Our parish office will resume our summer hours beginning Monday June 1st. We will be open 8am-4pm Monday through Thursday and 8am-12pm on Fridays.
We will also once again be offering Confession in our church! Confession will be available Monday thru Friday from 6:30-6:45am and on Saturdays from 4-5pm. Enter through the front doors of the church. You must wear your mask and practice proper social distancing in both the parish office and the church.
We will be having Mass in the Church!
Monday thru Friday at 7:00am.
Saturday at 5:30pm
Sunday at 8:00am, 10:00am and 4:00pm
Live Stream Mass in the Great Hall with Communion on Sundays at 10:00am and 4:00pm
Live Stream Mass will still be available our Facebook page for those who remain home.
Remember you also have the opportunity to spend time with Jesus “face to face” on the patio outside the parish center Library. The patio has four chairs placed six feet apart for those who would like to come and spend time in a quiet outdoor setting with the Lord. The patio is accessible by entering the gates at either end of the parish garden. Out of respect for one another, we ask that you wear a mask if others are present with you.
The Reopen Our Church Committee will continue to develop plans to reopen the church that will be accomplished in stages across many weeks. They will be following the directives of the Diocese of Peoria. If you would like to volunteer for any of the three subcommittees –Setup, Greeting, and Cleaning– please email the parish office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have enough supplies to safely reopen, however, as more and more places get back to business, those supplies might become scarce. If you would like to donate any or all of the following supplies to the church, please drop them off in the vestibule of the parish center during office hours.Disposable Masks
Disinfectant Spray (such as Lysol or an EPA approved disinfectant)
More volunteers are needed and welcome. If you are interested in serving on one of The Reopen Our Church Committees, please contact the parish office by phone at (217) 352-8748 or email at email@example.com. Please provide your name, phone number, email address, along with a committee preference and mass time preference. Committees include: Set Up, Clean Up and Greeters/Ushers.
