MISSION APPEAL / COLECTA PARA LAS MISIONES

October 16 & 17 / 16 y 17 de octubre, 2021

This Mission Appeal supports several important efforts in the Church in one combined collection. Instead of separate parish collections for World Mission Sunday; Missions in the United States; the Church in Latin America; and the Society for the Propagation of the Faith, this one opportunity allows you to support them, the Rockford Diocesan Priests’ Pension and our needy Catholic elementary schools, all at once.

Please look for your Mission Appeal envelope in the mail and bring it to Mass with you, or donate online at: www.rockfordiocese.org/donate

Thank you for your generous gift!

Esta Campaña Misionera apoya varios esfuerzos importantes en la Iglesia en una Colecta combinada. En lugar de colectas parroquiales separadas para el Domingo Mundial de las Misiones; las Misiones en los Estados Unidos; la Iglesia en América Latina; y la Sociedad para la Propagación de la Fe, esta oportunidad te permite apoyarlas, y a la Pensión de Sacerdotes Diocesanos de Rockford y nuestras escuelas primarias católicas necesitadas, todas a la vez.

Favor de traer a misa el sobre que le llego por correo de la Colecta para las Misiones o también pueden hacer su donación en línea: www.rockforddiocese.org/donar.

¡Gracias por su generosidad!

NCBC Statement on COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates (Amended)

AmmendedStatementOnVaccineMandates 23Aug21


YOUR HELP IS NEEDED TO MAINTAIN PARENTAL NOTIFICATION FOR OUR DAUGHTERS!

Informed parents = protected daughters! The Parental Notice of Abortion Act is a proven, commonsense law that protects our minor daughters from medical injury and sexual exploitation, and keeps parents informed about their minor daughter’s wellbeing. Two identical bills have been introduced in the Illinois General Assembly to repeal this law – one in the Illinois House (HB 1797) and one in the Illinois Senate (SB 2190). Please contact your State legislators to save this law from being repealed and to keep parents in the loop! Act now! There is a strong possibility supporters of this bill will wait until the last days of this session, Memorial Day Weekend, to call it to committee and for a vote. Visit the Parents for Protection of Girls website at www.savepna.com. to contact your legislators in Springfield, and click on their “Contact your State Rep and Senator” button. It takes less than 5 minutes to contact both your IL State Senator and your IL State Representative.


Illinois Bishops Urge Action on Invest In Kids Act

The six Catholic Bishops of Illinois have issued a letter urging Catholics to contact their legislators to help preserve the value of the Invest In Kids Act.
