Mass Procedures

St. Patrick’s is open for weekday and weekend Masses with restrictions set by the Governor. The Bishops of Illinois were given a plan that allows people to return to Mass. The requirements have a number of details that we have put into place. If you’d like to volunteer with us to assist with our ministry, please contact Deacon Mike at or call 779-234-6565.

A limited number of people will be allowed to attend each Mass – right now approximately 96 total. You can call the rectory at 815-727-4746 to be placed on a reservation sheet or click on the reservation link on this website.

Face masks are required! You need to enter from the back of the parking lot using the marked “Enter” door.  An usher will check you in and sanitize your hands.  You will be guided down the church aisle and seated in the pews available closest to the front.  We are to maintain Social Distancing (6 feet) from households. Families living in the same house hold are permitted to sit together  

You will not be able to leave before the end of Mass and ushers will guide you out using the appropriate exits.  We will dismiss people starting at the back of the church and work our way forward.

Communion is only in the Hand for now. The following procedure will be used:

1. Ushers will let you out of your pew into the side aisle.

2. Please walk to the front of the church while maintaining social distancing. Markers are on the floor to assist you

3. When at the front, another usher will sanitize your hands. Please rub it in quickly until it dries.

4. Step forward to the priest with one hand extended out.

5. Step to the side to the area marked with a cross.

6. Lower your mask and consume the Host.

7. Replace your mask and walk down the center aisle to your seat while again maintaining social distancing.

Thank you for your continued patience!
