We invite you to explore opportunities to know Jesus Christ

Catholic Christian faith.
As a reminder, don’t forget to turn off your cell phone in Church.
Thank you and have a good week!
|God took the strength of a mountain||The joy of a morning in spring|
|The majesty of a tree||The faith of a mustard seed|
|The warmth of a summer sun||The patience of eternity|
|The calm of a quiet sea||The depths of a family need|
|The generous soul of nature||Then God combined these qualities|
|The comforting arm of night||When there was nothing more to add|
|The wisdom of the ages||He knew His masterpiece was complete|
|The power of the eagle's flight||And so He called it …. Dad|

Pray for our deceased priests of the Diocese who celebrate their anniversary of death this week:
A sincere “thank you” to all who have responded to Diocese Stewardship 2013. We truly appreciate your gift. We have 504 envelope holders in the parish and have heard from 221. We need to hear from the remaining 273 parishioners who have not yet responded before we can bring closure to Stewardship/2013.
You can take care of this responsibility by returning the card that was mailed out to you this week or stop in the Narthex and fill out a new one. Payments can be made monthly or quarterly and can be done through an electronic transfer, just attach a void check to your pledge card, or one may charge it to your credit card. Another option would be to make a pledge/gift on line at
Make a Stewardship Pledge.
If you are unable to contribute this year due to unemployment or other difficulties, please just sign and return your card that we may forward that information to Rockford. A final listing of financial donors will be in the bulletin once we have completed the drive. If everyone helps, we can make our parish goal.
Who Flew the Kite? - "I did" said the wind. "I did," said the string, "I did," said the paper, "I did," said the boy. In reality, all flew the kite. Each had its own part to play. Whether you are on the front lines of ministry, in the main office, or providing financial support and prayer, together ALL are winning people to Christ. Just like the kite, if one part fails, all fail.
Again we are asking you not to bring any donations after Sunday, as the food will be taken to the Food Pantry on Monday and your donation will sit in the corridor for a month and we need that space during the week or when we have other scheduled activities in Holy Family Hall.
Our schedule will remain the same as this past year, Sunday 9:00 - 10:15 am; Sunday evening 5:00 - 7:00 pm (twice a month for 6th – 9th); Weds. 6:30 – 7:45 pm.
We are in need of teachers for kindergarten through eighth grade. We would like to offer classes for four year olds and kindergarten, however we do need at least eight students per class.
Anyone wishing to volunteer there services please contact Sr. Rose Marie at (630) 897-1029 or send email to: email@example.com.
The Religious Education program will begin in September with the Parent meeting on Sunday, September 8th.
Please mark your calendar, as this is a required meeting for all parents with children in the program. Classes will begin on Wednesday, September 11th and on
Sunday, September 15th.
To date, your contributions have exceeded $ 3,100.00 We hope to conclude this first campaign by Sunday June 23rd to provide for the immediate needs of the mothers who “chose their children”. Thank you!
If you have a bottle at home, we ask that you return your bottle. If you would like to make a donation, make your check payable to the Fr. McGivney Center for Hope and Healing.
If you or someone you know would like to receive this sacrament, mark your calendar and plan to attend. The Anointing will take place after the homily. There will be a Reception in the Narthex of Church following Mass. Come and experience the healing of the Lord through this wonderful Sacrament.
This evening of prayer and discussion will begin with Eucharistic Adoration at 5:00 pm, followed by dinner, a talk by Bishop Malloy, and an opportunity to speak with Fr. Keith Romke, the Diocesan Director of Vocations, as well as several seminarians about the process of joining the seminary and becoming a priest.
If interested please call the Vocations Office at (815) 399-4300 x375.
Religious Orders from across the country will be available to help answer your questions. The Vocation Office of the Diocese of Rockford invites you,
June 25th from 2:00 - 6:00 pm at the Bishop Lane Retreat Center in Rockford, to meet these faith-filled Sisters. There will be a presentation, question an answer times, and you can sign up for a Walk and Talk with one of the Sisters. There is no cost to you, just your openness to God's call.
