From The Diocese of Belleville:
Parish COVID Guidelines Update:
From the Most Reverend Michael McGovern: I will lift the dispensation and reintroduce the obligation to attend Sunday Mass for our Catholic community in southern Illinois beginning on Sunday, April 10, 2022. For many people who have continued to participate at Mass via social communication, I encourage you to see this step as an invitation to return to our parishes as we begin Holy Week. How fitting it is that we should gather around the altar of the Lord in church as we celebrate the mysteries of our salvation in Christ.

We made a quarantine retreat! All retreat content is still hosted here. Whether you’re stuck at home or not, an hour or two a day is all you need for this week-long experience.
Like so many institutions, we face financial uncertainty. About 95% of our income comes from Mass collections, which involves difficulties right now. If you can’t attend but can mail contributions, you are keeping the parish alive. St. Kateri Parish P.O. Box 190 Ridgway, IL 62979
