"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
In the midst of the "holiday season" a helpful gift to your parish would be a pledge/contribution to the 2014 Annual Catholic Services Appeal. This yearly fundraiser finances and supports the various ministries rendered by our diocesan church of Springfield in Illinois. A contribution to the diocese is in effect a contribution to our parish. Thanks to all who responded in generosity! If you need a pledge card or further information, please contact Fr. Bob (793-1330).
