Welcome to The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Catholic Church

Dear Parishioners,

In addition to instructions issued by the Diocese of Joliet, all parishes and diocesan offices and facilities are to follow instructions and guidelines suggested by the Illinois Department of Public Health, the CDC and orders issued by the State of Illinois.  All churches and adoration chapels must be closed and locked, no public gatherings on church property, and no personnel may arrange for such gatherings on other sites. Weddings, baptisms, funerals and wakes must be postponed.  Priests may still say Mass privately.  Parish offices are all closed. 

Many parishes have provided beautiful online liturgies and opportunities for prayer. This is a comfort for everyone watching from home.

Bishop Pates, too, and Bishop Barron of Los Angeles have been making efforts to be more available to everyone online. I would like to take this opportunity to announce the live streaming of these two Masses each day. I too am working on live streaming Sunday Mass and Holy Week and Easter Masses and Services. Please encourage your children and families and friends to watch and be more connected to the celebration of the Liturgy of the Word and Eucharist.

Holy Mass with Bishop Pates - Live at 11:30 AM each day.

Stay well & God Bless.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

In these last days of Lent and as we move toward Good Friday, join me in praying the Stations of the Cross. In this U-Tube video are presented the Scriptural Stations of the Cross by Saint John Paul II.  The Stations are a meditative prayer based on the passion of Jesus.  This traditional devotion grew out of the custom of the early disciples of the Church and Holy Land pilgrims who retraced the last steps of Jesus to Calvary. Father Noesen.

Pope Francis' Litany of Supplication The English translation of the Litany of Supplication used during the prayer service on Friday evening presided over by Pope Francis on the steps of St Peter’s Basilica.

Family Sunday Worship Resources.  The Diocese of Joliet has put some resources to assist in celebrating Sundays with our families during this time.
