Changing State Law

Cardinal Cupich has written to all Catholic congregations asking us to contact our state legislators and express opposition to HB 40, which would provide for tax funded abortions, would mandate abortion coverage in state employees' health care plans, and would allow for the use of tax dollars to fund grants to organizations that perform abortions. "Tax dollars should be used to fund prenatal services for the poor and child care for working mothers, as well as expand health-care options for those in need."

Baptism Preparation Session

The next preparation session for parents and godparents of infants to be baptized is Monday March 13 from 7:00 to 8:15pm in the Parish Hall. This is for first time parents and for those who have never before attended a preparation session. Call the parish office to register. Baptisms are normally scheduled for the second and fourth Sundays of the month at 1:15pm and on the first weekend of the month during Mass.
