NEW: Mask Mandate
(Effective August 30, 2021)

On August 30, 2021, the Belleville Diocese released new guidance requiring all individuals, regardless of their vaccination status, ages two and up, to wear a mask while indoors. This includes weekday and weekend Masses, Eucharistic Adoration, Children's Liturgy of the Word, and PSR. Masking is also required in all indoor parish social events. 
Read the guidance here.

Separate seating areas continue to be provided in the side pews for individuals
who want or need to maintain social distancing.

Due to the increased hazard from the Coronavirus and the recent Church and state mask mandate, we must postpone the Bible classes until an undecided future date.  
Watch this medium for announcements.

Attention Altar Servers

We are moving to revitalize the altar server program
which was brought to a standstill by COVID-19.  

Trained Servers: Servers who have already been trained and want to resume serving, please contact Deacon Steve or Amber Griesbaum to get a Weekend Server Request Form. These would primarily be the individuals moving into 7th through 12th grades this school year. Deacon Steve’s contact information is under the “Contact” tab on the web page. We welcome volunteers at any time, however, you must submit this form and be on the servers’ schedule to be eligible for possible incentives or the Master Server trip next summer. 

Server Training: There will be server training on both Saturday, Sept. 11th from 9:00am-12:00pm, and on Sunday, Sept. 12th from 1:00pm-4:00pm in Church. The classes are identical, so prospective servers need to attend only one class. Servers who attended similar classes in August are not required to attend. However, even experienced servers are welcome if they feel they need a review after the long COVID break.
