St. Mary-St. Joseph Announcements
St. Mary CCW is once again sponsoring The Angel Tree project this year. We currently have 8 families with a total of 29 children that we will be helping to have a merrier Christmas. The tree will be up at Sunday Masses until all names are taken. If you would like a name but are not attending church, please call Peggy Seibring at 379-4672, message her at 217-841-1492, or email at [email protected]
We want to thank everyone for your continued support of St. Mary & St. Joseph churches. Please consider the financial health of the parish through prayers and your financial stewardship, especially during through these difficult times.
GREAT NEWS WE ARE AGAIN OPEN THIS WEEKEND!
Since we have limited seating available, we ask that everyone signup on our website to indicate your desire to go to Mass at either St. Mary or St. Joseph. We have run out of space inside the Church at St. Mary's the last couple Sundays, so it is VERY important to register. St. Joseph's has not been full nor the 11am at Our Lady of Lourdes so those are additional options. St. Mary's has overflow in the hall (livestream) and Communion will be brought over. Please register via the contact us page by Thursday and select to send the message to St. Joseph or St Mary reservation and also include how many in your family will be attending.
For those of you that would prefer to make your reservations by phone please call Dan to make reservations for St. Joseph at 217 781-2411. Call Sheila to make reservations for St. Mary at 217 417-2017 to make reservations at St. Mary church. Please sign up or call by Thursday. Thank you for your patience and cooperation. Dispensation from attending Mass is still in effect, therefore if you feel you cannot attend safely please don’t feel obligated to come.
Please Arrive 10 Minutes before Mass, so we can hold your seat
We will also be distributing Holy Communion at 11 AM in front of St. Mary Church for those who cannot attend Mass. Please be at the front steps of St. Mary by 11.
