  • Pilgrimage to Ireland with Fr. Martin: A pilgrimage planned for September 25 – October 5 to Ireland, with Fr. Martin and Dcn Mike Pool. By visiting holy sites throughout Ireland, and walking in the footsteps of numerous saints, we hope your faith will be reinvigorated and renewed by this pilgrimage. We have a full itinerary, but this pilgrimage will also offer daily mass, and time for reflection throughout the day. Please contact Dcn Mike Pool (309) 287-7799 with any questions, or contact Tekton Ministries at (317) 574-4191.  Registration is available by clicking HERE.


  • Growing Disciples: Bishop Tylka has released a new video in the “Five Foundations” series – Fr. Chase Hilgenbrinck, Director of Vocations for the Diocese of Peoria, and Sr. M. Bernadette, FSGM, discuss our universal call to holiness, how to listen for the path God is calling us to take, and why they each felt called to enter the religious life – a foundational understanding essential to the Growing Disciples pastoral planning process. View the video HERE or click the “Growing Disciples” image below to view all of the videos and information released so far.

About Us

“Culture gets its vibrancy from what the
community celebrates. Do we celebrate big
feast days? Weddings? Baptisms? Every
Sunday is an invitation from God, Who is
the source of all life, to be renewed for the
week ahead!”
