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

September Marian Meeting

Leave a comment

Please join us on Thursday, September 11, as we “take a step back in time.” We will meet at 6:00pm at the Stephenson Co. Historical Museum, 1440 S Carroll Ave.,
for a private tour of the Taylor Mansion and the Toy Museum. Some exhibits of special interest are items from the Time Capsule removed from Freeport City Hall, the ten-foot replica of the Arcade doll house, and Charissa Taylor Bass’ richly illuminated book, “Songs of the Centuries.” Those who do not wish to go to the second floor will have the opportunity to browse the gift shop or further enjoy the illuminated book which has been digitized. There will be plenty of seating available and we will be in small groups so that hearing should not be a problem.
Parking is available in the rear of the museum grounds. A guide will meet us at the back door of the home. If you have any questions, please contact Mary Koppi, 815-232-4687.

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.
