Praying for Vocations

Please join us in the church as we pray for an increase in vocations on Saturday, July 13th at the 11am Holy hour.

 

Prayer To Know One’s Vocation

Lord, my God and my loving Father, you have made me to know you, to love you, to serve you, and thereby to find and to fulfill my deepest longings. I know that you are in all things, and that every path can lead me to you. 

But of them all, there is one especially by which you want me to come to you. Since I will do what you want of me, I pray you, send your Holy Spirit to me: into my mind, to show me what you want of me; into my heart, to give me the determination to do it, and to do it with all my love, with all my mind, and with all of my strength right to the end. Jesus, I trust in you. Amen

Sorry for the inconvenience

 

Once again we are offering our Cash Raffle. You have the chance to win Cash every day during the month of July.

How it works: A ticket is only a $20 donation, OR when you purchase 5 tickets at once, you get a free ticket. Each day in July we will draw 3 winners. $150, $50, and $25. Winner’s names will go back in the pot after each drawing. So, you have the chance to win 3 times a day or 93 times in July. Think of all those chances! Each day’s winner will be called and also their name will be posted on www.galesburgcatholic.com. For more tickets call Corpus Christi -309-343-8256.

Proceeds from the raffle will go towards the replacement of our exterior doors. Last year we replaced the entrance on the South side with an automatic power assist door with handicapped accessibility. The remainder of the doors are ordered, in order to be assured of uniformity. Should you wish to “sponsor” a door, please contact the office.

Your continued support and generosity is greatly appreciated.

The 2019 Annual Diocesan Appeal:

 

Pledges to date are $44,172 towards our goal of $49,513.  Still short $5,341 of goal.  Thank you to all who have generously pledged. Please remember the parish will have to make up any shortfall. Any monies received over our goal come back to the parish and will go towards our new exterior doors
