MASS AIRS ON CATHOLIC SPIRIT RADIO & EWTN TV EVERYDAY AT 7AM.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

HERE'S A LIST OF ONLINE VIDEO OF LOCAL EASTER MASSES.

We compiled a list of as many local churches that we are aware of that provide this service. 

 

Unless otherwise noted, you do not have to have a facebook account (or youtube account) in order to view the videos.  Perhaps, click on posts if you don't see the video.  Scroll down further to see older Masses.  You can click "not now" anytime it asks you to sign in.  

 

As is the case every year, Holy Thursday’s Mass is for the Last Supper and Good Friday’s is considered a service rather than a Mass but it typically includes a homily.  The Easter Masses include the option of the vigil Mass for Easter on Saturday night or Easter Mass on Sunday morning.”

Our list includes all Catholic churches in McLean, Livingston, Logan, DeWitt, Woodford, Ford and even northwestern portion of Champaign County and southern LaSalle County. 

All cities are in McLean County unless otherwise noted.  All churches are part of the Diocese of Peoria unless otherwise noted. 

 

*Before you attend Mass, you'll want to read a statement by the Peoria diocese warning people about health aspects related to attending Mass.  To read it, scroll down to the bottom of this page.
