Fr. Luis Segura, MSC, Parochial Administrator of St Therese of Jesus Parish, requests that Parishioners and Visitors that want to attend public Masses at our parish, signup or register using this online form or by calling ahead to the Parish Office at 630-898-5422 during business hours. This is a requirement stipulated by the Dioceses of Rockford for the phased re-opening the Churches for regular Liturgical Celebrations. We will be operating at 30% of our capacity winch means we will be able to accommodate a maximum of 60 people at each Mass for now.

You are still required to call ahead in order to reserve a spot so we can fulfill the requirements of contact-tracing required by the Dioceses. Please call the parish office at 630-898-5422 ahead of the weekend Mass.

A Message from Most Reverend David J. Malloy Bishop of Rockford

posted Mar 17, 2020, 12:23 PM by Jose Bermudez

** STATEMENT UPDATED AS OF 2:00 PM, 3/17/2020 **

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

The outbreak of the coronavirus has become an event unique in our lifetime. While diseases and epidemics have always been a part of human history, in recent decades medical advances have largely protected us from such outbreaks, at least in our part of the world.

As we have seen in recent days, the growth in understanding of the danger of this virus along with the corresponding expansion of guidance from health professionals has impacted our lives as believers and as citizens. First and foremost, we are people of faith. Our lives of prayer, the sacraments and the practice of our faith come together as our witness to the gift of faith. In that context, the Eucharist is “the source and summit of the Christian life.” (Lumen Gentium 11).

At the same time, as citizens we are participants in our society and so we bear our responsibility to contribute to the common good.

Prayer for our Holy Mother's protection during this uncertain period.

Statement to the faithful of the Diocese of Rockford from Bishop David J. Malloy

March 13, 2020

Dear Priests, Deacons and Parishioners,

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, on your own intelligence do not rely; in all your ways be mindful of Him, and He will make straight your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6

In response to the outbreak of the coronavirus, the Diocese of Rockford, its parish communities and schools have implemented its guidelines for Influenza and the Liturgy to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. With further guidance from the Center for Disease Control and, more recently, Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker, and in reviewing the guidance of the health departments of the counties comprising the Diocese, taking into account our pastoral mission and service to all members of the faithful and the public, I am hereby issuing the following statement.
