UPDATE ON LIVESTREAMING MASSES...
Dear Parish Family,
I am quite excited to see so many more parishioners lately coming back for
Holy Mass – the greatest prayer on earth. I hope to welcome all of you home again this Christmas! Please know that we continue to practice safety precautions, requiring wearing masks and sanitizing hands at each Mass at St. Peter the Apostle Parish.
Many parishioners have now returned to in-person Mass, and very few regularly watch our live-stream Masses. Therefore, effective immediately the parish will no longer live-stream Masses. Please know that, whether you attend Mass or are unable to join us in person, each of you will continue to be held in my prayers and intentions at all my Christmas Masses this season. For those who continue to remain at home and are unable come to Mass for Christmas and beyond, live-streamed Masses can be viewed each day on EWTN and Catholic TV.
If you are homebound and would like to receive the Eucharist, please contact Deacon Fred at the parish center so that a regular visit can be arranged. If you are in need of the Sacraments of Reconciliation or the Anointing of the Sick, please call my extension.
May Jesus Christ bring his eternal love and peace to you and your families at Christmas and bless you in the New Year of 2022. You will all have a very special remembrance in the celebration of the Mass on Christmas Day.
In Christ our Lord,
Guidelines for Mass Attendance and Parish Activities
(as of October 6, 2021)
The progress of the COVID‑19 pandemic in Illinois remains unpredictable. The Diocese of Joliet continues to consult with public health, education, and civil authorities and modify requirements as conditions, mandates, and guidance change. We are committed to providing an integrated, safe, responsible, and balanced perspective. Faithful citizenship is key. We expect individuals to take personal responsibility for the common good, and their own safety. Remember that taking every precaution to reduce the spread of the virus is an act of charity toward others in Christ, particularly toward the sick, the elderly, and those too young to receive vaccine protection.
The Diocese of Joliet will follow Illinois public health guidelines and offers. Click on the link below for details for church services and activities effective October 6, 2021:
NOTE: MASS SIGN-UP IS NO LONGER NECESSARY. Parishioners are invited to Mass without registration or seating restrictions. WEARING A MASK is REQUIRED for everyone – vaccinated or not – while INSIDE the church and parish facilities.
For those who prefer to adhere to distancing protocols, "Safe Seating" is provided at ALL masses. Please use the front left (west) section of the Church if you wish to maintain social distancing at mass. Alternate-row seating is in place; masks and hand sanitizer are encouraged.
Click HERE to see a chart of the "safe seating" section.
