Do you feel like your spiritual life needs a jump start or is feeling a little shallow? We are now taking names to reserve spots for our very powerful Light of the World Retreat. This retreat has inspired and moved so many people of our parish, and we want you to experience what so many others have. Spots fill quickly so don't delay in signing up!
Every Tuesday throughout the school year there is an opportunity to gather and learn more about the Catholic Faith. Content will be from the online platform Formed, and discussion will follow the presentation. This is a great way to connect with fellow parishioners and have thoughtful discussion and learning opportunities to grow in your faith. The year will kick off learning about the Holy Spirit.
Do you know someone who is interested in becoming Catholic? Or maybe someone who was baptized but never received the other sacraments? Or maybe is just interested to learn more about what the Catholic Church teaches and believes? Well we have the perfect solution to all of those needs! Classes recently began for RCIA, but there is still time to join us. You or your loved one can call the parish office to register or ask any questions they might have. Classes are once a week on Wednesday evenings at 7:00. Please consider joining us!
Please consider supporting our Catholic School, St. Mary's, through the Empower Illinois tax-credit program. In 2017 Illinois enacted the Invest In Kids Scholarship Tax Credit Program. This program offers a 75 percent income tax credit to individuals and businesses that contribute to qualified Scholarship Granting Organizations (SGOs). The SGOs then provide scholarships for students whose families meet the income requirements to attend qualified, non-public schools in Illinois. You as the donor can specify St. Mary School as the recipient of your donation, and in turn you are potentially giving a student the opportunity to attend our school who might not otherwise be able to do so.
