Updated Guidelines
Masks Required at all Indoor Gatherings

SUNDAYS at 7:30AM, 9AM, 10:30AM

Updated Guidelines from the Rockford Diocese — In a letter from Bishop Malloy on May 26, 2021 some of the most important mentioned issues quoted here;

  • Churches and meeting spaces should be sanitized regularly. Hand sanitizer should remain readily available for those who wish to utilize it. Local county health department guidelines should continue to be observed.
  • Registration is no longer required for Mass attendance. If attendance at a non-sacramental meeting or gathering is anticipated to exceed 60% capacity of the gathering space, registration should be required, to ensure attendance is capped at 60%.
  • Holy Communion will remain under one species for the faithful. Vessels no longer need to remain covered at all times. Eucharistic Ministers may bring Holy Communion to hospitals, the homebound, or those in care facilities. Family members may take Holy Communion to their family and friends at the discretion of the pastor.
  • Continue to refrain from having altar servers. Choirs are now permitted. Musicians, including those who play brass and woodwind instruments, are permitted. Cantors are permitted. The offertory procession of gifts may resume.
  • Hymnals, Bibles, missals, prayer cards, etc. in the pews may resume. Bulletins may now be distributed. Collection baskets that are passed should not be used yet. Continue to refrain from the Sign of Peace. Holy Water fonts should not be used yet.
