FACC Christmas Basket Blessing

RACC Christmas BasketThe Freeport Area Church Cooperative has completed the sign-up for its annual Christmas Basket Blessing. St Joseph Church is being asked to provide 250 boxes of macaroni and cheese and St Mary Church is being asked to provide 250 cans of green beans to help fill the baskets. Any excess items will be incorporated into FACC’s food pantry, which is desperately low on food. Additionally, if you are interested in supplying gifts for the baskets, please call Robert Varner at FACC at 815-233-0435 (ext. 1). Please bring your donations to church by Sunday, December 16.
Delivery of the baskets to those who signed up will be Saturday, December 22, from 10:00am until completed. We will deliver from Holy Family Community Center. Volunteer delivery drivers are needed.
If you have any questions concerning this year’s Christmas event, contact Dean Wright at FACC at 815-233-0435 or by email at deanfacc@aeroinc.net.

Rest With Jesus and Pray

Father Barr was on a Steubenville retreat with young people from the Freeport area.

Father Don Lund was gracious enough to fill-in for Father Barr at the 10:30 Mass on July 17. Father Lund did a great job in tying in last week’s readings, the readings for the 17th and the readings for next week’s liturgy into one meaningful sermon. We hope you enjoy Father Lund’s homily.  Father Barr will be with us next Sunday.

Please enjoy this homily.
