June 20th Mass
Sister Thea Bowman Catholic School
- On Wednesday, June 9, the Diocese of Belleville updated their COVID-19 protocols as the State of Illinois entered Phase 5.
- Reservations are no longer required for Sunday Masses, and we can resume 100% capacity.
- The dispensation from attending Sunday Mass is still in effect. We will pass along the information when the obligation is reinstated.
- We know there may people who would rather continue with social distancing so we are reserving the front pews on the left side of the church so they may do so. This will be self-monitored social distancing.
- Unvaccinated individuals should wear a mask and maintain social distancing. Vaccination status is based on the honor system.
- Our holy water fonts are filled and available for you to bless yourself.
- We will resume passing the offering basket to take up the collection
- Hand sanitizer is still available for use before communion.
We look forward to seeing everyone at Mass!
Prayers to Saint Joseph
Saint Joseph, Spouse of the Virgin Mary:
Grant, we pray, almighty God,
that through the intercession of Saint Joseph
your Church may constantly watch over the
unfolding of the msteries of human salvation,
whose beginnings you entrusted to his faithful care.
Through Christ our Lord.
