During the weekend September 19/20 both our parishes, St. Patrick Church of Merna and St. Mary Church in Downs will be participating in the Annual Diocesan Appeal (ADA) for the Diocese of Peoria. As followers of Christ, we are called to respond to God’s grace in our lives and to serve one another. The ADA is an opportunity to respond to His grace by sharing our gifts and so transform lives throughout the diocese. Please give generously as God has given to you.

For information on what to expect during these upcoming weeks and to learn more about the Annual Diocesan Appeal, please visit the Parish website
