We have replaced our very old and well-worn Gather hymnals with a new book called Worship. To defray the expense of the new books, we are offering an opportunity to purchase a bookplate that will be affixed to the inside front cover of the hymnal. Memorialize a loved one, honor someone special or simply show your appreciation for Sacred music. Cost is $20.

The Catholic Ministries Annual Appeal (CMAA) helps our parish and the Diocese of Joliet to provide countless ministries, programs and services to support our  friends and neighbors in immeasurable ways. Information about the 2017 CMAA and a request to make a pledge has been sent to all parishioners. Please review the materials, pray about how you can help further the ministries funded by our CMAA, and consider making the most generous gift possible. Our parish goal is
