A memorial listing will appear in our Christmas weekend bulletin and a short video will be uploaded to the parish’s Facebook page. All donations received help beautify the church with flowers and other decorations.
Tortellini & Pasta Sauce
Cold weather calls for warm meals. Our Oglesby Ravs are ready, while supplies last! Come by the parish office, $6 per bag, two bags per family. Don’t forget the sauce! Dalla Campanella traditional three meat spaghetti sauce from Holy Rosary Shrine is also available at our Parish Office
Annual Diocesan Appeal
The 2021 Annual Diocesan Appeal is underway. Your support of this year’s Appeal ensures that essential charitable, educational and pastoral ministries of the Diocese of Peoria are continued and carried forward. Unpaid ADA becomes debt for us, while overpaid ADA becomes assessment free bonus! Giving to the ADA is the best way to financially support our parish!
Additional Confession times to prepare for Christmas will be each Wednesday evening of Advent from 6:00 p.m. until all are heard.
Altar and Rosary Society
The Altar & Rosary Society is always ready to welcome new members! Our group of ladies holds a couple of fundraisers each year to support various needs of the church including candles, Baptismal supplies, communion hosts and altar wine, and altar linens. At our monthly meetings, we offer the rosary for those of our parish that has recently passed away, discuss different projects, and simply enjoy a time of fellowship.
Box of Joy Christmas Project
The ladies of the Altar & Rosary Society cannot thank you enough for your participation in the Boxes of Joy program which provides Christmas gifts to children in poor countries. Deena Pavinato delivered 90 filled boxes to Peoria! A special thank you also goes
to the Oglesby Elks #2360 for their monetary donation to assist with shipping costs.
We are asking parishioners when purchasing items for the food pantry to avoid canned goods. The best donations are items that are ready-to-eat and do not require preparation in a kitchen. Examples of great items to donate are boxed cereals, jello cups, granola bars, and cheese & crackers. Also, we are happy to accept any toiletry items you would like to donate. Soap, deodorant, shampoo, toothbrushes and toothpaste are also always in demand.
Volunteers always Welcome!
Have you considered donating your time and talent to the parish? We could always use a few extra readers at Mass and ushers to take up the collection at the offertory. If you can help out, please call Jennifer at the parish office to volunteer. We will accomodate your Mass time preference.
