Stay-at-home order is in effect through at least late May.  

Here's a schedule of how to watch local parish Mass online

Since public Masses are not able to be held at this time, many priests are recording and broadcasting Masses on the internet for people to view.  We compiled a list of as many local churches that we are aware of that film daily or Weekend  Mass. Our list includes all Catholic churches in McLean, Livingston, Logan, DeWitt, Woodford, Ford and even northwestern portion of Champaign County and southern LaSalle County.  Not every church offer this unique service.  We will keep this list updated.  When public Masses resume, the public Mass list on our site will have a much longer list of churches. 

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 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, go to stmarysbloomington.org and click on Sunday Mass in Spanish.
