The City of Chicago announced recently that face coverings are now OPTIONAL.
Use your best judgement when it comes to your own safety and the safety of others, and do not come to church if you are feeling ill. Also, be kind and respectful to one another if the person choses or not to wear a mask.
- All capacity restrictions are lifted, Masses, liturgies, sacramental celebrations, parish/school events and all offices may resume 100% capacity.
- Physical distancing is NOT required for vaccinated persons, but please be respectful of other peoples personal space.
- Physical distancing is recommended by public health authorities, when possible, for unvaccinated persons if conditions allow up to 6 ft. of separation.
Temperature checks and Hand Sanitizing
- No Temperature checks.
- We encourage you to sanitize your hands when you enter the church.
- Sanitizing of the hands before receiving Communion is optional, please ask the Greeter/usher when you exit your pews.
- Proof of vaccination is NOT required for attendance at any liturgies or services.
As Catholics who cherish every human life, we urge anyone who has not been vaccinated to please do so for the safety of all. Approved vaccines are free and easily obtained. As Pope Francis has said, “I believe that morally everyone must take the vaccine. It is the moral choice because it is about your life but also the lives of others.” As disciples of Jesus, who preached and lived kindness for our brothers and sisters, we can do no less.
Reception of Holy Communion
- As has been our recent practice, we are not actively sanitizing your hands before you receive Holy Communion. But should you still wish to have your hands sanitized, please extend your hands to the Ministers of Hospitality as you exit your pews.
- Holy Communion will still only be in the form of Bread, the distributing/receiving Holy Communion from the cup remains suspended at this time.The archdiocese will communicate once sharing of the cup may resume.
Live Streaming on Facebook: If you are not able to attend, Mass will be live streamed on SJB’s Facebook page.
