September & October 2022 Highlights


The Illinois’s indoor mask mandate has been lifted 
There are the diocesan requirements that remain in place:
1. Even if you decide that your congregation will continue wearing masks indoors, preachers, readers, and leaders of prayers may remove their masks while engaging in these parts of the liturgy.
2. Social gatherings (e.g., coffee hour) that include the removal of masks for eating and drinking may resume.
3. Congregations should continue to refrain from using the common cup for communion.

4. As you make your plans, please make intentional provision for safely welcoming those who are not vaccinated.
