The 52 Catholic schools in the Diocese of Joliet will reopen this fall, Bishop Richard Pates announced Tuesday.

The bishop has appointed a task force headed by Rev. Burke Masters to prepare the schools so each will comply with provisions to make the school safe in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.


Pates said the reopening of diocesan parishes has gone well and a similar certification process will be developed for the schools.
