With the proclamation of the stay-at-home order in Illinois, the parish office is closed until further notice. Messages and emails are checked regularly, but please be patient as it may take time to return those messages. The school office is also closed for the foreseeable future.
Even though the parish is shut down during the current situation, we are still paying our office staff, custodians, and teachers so that they can continue to provide for themselves and their families during this crisis.
As the Sunday collection envelopes are our primary form of income, we still need to collect them to ensure that we have enough funds to do so.
As such, please consider sending your envelopes to the parish through the mail. We appreciate your consideration and are humbled by your generosity.
