We are searching for a grounds/facility maintenance person for next year. We would like to make this a full-time position for the individual to be in charge of all maintenance and housekeeping for both the school and the church. It will necessarily be  a physical job with 40 hours a week minimum. The ideal candidate will have skills that will help cut our maintenance and repair expenses.

If interested, please contact the church or school office, or Father Russo.




We are still in need of two volunteers to staff the PADS Shelter from 6:00—11:00 p.m. on the 1st Thursday of the months of July, August, and September. We also need two volunteers each month through the end of the year to provide meals (enough to serve between 4-8 persons). Questions? Contact Parish Coordinator Katherine Nelson at: 815-631-4069 or the PADS Shelter Director, Myles Newberry at: 815-209-7327.

The Mette's gifts of music, joy, & family life offer the boldness and innocence of youth with the wisdom and depth of life experiences. The events fall somewhere between a rock concert and a parish mission. The concert empowers all ages to pray more fully and worship more freely.
