As the Stay at Home order to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus in the State of Illinois continues through the month of May, our churches remain closed to public worship but their ministries and the Catholic faith that compels them, goes on and remains strong.
Bishop David Malloy seeks to acknowledge that work as well as send encouragement and thanks to the people in the entire diocese for their patience, prayer and good work.
To do this, Bishop Malloy has released a video message of thanks. This message can be viewed on the diocesan YouTube channel, the Diocese of Rockford website and Facebook page.
The links to Bishop Malloy’s message are also included here in English and Spanish.
You are invited to post this video on your parish and school websites as well as on any and all your social media channels.
