different mass that weekend; (2) attending a daily mass that week; or (3) adding your name to the Weekend Mass Waiting List.

Should you need to cancel your reservation please use the link in your confirmation email. By doing so, you open a pew for another family to attend mass!

Reminder: dispensation from Sunday mass and Holy Days of Obligation remains in place. We will continue to livestream daily mass Monday-Saturday at 7:30am, Contemporary Mass Saturday at 5pm, and Traditional Mass Sunday at 8:30am.For any questions or concerns, please email 

Thank you for your patience as we look for ways to allow more parishioners to attend Mass together.  After much discussion, we have decided to not implement the new Mass reservation system with individual registrants. We will continue to use the current system and will open more pews for reservation. Please remember to observe proper social distancing at all times in the church, continue to wear a mask, and use hand sanitizer upon entering and at communion. Any concerns or questions may be directed to the Parish Office at Thank you for your patience as we continue to encourage all of our parishioners to come to Mass!

Our Monday – Friday, 7:30am and 12:00pm, and Saturday, 7:30am daily masses no longer require a reservation on our website. Fr. Matt wants you to “just come” and join us. If you have any questions, please call the front desk: 224-345-7200

Mass sign-ups will be posted by 4:00pm every Monday.

Waiting List
For families that missed reserving a pew for this weekend’s Sunday masses, you’ll have the opportunity to indicate which mass you’d like to attend the following weekend. Putting your name on the list does NOT guarantee a spot. You will receive a confirmation email if you were added to that mass. The waiting list goes live at 10am on Fridays and closes at 12pm on Mondays.
