If you are a trained lector, please sign up using the button below for Masses on the weekend of August 8th & 9th.

 Thank you for your patience as we work out all the details of reopening our church. We are glad that we will soon be back together, however we are being cautious for your protection. We realize that you may be frustrated with the guidelines for attending Mass listed below, but we are closely following the guidelines from the Illinois Health Department. We are doing our best to accommodate our parishioners. In the meantime, maintain hope in the person of Christ Jesus, the true reason for our community.

Starting on June 13, 2020, Saint Patrick Parish in Joliet will offer public Masses with the following Mass schedule until further notice:
 

Saturday: 4:00 PM (English)
Sunday: 9:00 AM (English) 11: AM (Spanish) 1:00 PM (Spanish)
 
We ask that parishioners sign up for the above listed Masses. Sign-ups are on a first come, first serve basis. This Mass schedule along with the amount of people allowed at each Mass will be reassessed and any changes will be communicated to the parish community. 

At this time, Confessions will be heard by appointment only.

 

Please note that while our parish is implementing safety protocols for returning to Mass, there is still an increased risk of contracting the Coronavirus. For the elderly and those with underlying medical conditions, we encourage you to continue to join us online. We are currently pursuing the option to livestream Mass and provide a weekly recording on our website.     

Make a reservation for you and your family at our website or our “News and Notes”.  If you do not have email or access to the internet, please call the Parish Office at 815-727-4746.  The office is available to take reservations Monday - Thursday from 10:00 am - 2:30 pm Friday from 9:30 am to noon. Only those with a confirmed reservation will be allowed to enter the churches at this time. Reservations are on a first come, first serve basis. The parish will determine how many seats are available based on the current state guidelines and the appropriate amount of spacing in the church. Once seats are filled, there will be no wait-list offered at this time. Reservations will be offered weekly for the following Sunday Masses. We will not make reservations for future Masses in advance.

When making a reservation via the internet you will only be asked for your first and last name and your email address.  When making a reservation by phone, please give your first and last name, your phone number and which Mass you would like to attend.

 

You will receive a confirmation email/phone call that your reservation has been made. If you do not receive this confirmation, your reservation has not been accepted. Leaving a voicemail message or sending an email does not confirm your reservation.


We need your help: We need volunteers at each Mass to assist with the check in process, seat attendees, direct parishioners in the communion line and at dismissal. We need volunteers at least 18 years old and in good health. No previous experience necessary. Training will be provided. For further details, contact Deacon Mike at dmikedoyle@gmail.com or (779) 234-6565

Let us thank God for his loving protection as we are opening up parish church for public Masses! Thank you for your patience with us as we navigate through this unprecedented time. Please know of our prayer for you and your loved ones. 

Sincerely,

Father J. Rodolphe Arty, CSC Pastor

SCAM ALERT!!!

Cyber crime is hitting St. Patrick and is hitting the dioceses nationwide. If/when you receive an email from Fr. Arty requesting you to purchase a gift card,  please delete it! It is a scam! This email comes from "Rev. Joseph R. Arty". Please know that you will never receive an email from Father Arty requesting gifts from you. The questionable email address is listed as revjosephstpats@gmail.com. This is not Father's email address. This email scam is also using other priests’ names in the diocese asking for money or gift cards.  Parishioners should contact the parish office to verify the legitimacy of any suspicious request they may receive.

Thank you, and God Bless.
