COSTA CATHOLIC ACADEMY’S Annual Appeal Drive is underway. Parish members and other people associated with Costa Catholic Academy will get an Appeal letter in the mail soon. Catholic Education has been offered in Galesburg since 1879. Although we had a good year in 2017-2018, we need to have a better year fiscally this year and start securing our future. We need your help now to help bridge the gap in our budget, to consistently end each fiscal year with a positive financial balance, and to allow us to continue to provide the best Catholic Education achievable. We are asking every alumnus/alumna, family member, and friend of our great institution to give at least $100 right now so that we can secure our future and continue to offer the highest quality Catholic education to current and future students. The Annual Appeal will end on October 8, 2018 and you can give by check or go online at www.costa-galesburg.net to contribute with a credit card. Thank you in advance for your continued support of Costa Catholic Academy.

Ongoing Meal Train for our Galesburg Priests

 

We would like to offer one healthy and homemade meal per week to 

Father Miller, Father John Baptist, and Father Riordan to support them in their busy schedules and say thank you for all they do for us.

To keep the process efficient, we will organize the meals around one day per week and have one central drop off location.  We are hoping it also fosters some shared dinners for them!  

If you are interested in participating or would like more information, please contact Jenn Moffitt at 309-621-3995 or [email protected]

For more information on the Rachel's Vineyard Retreats in our Diocese please click here.

Rachel’s Vineyard weekends for healing after abortion are offered throughout the year in locations across the United States and Canada, with additional sites around the world. Rachel’s Vineyard is a ministry of Priests for Life.  The Catholic Diocese of Peoria sponsors two retreats each year which are open to men and women of all faith backgrounds.

The program is an opportunity to examine your abortion experience, identify the ways that the loss has impacted you in the past and present, and helps to acknowledge any unresolved feelings that many individuals struggle with after abortion. Because of the emotional numbness and secrecy that often surrounds an abortion experience, conflicting emotions both during and after the event may remain unresolved. These buried feelings can surface later and may be symptoms of post abortion trauma.
