PILGRIMAGE
OCTOBER 9-19, 2017
As we celebrate our parish's 150th anniversary this year, Fr. Jim would like to lead a pilgrimage to Rome and Assisi. The estimated cost for this pilgrimage is $4,500 per person. This price covers flights, hotels, fees, and two meals a day for 10 days. We are taking a little poll to see who is both interested and capable of going on this pilgrimage. To continue planning with the tour company we will need about 20 people to make the trip possible. If you are seriously interested in going, please call Jamae Shubirg at the parish office, (618) 632-3562, or email her at jamaeshubirg@yahoo.com to be included on the list of "potential pilgrims."

MSGR. BILL HITPAS LECTURE  
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 16 AT  7:00PM
ST. NICHOLAS CHURCH

Fr. Bill Hitpas warmly invites you to attend a very important lecture as he addresses issues that the Catholic Church will address in the near future. The talk is entitled: "The Church changed 50 years ago: What have we changed and where do we go?" 
The true impact of a council normally is only understood fifty years later. This lecture looks at some of the issues facing the church about authority and reforms of the liturgy.  Admission is free and is being taped so we ask that all attendees be in their seats ten minutes before the start of the 7:00 pm lecture.
BAPTISM CLASS 
Our next Baptism class will be held Sunday,  February 19 at 1:00PM in the Parish Library. Please call the parish office if you plan to attend.
