Our parishes are united in a common commitment to support each other in the living out of the great two-fold commandment to love God and to love our neighbor (cf. Mt. 22 36-40). We are devoted to making the Holy Eucharist the "source and summit" of our lives, to foster the sacramental life and go deeper into the Word of God. We are collaborating in faith formation for all ages and in our outreach to our local community. We continue to evaluate together the best ways to serve our fellow Catholics, to welcome new members and welcome back those who have left the Church. We are commited to becoming better witnesses to Christ for everyone we meet in our daily lives.
Our parishes are blessed to have priests from the Diocese of Peoria, for a list of religious orders in our diocese please visit www.cdop.org.
