This year’s theme for the 2022 Diocesan Appeal is “Do You Love Me?” – the more love we have for Jesus, the more our love for Him will motivate us to love one another. It is during this busy time of year each year that we act together as a parish and help care for the larger Church of the Diocese of Rockford – we show our love for one another.

What we give in support to the Diocesan Appeal comes back to help us in many ways! The appeal is so important to us and our Diocese. Please remember that whatever we raise beyond this goal returns to our parish. 



Updated Covid-19 and Mask Guidelines

Effective as of February 23, 2022, the use of masks at all parish functions is fully optional for all attendees. Please be respectful of the decisions made by our brothers and sisters in Christ. For the complete statement from the diocese, click HERE.
