  • In the weeks ahead, our parish representative from Solutio, Inc., will be setting up the advertising for our website for the year.
  • Please consider participating in this effort since the revenue from the ads is what makes the website possible at no cost to the parish.
  • It’s a great way to get your name in front of the families in the parish. Advertisements may be purchased for a business, family memorial, or you can sponsor an ad supporting Catholic Charities, Knights of Columbus, Vocations, etc.
  • Please give these ideas some thought. We need and appreciate your help! If you are interested or just curious as to prices and want more information, please contact 815-345-2553 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Do You Volunteer at the Church or School?

The Diocese of Rockford has requirements for all volunteers that need to be met. Whether you volunteer as a catechist, choir member, lector, mass coordinator, funeral luncheon worker, extraordinary minister, cleaner of the church, or any other ministry of the church, we need you to read five documents and sign the accompanying form. We have 5-6 printed copies at the mass coordinators desk of the documents for those who want to check out or read on the premises. We also have the papers to sign saying you read them. Below are online versions which include the forms. You can read them online and sign the papers at church or print just the last page and sign (the last page is usually the one for the signature). Even if you have previously done the Sexual Misconduct Norms, it has been modified last January (so you need to do it again now).

 

  1. Code for the Pastoral Use of Technology and Social Media    (Español)
  2. Code of Pastoral Conduct   (Español)
  3. Guidelines for Youth and Those Working with Youth   (Español)
  4. Sexual Misconduct Norms   (Español) 
  5. Authorization to Conduct Background Check   (Español)
  6. Mandated Reporter Form


In addition to these documents and forms, we are all required to take the Protecting God's Children which is also available online in English. Click here for the information on that.
