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

St Mary’s All Saints Day & All Soul’s Day

Leave a comment

Due to the way the calendar dates for All Saints Day and All Soul’s Day fall this year, St Mary’s will be observing these special days as follows:
St Mary’s will have an All Saint’s Day Mass on Friday,
November 1, at 5:00pm.
At the 8:00am Mass on Sunday, November 3, we will celebrate the lives of those who have died this past year, and also have candles lit for those who have paid for candles for their family members.
If you wish to purchase candles for the November 3 celebration for the deceased members at St Mary’s, be sure to have your money into the office by October 20. St Mary’s will purchase the candles for members who have died this past year.
Thank you for your understanding.

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.
