Marian Society Meeting & Shower for the Madonna Renewal Center

Leave a comment

The Marian Society will meet on Thursday, June 14, at 7:00pm in Berg Hall. Sister Theo and Colleen Fenn will bring us up-to-date on the renovation of the former St Francis School in order to become the Madonna Renewal Center, a residential facility for women facing unplanned pregnancies.
After several years of fundraising, setbacks and much hard work, the Blue Nuns are ready to open their doors to women in need of a safe haven. Big plans are underway for the opening day on Saturday, June 23. However, the Sisters are still in need of the following items: baby bottles, diapers (lots of diapers) sizes preemie to 2 years, onesies size 0 to 12 mos., baby rattles, and towels and washcloths for infants and adults. Please help to SHOWER the Sisters with a gift of one of these items.
If you cannot attend the meeting and wish to participate in the shower, please take your gift to the Church Office by Noon on June 14. Hostesses for the evening are Mary Connors, Toni Ginger, Betty McKenna and Sandy Roser. All women of St Joseph and St Mary Churches are invited to attend.

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.
