Please prayerfully consider continuing your financial support of our parish during this difficult time. We depend on your support to continue the daily operations of St. Raymond as well as the ministries that take care of those in need.   Here are some ways to stay current in your giving to St. Raymond:

►Drop off your financial support in the Rectory mail slot(locate to the left side of the door).
►Mail in your financial support to 604 N. Raynor, Joliet, IL 60435.
►Consider online giving by signing up at or download the mobile app by searching OSV online giving on your mobile device.

Thank you again for your continued and ongoing support of St. Raymond during this difficult time. Our faith will preserve and we ask for your continued prayers during this trying and uncertain times.

Cyber crime has hit St. Raymond and is hitting dioceses nationwide. If/when you receive an email from Fr. Bill Dewan or Rev. William Dewan requesting you to purchase a gift card,  please delete it! It is a scam! This email scam is also using other priests’ names in the diocese asking for money or gift cards.  Parishioners should contact the parish office to verify the legitimacy of any suspicious request they may receive.
