SUBJECT: Guidelines for attending Church:
Bishop Braxton, along with the Illinois bishops and the governor have stated that we can reopen our churches for public Masses. The first scheduled Masses are next weekend, June 13th/14th. Of course, things will be different since there is a limit of 50 people at this time.
Before you arrive: Check your temperature and if you have one, please do not come to church. Stay at home if you feel ill. Make sure you have a face covering to bring and wear. Remember to sign-up to ensure we do not go over the limit. Sign up on the website at www.stbernardandstdamian.org under the Mass you wish to attend. If you do not use a computer, please call/text Deacon Glenn Netemeyer at 618-772-9343 by Friday.
When you arrive: Enter only in marked doorways. Wait patiently to be checked in by a greeter/usher. Keep you face covering or mask on at all times except for receiving Communion. Sanitize your hands as directed by greeter/usher. Observe social distancing at all times (6 feet apart). Greeters/Ushers will direct you to pews on where to sit.
During the Mass: Do not change seats. No physical sign of peace will be exchanged during Mass. Follow instructions for Communion:
Parking Communion: If you are uncomfortable in entering the church, the Mass can be watched from your phone in the parking lot. Communion will be available at the main entrance outside of church. Please practice social distancing.
Ordination of the Bishop
Welcome to St. Damian's and St. Bernard's Website. We are publishing this website so that we can enter the wonderful world of electronic ministry. We wish to bring the great experience of the small, close-knit community of believers to all who wish to experience Christ in the way that the apostolic mission first envisioned.
