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.

1.  Please feel free to return ONLY if you are well.

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 do 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.


We are now livestreaming our weekend Mass! It will be posted to Facebook so anyone who wishes to participate in our Weekend Mass will have access to the celebration held at St. John's!




We are in need of additional Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion and Lectors.  This is an opportunity to serve the people of God.  The sharing of our skills and talents with others is an important part of being a Christian.  There will be a training meeting at the end of April or May.  Please contact Silvia Comfort to sign up.

The Altar and Rosary Society will be meeting on Thursday, April 15 th at 7pm in the Parish Hall.  Please plan to attend as we will be discussing plans for the coming year.
