Church Reopening Update – Ongoing


WELCOME HOME!

Beginning on June 11, Illinois moved to Phase 5 of our reopening plan. What does that mean for us at St. Giles?

Coming to Mass

  • All are welcome at St. Giles. Restrictions on numbers in the church are lifted, and we no longer need to require registration prior to attending Masses or any other prayer service or event. Come to church whenever you are able.
  • Masks are required for all those entering the Church and all buildings on the Parish campus.
  • During Mass and other services, come to participate with your heart and your voice! We will be providing worship aids so that we may once again all sing together.
  • Eucharistic Ministers will continue to sanitize their hands prior to the distribution of communion. Those coming to communion may have their hands sanitized if they wish.

The pandemic has taught us much about new ways of being church. Our livestream Masses will continue through our YOUTUBE CHANNEL so that those who are unable to be with us physically can join with us during Mass spiritually.

Some may be nervous about returning to Mass and those that have been back in church may be nervous about these changes. Greeters and Ushers will remain present as you enter the building to ease the transition back to church. If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to one of the greeters or ushers and they can assist you.

Our hearts yearn to be present again with each other. Welcome Home!

PRAYER FOR SPIRITUAL COMMUNION – My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love you above all things, and I desire to receive you into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace you as if you were already there and unite myself wholly to you. Never permit me to be separated from you. Amen.
