Additional Details:

  • Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Holy Fire 2021 will not take place at a single location but instead feature virtual content to be streamed at multiple parish and school sites across the Archdiocese of Chicago.
  • Our live emcee will guide participants throughout the day to ensure an engaging experience with built-in breaks.
  • While a virtual streaming option will be available for the concluding Mass, participating sites will also have the option of celebrating Mass locally on site (prevailing public health guidance permitting). If you intend to celebrate Mass at your parish or school, it is recommended that you reserve the worship space and a celebrant as soon as possible.
