The Freeport Knights of Columbus would like to thank the local Freeport parish community for their generous charitable spirit with two recent drives to aid several great causes. The recent drive to support intellectual disabilities (Tootsie Roll drive) netted just over $5,200 to support The Presence Life Center, Malcolm Eaton, and Special Olympics in the Freeport area. On October 6, our Pork Chop dinner and other contributions netted us $1,500 towards the Madonna Renewal Center. Our council goal is to continue to support the parish and Freeport area community. Any Catholic male over 18 interested in becoming a part of the Knights of Columbus, please contact Tom Willison at 815-275-7111.

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.
