"Growing Communities of Faith"
Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age." — Matthew 28: 19-20
Even though we have entered a new calendar year, one can still make a pledge or contribution to the 2014 Annual Catholic Services Appeal, the yearly fundraiser provides for a number of ministries and services carried out by our Diocese of Springfield in Illinois. A contribution helps our parish in the long-run! If you need a pledge/contribution card, simply contact the Parish Office (793-1330).
