Bishop Jenky has given permission for public Mass to resume.  This is wonderful news but there will be some changes.  Listed below are those things we will observe as we reopen our worship space.

2.  When entering the church please follow the guidance of           the Ushers/Greeters. You may enter thru the main aisle           only.

         *seating will only be allowed in "open"  pews.  Limit of 5            people per pew, families may sit together.

3.  As you enter the Church we ask you to please sanitize               your hands.  The Ushers will have sanitizer available and       will put the sanitizer on your hands for you if you need          them to that that.

4.  Face masks will be available from the Ushers, or you may wear  your own. Please do not judge if someone does not choose to wear a mask.  Remember in all things charity.

5.  Per guidelines issued by Peoria,  there will be no Offertory Procession (there will be a collection take up by the Ushers), no Sign of Peace exchange, and no Communion from the Cup.

6.  Please follow directions given at the time for                        Communion.  Please extend your hand for communion, not        on the tongue.
