GOOD NEWS! We are ready to welcome ALL who are ready to return to Mass.
On June 8th we received word from the Bishop’s Office that we will welcome Phase 5 on Friday, June 11th in our church, as the State of Illinois also transitions.
Here are the highlights of what changes to expect in Phase 5 this weekend:
- The church is open at full capacity.
- Pre-registrations, check-in, and contact tracing have been eliminated.
- Faces masks are only required for those who are not fully vaccinated. (If you are fully vaccinated and still want to wear your mask, by all means, please do so!)
- Seating is open, yet we do have areas set aside for those who prefer six-foot social distancing.
- Bulletins are available after Mass.
For a list of more Phase 5 COVID-19 protocols, please see the attached communications from the Bishop’s Office.
NOT READY to RETURN YET?
We will continue to live stream weekend Mass either at 4 P.M. on Saturday or 9 A.M. on Sunday, depending upon the availability of our live stream team. The link to the live stream Mass will be sent via Flocknote each week, as well as posted on our website, stjamesge.org

SAVE the DATE!
July 3/4 we return to our full weekend Mass Schedule of Saturday at 4 P.M., Sunday at 9 and 11 A.M. and on July 8th, our Thursday morning Mass will resume!
Please note: Our Parking Lot Option which has been offered at 9 A.M. on Sundays during the Bridge Phase will be discontinued after June 27th.
We will continue to offer Reconciliations on Saturdays from 2:30 to 3:15 P.M. in the Cry Room. No registrations or check-ins are required. Simply line up along the wall at the back of the church near the cry room to wait your turn.
Hope to see you soon!
