WARNING ABOUT RISK ASSUMED BY PARISHIONERS: While our parish staffs will attempt to take appropriate precautions consistent with the advice of public health authorities, parishioners and guests should understand that they assume the risk of contracting COVID-19 anytime they enter a public space since such precautions do not eliminate the risk of infection.
Online Catholic Masses
The Diocese of Peoria is made up of 156 parishes and over 55,000 registered Catholic families. There are many ministries and apostolates that the Diocese can offer that we as a single parish cannot. Catechetical training for schools and CCD teachers, recruitment and training of priests, medical care for retired priests, ministry to our students on college campuses, evangelization, administration of many of the details of parish finances...these are just a few of the many services we receive from the Diocese of Peoria. Your support, in prayer and through your sacrificial gift, make it possible to provide these services. Any funds received above our goal are returned to our parish.
OUR 2020 ADA GOAL: $32,001
