Mass during COVID-19
During the COVID-19 outbreak, there will be no daily Mass or weekend Mass. However, the church will be open for private prayers and confessions during normal office hours and Friday evenings at 5:30 pm. Please continue to offer up prayer for the daily Mass intentions listed.
At this time, Bishop Malloy has suspended all public Masses during Holy Week. The Bishop will live stream the Masses during Holy Week. Those that were to be baptized at the Easter Vigil, will be baptized at a later date.
If you are in need of sacraments at this time, please call the office, leave your name and number and Fr. Okoro will call you.
If you are in need of help in picking up groceries or prescriptions because of risk of infection, please call the office and leave a message, and either Fr. Okoro or the Business Manager will call you.
You can listen to daily Mass on Relevant Radio – 980 AM at noon CST and 9am on Sundays. The Mass is also streamed live at https://relevantradio.com/faith/daily-mass-video. Bishop Malloy will also be streaming Sunday Mass at 9:00 am on the Rockford Diocese website (www.rockforddiocece.org) and on the Rockford Diocese Facebook page.
Please continue to pray for the church and each other during this time. We will continue to keep you updated with information from Bishop Malloy.
