Parish Announcements


During the month of January, we will be participating in the Pennies for Life collection. Each parishioner is asked to contribute 1 cent for each year of his/her life in thanksgiving to God for the gift of life He has given them. Grandpas, grandmas, moms, dads, and children are all urged to participate. The collection will be donated to support the diocesan sponsored Family Resources Center in Peoria, a center devoted to providing resources with a pro-life/pro-family orientation. You may drop your donation in the collection basket in a specially marked envelope for Pennies for Life anytime during the month of January. Since January 22, 1973 Supreme Court decision permitting abortion on demand for all nine months of pregnancy, there have been over 60.5 million babies aborted! Thank you for your participation!


Eucharistic Adoration will be held on Thursday, January 20, from 8:00am to 7:00pm.
