As of March 19, 2020 by mandate of Bishop Richard Pates, Apostolic Administrator of the Diocese of Joliet

All church services (Sunday Mass, daily Mass, Stations of the Cross, etc.) are cancelled until further notice. 

All previously scheduled confessions are cancelled.

Holy Week and Easter Liturgies are cancelled.  

Per the Governer's Shelter in Place Order, the Parish Office and the Adoration Chapel will be closed until further notice.

Please know that we are hard at work to find ways for you to remain connected to the church 

and to experience Easter with us.  


We are not able to receive our Lord in the Holy Eucharist or join together in community to worship at the Mass, but God is ever present to us during this difficult time.  Here are some resources to help you pray at home.  

Prayer of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, 
I believe that You
are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. 
I love You above all things, 
and I desire to receive You into my soul. 
Since I cannot at this moment
receive You sacramentally, 
come at least spiritually into my heart.

I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You.

Never permit me to be separated from You.


What is a spiritual Communion? Information on making a spiritual Communion is available here.
