RCIA, the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults, is a program for individuals interested in learning more about the teachings and traditions of the Catholic Church. Classes are open to non-Catholics seeking to join the Church through sacrament, non-Catholics seeking only to learn more about the faith and adult Catholics in need of additional sacrament preparation. Individuals are welcome to join us for classes with no obligation to join the Catholic Church. Classes to begin in September. Contact Msgr. Mike for more information.
Adoration will be held Thursday, October 21, from 9:00am to 7:00pm except 5:00pm-6:00pm for Mass. Please sign up here.
2021 ANNUAL DIOCESAN APPEAL
The 2021 Annual Diocesan Appeal is doing well. To date, St. Philomena has received 51 pledges totaling $27,790.00 towards our goal of $55,066.00. To date, St. Michael has received 4 pledges totaling $525.00 towards our goal of $11,034.00. But we need all of you to contribute. If you have not yet made a gift to the ADA, we invite you to do so today. There are envelopes at the entrances of both churches. Every dollar raised to make our goals supports important diocesan ministries, and every dollar raised over our goal will be kep in the parishes. To those who have contributed, we are most grateful.
If you wish to make a donation on your pledge or pay your contribution in full, please make your check payable to the Catholic Diocese of Peoria. Reminder statements are sent monthly from December-July. Donations may also be made by signing up for automatic deduction by credit or debit card, by direct debit, or online.
