Welcome to St. Francis

 


ST. FRANCIS MASSES NOW AT 100% CAPACITY

TUESDAY - FRIDAY MASS (7:30am)
Church is fully open! 
Separate seating areas are being provided in the side pews
for individuals who want or need to maintain social distancing with masks. 
Unvaccinated individuals are asked to continue wearing masks
to help protect those who are at risk and/or unable to receive the vaccination. 
Sign-up Genius pre-registration and contact tracing are no longer required.  
You are still required to enter through the church front doors 
to have your hands disinfected. 
 
Live streaming of Sunday Mass will temporarily continue. 
If you are sick or feeling ill, please stay at home to avoid infecting others. 
Hopefully the remaining protocols will be lifted soon as
more people are vaccinated and the virus dissipates.


Saturday Mass Returns

Over the past several years, on-going discussions have been held regarding the scheduled time of the Saturday evening vigil Mass. In preparation for the full reopening of churches, after much discussion and consultation, and given the number of volunteers, the decision has been made to begin offering a Saturday Mass at 4:00pm next Saturday, June 26, on a trial basis.

to repeal the Illinois parental notification of abortion law.
