Catholic Charities’ Back to School Fair Needs Your Help!
We are requesting your assistance to provide much needed supplies for us to distribute to those in need. St. Raymond is collecting 8 count washable markers or any school supplies you wish to donate. We are also requesting donations of any new or "like new" books appropriate for children from pre-school through 12th grade. Cash donations are also accepted and appreciated. Collection boxes will be at all church entrances the weekend of June 24/25 or you can drop off on Monday, June 26 at the Parish Office. If you have any questions or need more information, you can contact Nick, Anne or Michael Starasinich @ 815-741-3921 or bkstar5@sbcglobal.net. Thank you very much for your generous support!


The Art & Environment Ministry adorns the worship space for all of the liturgical seasons of the Church year. The Art & Environment Ministry basically "sets up and takes down", so to speak, for every major celebration and some not so major seasonal shifts that occur throughout the year.  At this time we are looking for someone to head the Art & Environment Ministry. We are looking for individuals or a group of individuals with artistic talent, creativity and design skills to help make our worship space reflect the tone of our liturgical season.
Thank you to Art & Joan Siegel for the many years they have served this ministry!!!
Please contact the parish office at 815.722.6653 for further information.



Tuition Transfer Grant is available to any public, private, home school or charter school student who transfers into a participating Catholic school. Upon acceptance, elementary students in grades 1 – 7 receive a $1,500 in total tuition discount. $1,000 in year one and $500 in year two. Depending upon the enrollment in each school, space may not be available in all grades. Students transferring from another Catholic school in the Diocese of Joliet, Archdiocese of Chicago, the Diocese of Rockford, Peoria, Springfield and Belleville are not eligible.  Students must follow the established admission policies at the schools’ discretion.


The Catholic Ministries Annual Appeal (CMAA) helps our parish and the Diocese of Joliet to provide countess ministries, programs and services to support our  friends and neighbors in immeasurable ways. Information about the 2017 CMAA and a request to make a pledge has been sent to all parishioners. Please review the materials, pray about how you can help further the ministries funded by our CMAA, and consider making the most generous gift possible. Our parish goal is $ 92,124.00. Help us to exceed this goal in paid pledges. Our parish will receive 70% of the amount over goal for use in our parish! Together, we can continue to spread the Gospel message in our Diocese through our ministries and help God hold us in His hands. Thank you in advance for your support.
