Welcome to the Churches of St. Patrick's & St. Anne's!

 

Online Liturgy for the Sixth

Sunday of Easter - May 22, 2022

 

Celebrated at St. Patrick's Church - St. Momence, IL

 

Fr. Pete Jankowski has been celebrating all Masses on behalf of the parishioners of St. Patrick's Church (Momence) and St. Anne's Church (St. Anne) who are not able to church. Feel free to invite others to join our Masses if they are not able to join their own parish communities – we will never get large enough to worry about too many people that come and join us (and what a wonderful dilemma it would be if they did!). 

 

Please continue to support our local parishes – we need your support to continue spreading God’s mercy during these difficult times.

 

To support the mission of St. Patrick's Church, please contact us at (815) 472-2864 or write us at 119 North Market Street - Momence, IL 60954.

 

To support the mission of St. Anne's Church, please contact us at (815) 427-8265 or write us at PO Box 470 - St. Anne, IL 60964.
