Registration for Religious Education is open. Forms can be picked up during office hours from the St Joseph – St Mary Parish Office Mon.-Thurs. 8:30-3:30 and Fri. 8:00-Noon. Submit completed forms along with payment and baptism certificate before September 5 to facilitate proper class assignment. Remember that Confirmation and First Holy Communion preparation requirement is a minimum of two years. Help Needed: We need teacher aids and office assistants. You can assist in the classroom or volunteer to help make phone calls, plan events, help to file and document data, offer one-on-one tutoring or teach a class. If you volunteer, you must take the Protecting God’s Children course, which is an online course, or if we have enough signing up we can schedule a class and someone will come here and teach the class. The Diocese requires all volunteers to take this course. The first day of class is September 9, 2018. This will be a Family Session and a welcome breakfast. All classes are held in the Holy Family Community Center from 9:00am until 10:15am. For more information, please contact the Parish Office at 815-232-8271.

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.
