Today, we received updated Covid-19 guidance from the Diocese of Joliet for Mass and other parish activities. You may read them here.
Some highlights of these new guidelines as it relates to Mass are as follows:
Mask wearing is optional.
There is a Social distance seating area with masks to the right of the altar.
We will continue with a “wave” of peace.
Those desiring Communion on the tongue should come forward and Eucharistic Ministers will sanitize their hands afterwards.
In all these things, let us continue to be patient and kind with everyone around us. Basically, may Jesus be happy with our actions and our thoughts.
A reminder that anyone who may not be comfortable with in-person Mass attendance may remain in their cars at our parking lot where you can listen to Mass being celebrated in the church and also receive Communion from Eucharistic Ministers. We have arranged our sound system so that you can listen live to Mass on your car radio tuned to St. Mary’s channel located on your FM dial at 105.7
