ANNUAL DIOCESAN APPEAL
The 2020 Annual Diocesan Appeal (ADA) is now underway in our parishes. Your support of this year’s ADA ensures that essential charitable, educational and pastoral ministries of the Diocese of Peoria are continued and carried forward. Thanks to all who made a pledge to the ADA! No gift is too small, and our parishes are trying to reach 100% participation. If you have not yet made a gift to the ADA, we invite you to do so today. Every dollar raised to make our goals supports important diocesan services and every dollar raised over our goals will be returned to our parishes.
St. Philomena Goal $55,695 / St. Michael Goal $11,467
Thank you to everyone for your support!
FOOD FOR THE POOR
Please join us the weekend of October 17 & 18 to hear Rev. Scott E. P. Steinkerchner speak at all the Masses about a ministry providing direct relief to the poor throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. Fr. Steinkerchner will share personal witness about Food for the Poor’s mission to care for the destitute as a means of living out the gospel mandate to love one another. Fr. Steinkerchner was ordained for The Order of Preachers, the Dominicans, in 1998 and a member of the Chicago Province. He joined Food for the Poor in 2001 and has been preaching on behalf of those we serve since. Fr. Steinkerchner earned a PhD in Theology in 2005 and has taught at high school, undergraduate and seminary level. In addition he has written three books on interreligious dialogue and his third book came out in 2018 “Pictures of the World”. Please join me in welcoming Fr. Steinkerchner.
