Reopening Information


I was glad when they said to me, ‘Let us go into the house of the Lord’…
– Psalm 122:1

It is with great joy that we announce to you the reopening of our beloved Annunciation Cathedral to her parishioners. While we are still limited in the number of people that may attend, we are excited to welcome you, the faithful, back home.

In order to attend services, you must sign in at the Pagari when entering the Cathedral in order for us to meet the contact tracing requirements set forth by the Metropolis of Chicago and government heath authorities.

To attend, stewards must abide by the CDC’s Social Distancing Standards and any other safety directives of the Metropolis of Chicago, such as:

  • All attendees must wear a face mask over their mouth and nose.
  • Upon entering and before receiving Holy Communion, the faithful are required to sanitize their hands at the provided hand sanitizer stations.
  • Stewards will leave immediately after the service is concluded.
  • The faithful may continue to honor the icons and other sacred objects by a reverent bow and making the sign of the Cross in lieu of kissing.
  • The faithful should refrain from shaking hands or kissing others.
  • At all times, the faithful must maintain social distancing from one another, with the exceptions of families living together.


If stewards are in a high risk category as defined by the CDC, have symptoms such as a temperature over 100 degrees Fahrenheit, chills, muscle aches/pains, cough/runny nose, sore throat and recent loss of taste/smell or have had exposure to someone with symptoms, please remain home and enjoy the online services, which will still be made available via our YouTube and Facebook pages, until you can safely return to Church.

Please note that only the Cathedral sanctuary will be open. Access to the Bessie Miller Hall, classrooms, offices or any storage closets throughout the entire building is prohibited until further notice. Once you are at church and in your pew, we ask that you limit your need to move about the church proper at all times. There is to be no gatherings of any size at anytime in the Cathedral or on the Cathedral property before, during or after services by parishioners.

The members of our Parish Reopening Committee and the Parish Council will be available to assist and give direction. It is imperative that you follow the instructions of the Parish Council at all times. If at any point, direction is not followed, you will be asked to leave and will not be permitted to attend another service. We ask that you be patient and supportive with one another as we continue to manage the necessary changes in our procedures. Should it be deemed necessary, changes to the guidelines that have been established for everyone’s safety will be considered.

Please contact the Cathedral office with any questions.
