Year of Consecrated Life:
A Day With the Religious

US Bishops and Major Superiors of religious orders declared
Sunday, September 13, 2015, as A Day With The Religious.

The Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary invite everyone in our Freeport Community (St Thomas, St Joseph and St Mary) to join us in Solemn Vespers on Sunday, September 13, 2015, at 4:00pm, in St. Joseph Church. Join us to reminisce all the religious that taught us or family members in the past. Let’s pray and show support for the religious serving in our midst. Please, come and pray with us!

What is “Vespers?” Vespers are prayers that religious women and men promise before God to pray every day for our good. In fact, the sisters pray for us five times every day! Poor sisters, no vacation time from us sinners. Yet they happily pray for us. On this vespers, we can join our prayers with theirs and thank God we have such holy and pleasing prayers that go to God on our behalf. Thank you sisters!

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.
