In case you choose not to attend in-person, we have listed the youtube channel or facebook page of churches that we are aware of that stream their Mass. You can typically watch live or after the fact, too.
If facebook asks you to login, you can try clicking "not now" to still watch videos.
When attending Mass, the Diocese of Peoria wants you to keep this in mind,
