Illinois Phase 4 & Places of Worship
As the state moves into Phase 4 of the Restore Illinois plan, the current COVID-19 safety protocols for churches will remain in effect. No additional negotiations regarding protocols have taken place. The Church is actually ahead of Phase 4 guidelines for groups due to the negotiated agreement allowing a percentage of capacity that exceeds the current norm allowed by the state. The Phase 2 guidelines for daily and weekend Mass and the Sacraments are to be strictly adhered to regarding attendance limits, social distancing, hand sanitizing, disinfecting, reservation systems, wearing masks, etc. (Phase 1/1A guidelines apply for parishes not yet in Phase 2.)

Today's notes are joyful! We are having Mass, give all honor and glory to God. All peoples, clap your hands. Cry to God with shouts of Joy! Amen! Psalm 89 says; "Forever I will sing the goodness of the Lord." Blessed the people who know the joyful shout; in the light of your countenance, O Lord they walk. At your name they rejoice all day, and through your justice they are exalted." In the last three months, we all had various crosses to bear, hopefully we as a Christian country will never have to go without Church again.Again the Psalms say "Let all the earth cry out to God with Joy!"
Good day and God Bless, Deacon Arch
