GOD'S MERCY LEADS US: 2016 Diocesan Stewardship Appeal

Every year at the end of April, the Diocese of Rockford announces the Diocesan Appeal. This year’s theme of the appeal is God’s Mercy Leads Us. This theme was chosen because we are celebrating the Jubilee Year of God’s Mercy. As the Holy Father Francis tells us, we are not only the receivers of God’s mercy, but we should be the apostles of this beautiful gift from God. We should be merciful towards others and share the good news of God’s mercy with everyone... MORE...

29APR

JOIN US FOR AN "HOUR OF POWER" (Prayer Power)

From 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm in the Sacred Heart Chapel on Friday, April 29th. Join the Joyful Stewards for an hour of prayer for our parish and the Diocesan Appeal in preparation for pledge weekend. We will pray with the theme for this year, "God's Mercy Leads Us." May Jesus, the perfect steward, show us that complete trust in Him is necessary if we are to lead a life of true discipleship and that giving of self is an important part of following Him.
