Divine Mercy 
Perpetual Adoration Chapel 
now open!!!

The Perpetual Adoration Chapel has been redecorated during the time it has been closed.  The project is now complete and the adoration chapel in the Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish Activities Center is now re-open for prayer and adoration.  

Come to the chapel to:
-  some quiet time in prayer
- light a votive candle and pray 
before the new image of the Divine Mercy
- pray along with the Divine Mercy Chaplet which will automatically be played in song at 3:00 PM and 3:00 AM

Check out the before, during, and after montage of the redecoration process in the chapel.  

Thanks much to all of the generous benefactors who made this project possible.  Thanks also to the student from the Knox College/Carl Sandburg Newman Club, our parish youth group, Knights of Columbus, and parishioners who helped to put in the effort and work to complete the redecoration process.  

We hope that you'll find the Perpetual Adoration Chapel to a quiet and beautiful place of prayer.

Upcoming Events

St. Joseph Cemetery Mass 
is moving...

Beginning Sunday, November 1, the 7:30 AM Mass which has been celebrated outside all summer and fall will move to Saint Patrick's Church (858 S. Academy Street).   Due to the decreasing temperatures, we're no longer to celebrate Mass out at the Cemetery on Sunday mornings.   We hope that you'll join us in St. Patrick's Church for 7:30 AM Mass.  

While our parish staffs will attempt to take appropriate precautions consistent with the advice of public health authorities, parishioners and guests should understand that they assume the risk of contracting COVID-19 anytime they enter a public space since such precautions do not eliminate the risk of infection.
