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

Starting Our New COVID-19 Response Team

Leave a comment

We are putting together a COVID-19 Response Team for those who are vulnerable to the virus and need to stay away from public activity. Since all public Masses are cancelled, we will also need to address those issues. Please be patient as we put together a plan to help serve you through all of these trials.
We plan on sending messages through email and regular mail as an initial contact, and will follow up with calling every person on our parish lists. During the phone calls, we hope to address any needs you may have and see what we have the ability to do from there. At minimum, we hope to be a companion through this time.
We are also looking at supplying some help through technology like the Parish App, website and Facebook.
Please spread the word and tell others to let Fr. Barr know if they would like to be contacted. That way we can be certain that everyone is taken care of. Fr. Barr can be reached at 815-232-8271, ext. 7.

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.
