We are two Catholic Churches close to downtown Freeport, IL. Our communities are over 150 years old and have been dedicated to our lord Jesus Christ since our inception. We believe in God the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was concieved by the Holy Spirit, born of ythe Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilot, was crucified, died and was buried; he descended into hell; on the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the father almighty; from there he will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.

One thought on “Live Streaming Alert! Priesthood Ordination June 28th


    Keep them, I pray Thee, dearest Lord, keep them, for they are Thine –
    Thy priests whose lives burn out before Thy consecrated shrine.
    Keep them, for they are in the world, though from the world apart.
    When earthly pleasures tempt, allure, Shelter them in Thy heart.
    Keep them, and comfort them in hours of loneliness and pain.
    When all their life of sacrifice for souls seems but in vain.
    Keep them, and Oh, remember, Lord They have no one but Thee;
    Yet they have only human hearts, with human frailty.
    Keep them as spotless as the Host that daily they caress.
    Their every thought and word and deed,
    Deign, dearest Lord, to bless.
