What's new for St Joseph and St Mary Parishes!

Our New St Joseph Piano

Leave a comment

Have you been enjoying the beautiful sounds coming from the choir loft? It is our new Yamaha NU-1 Hybrid piano. A hybrid piano is an electronic piano that has hammers that make the touch still feel like you are playing a real piano. The hammers actually hit sensors instead of strings, so there is no need to ever have it tuned. With the touch of a button, it will sound like an organ, a harpsichord, or a piano. Another button will have it instantly playing in a different key, which is a great benefit when accompanying a soloist who needs to sing in a higher or lower key. This wonderful piano was purchased for St Joseph Church by generous parishioners. The pianists/organists thank you so much!!

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.
