Diocesan Convention To Be Held Online in November

In consultation with the chancellor and elected leaders of the diocese, Bishop Lee has determined that diocesan convention will be held online this year as part of our effort to curtail the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. The state’s Restore Illinois plan permits gatherings of more than 50 people only in Phase 5, after a vaccine or effective treatment is widely available. This is unlikely to occur by November, according to most public health experts.
Please continue to hold the dates of November 20 and 21, and watch future issues of the newsletter for more details.
