Epiphany Celebration for the Kids of St. John Paul II Parish in Kankakee. Members of the St. James CCW will be in the narthex this weekend after all Masses distributing empty bags to be filled with toys for the Epiphany Celebration for the kids of St. John Paul II Parish in Kankakee. The collection will continue until Christmas. All are welcome to participate in this annual outreach.

Aging religious need your help. Senior Catholic sisters, brothers, and religious order priests ministered for years for little to no pay. Their sacrifices now leave their religious communities without adequate retirement savings. Your gift to today’s second collection for the Retirement Fund for Religious helps to provide medications, nursing care, and more for tens of thousands of elderly religious. Please be generous.
