Here's a schedule of local church Masses. Now that churches have opened back up for Mass, those Masses times are highlighted. Masses being streamed or held outdoors will be noted in the description. Otherwise, assume that Mass is inside. If we don't highlighted a Mass time, that means the only option is to stream the Mass. *
There is currently NO obligation to attend Mass.
WE WILL UPDATE THIS LIST FREQUENTLY AS INFO BECOMES AVAILABLE. OUTDOORS REFERS TO A FULL MASS OUTDOORS AND NOT JUST COMMUNION OUTDOORS.
Reopening plans for Peoria's diocese (including a warning):
Our list includes all Catholic churches in McLean, Livingston, Logan, DeWitt, Woodford, Ford and even northwestern portion of Champaign County and southern LaSalle County.
With soundcloud (and sometimes other websites), it will be recorded and posted after it's recorded. With other sites, Masses are generally broadcast live & conveniently can be replayed at anytime.
Generally, anyone can watch a video at a church's facebook page (or youtube) without an account. If we hear that an account is needed, we will try to mention that below in the description. On facebook, click on "posts" or "videos" if you are trying to find it. Scroll down further to see older posted videos. Anytime facebook asks if you want to sign in, you can click "not now." In cases that we've listed a Youtube channel, that is the direct page where a church's videos are uploaded. Some churches use both websites.
For those looking for local Spanish Mass, one option is at St. Mary's parking lot in Bloomington.
In rare cases that Mass is outside, we'll note that. All others are inside.
