Mother Church of the Catholic Diocese of Joliet

Welcome to the Cathedral of Saint Raymond Nonnatus


This year, the Church will celebrate Catechetical Sunday on September 15, 2019. Those who the Community has designated to serve as catechists will be called forth to be commissioned for their ministry. Catechetical Sunday is a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the role that each person plays, by virtue of Baptism, in handing on the faith and being a witness to the Gospel. Catechetical Sunday is an opportunity for all to rededicate themselves to this mission as a community of faith. The 2019 theme is "Stay With Us."

Join us on Saturday mornings to burn off some calories and prepare your heart with Lectio Divina for the upcoming Sunday Gospel with friends! Fr. Burke Masters leads the men’s workout and prayer and Katie Choudhary leads the women’s group. 6:45am -  Opening Prayer and warm up lap. 6:50-7:30am - Workout (men and women separate). 7:30-7:55am - Prayer with Sunday’s Gospel. 7:55am -  Closing Prayer. 8:00am - Mass (for those who can join us) We meet on the Centennial Walkway in the east parking lot of the Cathedral.  Come when you can! We will be out there every Saturday!

A Fun, Flexible, Faith-filled Catholic Club for girls! Little Flowers Girls’ Club® is a Catholic club for girls K-8th that teaches virtues through scripture, saints’ biographies and the Catechism of the Catholic Church.  Like a scouting program, girls earn badges for the virtues they have practiced, life skills they have learned. But unlike most scouting organizations, the girls learn and earn their badges through a distinctly Catholic lens. This Catholic to the Core program relies on the stories of the saints, Sacred Scripture and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Materials Needed:  Wreath III Members Guide and Patches. New Members will need to purchase a Sash and Club Cross Patch. Little Flowers will meet in the Tower on the following dates: September 22, October 20, November 17, December 15, January 19, February 16, March 15, April 19 from 9:00am - 10:40am.  A special end of the year gathering is scheduled for Saturday, May 16.

The Diocese of Joliet will host the Biblical Institute site at the Cathedral of St. Raymond (Year 1) on Wednesdays from 7-9 p.m.  Beginning September 18. You’ll learn a lot about this great program as well as a few things about Catholic Bible study that will help your experience of Scripture right now.Jesus invited potential disciples to “come and see.” We invite you to “come and see” if BIDJ is what you need to deepen your relationship with Scripture and with Christ.  Register HERE.

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 with a @gmail account as the sender 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. All are being sent from an @gmail account. Parishioners can and should contact the parish office to verify the legitimacy of any suspicious request they may receive or may have received.
