**DUE TO A MANDATE BY BISHOP PATES, ALL MASSES AND CONFESSIONS HAVE BEEN SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE**
FROM THE PASTOR
Greetings St. Anthony Parish,
Below you will find the most recent communication from Bishop Pates and the Diocese of Joliet in regards to the approved plan of gradually re-opening our church. Please find assurance by knowing that we are all feeling the same frustration and eagerness to open our church doors. It has been a feat to tackle for all the Catholic churches and Bishops in Illinois to unite and construct a common plan with specific protocols in place to ensure, first and foremost, the safety of our parishioners. As these plans have been approved and adhere to the CDC and governor's guidelines, St. Anthony has immediately started taking action to begin to fulfill the prerequisites set forth by the Bishop to move towards this phased re-open. Please understand that this will be a gradual re-open over the course of weeks/months with safety being our first priority. We must adhere to the restrictions and plans provided to us by the Diocese of Joliet. We continue to ask for your patience and prayers as we navigate these new days ahead. Thank you to our beloved parish for your continued support!
