One-Day Parish Mission

St Mary and St Joseph Parishes will be having a one-day parish mission on Sunday evening, March 13 at 5:30pm in St Joseph Church.

Fr David Peck will be the speaker. Fr Peck is a compassionate priest who has a true love for Jesus and His people. He will be giving a reflection on forgiveness.

Fr Peck is from St John Newman Church in St Charles, IL. This is the same parish that gave $10,000 to help St Mary Church pay off some debt. We are so grateful for Fr Peck’s and St John Newman’s support.

This event will fulfill the requirements for parents who have children receiving their first communion this year.

Here is Fr Peck’s  web site.
