Last Call!!

St. Pat's Summertime Program:  Thus far, no one has stepped up to take on this ministry, SO, if at the end of this week (April 23rd) no contact has been made to the church office or Pat Downey, we will have to cancel the program.  It is with heavy heart this decision has been made, but the truth is we need help with this tradition at St. Patrick.  Pat Downey 309-537-3586.

Emmaus Days!

The end of the semester will be here very soon. For some that’s a scary thought. For the rest of us, it’s pretty consoling.  In the meantime, we’re preparing for Emmaus Days, the weekend retreat for men to help them discover God’s call in their lives.  College Emmaus Days has been a very well-kept secret among the Newman Centers of the diocese for the past few years, and we’d like to remedy that.  Click here to learn more.
