Jeremy Hylka, Director of Youth Ministry
The Cathedral of St. Raymond is proud to offer a comprehensive Catholic Youth Ministry Program under the direction of Youth Minister Jeremy Hylka. The program will strive to incorporate the teachings students learn in school and from their parents and expand on it. FOLLOW believes faith is not only studied but shared and actively practiced.
FOLLOW is comprised mostly of high school youth from both St. Paul the Apostle Church as well as the Cathedral of St. Raymond in Joliet, IL but is open to anyone who wishes to share their faith with us. FOLLOW has regularly scheduled weekly events as well as larger annual events that comprise other youth ministry program across the diocese, nation and world.
Jeremy will speak at all Masses this weekend regarding this new and inspiring opportunity for our youth.

Hand-Carved Olive Wood Gifts from the Holy Land
Proceeds benefit Catholic schools in the Holy Land.
Please take a look at these beautiful articles on November 8th & 9th
There are more than 600 Christian families living in Bethlehem and are completely dependent on carving olive wood figurines for their livelihood. The recent clashes in the Middle East have stopped the tourism industry in Bethlehem, causing most of those families serious harm in earning their living and forcing many of them to leave their homeland. Emptying the land of Christ from Christians can have tragic consequences on the Holy sites. Issam from “Star of Bethlehem Group” came to the United States with a mission to help those families by selling their beautiful religious hand crafts. The cost of goods goes to benefit the Christian carvers to keep them working in the spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, the profit from sales goes directly to the needy Catholic schools and clinics in the Holy Land. Star of Bethlehem has been approved by many Bishops, and from Diocese of Jerusalem.
