Daily Masses Now Held in Cathedral Commons

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion Needed

Eucharistic Ministers assist in the nourishing of God's children with the Body and Blood of Christ.  We invite and encourage everyone, baptized and confirmed, in the parish to consider this ministry.  The commitment that is asked of a Eucharistic Minister is to serve at scheduled Masses in which one would already be participating. For more information please contact the Cathedral Office 815.722.6653.  Training will be provided.

Lectors Needed

Lectors proclaim the Word of God at Sunday Mass and other special occasions.
Anyone baptized and confirmed interested in serving our parish in this important and rewarding ministry please contact the Cathedral Office 815.722.6653.  Training will be provided.

Wedding Coordinator Volunteers Needed

We're looking for enthusiastic individuals or couples to join us!
JOB OPPORTUNITY . . . Well, not really a "job" exactly, but definitely an opportunity to be a part of a joyful and satisfying ministry as Wedding Coordinator. Along with the priest's or deacon's help, wedding coordinators assist couples with their wedding rehearsal and ceremony. Rehearsals are typically held on Thursday or Friday evenings, and require approximately one hour of time. Wedding ceremonies are usually performed on Friday or Saturday afternoons, and also require about one hour of coordinator time. For more information on becoming a part of this important ministry, please contact Dave or Yvonne Callans at 815.723.4495, or call Danielle at the Cathedral Office 815.722.6653 x212.

Pope Francis has proclaimed 2015 a Year of Consecrated Life, starting on the First Sunday of Advent November 30, 2014 and ending on February 2, 2016, the World Day of Consecrated Life.

Religious life ought to promote growth in the church by way of attraction. The church must be attractive. Wake up the world! Be witnesses of a different way of doing things, of acting, of living! . . . It is this witness that I expect of you. Religious should be men and women who are able to wake the world up.

—Pope Francis, meeting with the Union of Superiors General, November 29, 2013
