The Eastern DuPage Deanery of the Joliet Diocese consists of 17 parishes that come together with a mission to create a spirit of collaboration among our parishes to foster the building of the Kingdom of God. Some examples include marriage enrichment programs, liturgical ministry fairs, combined youth groups and confirmation retreats, adult formation seminars, combined parish missions, penance services and many other exciting collaborative initiatives. As we share resources we are able to better serve you in the Parish Communities.

It is Time to Call Our Flock Back through Prayer

Loving God,

Thank you for walking with us during these difficult months.  We humbly ask you for continued healing and comfort for the sick, grieving, and lonely.  As we welcome more members of our parish family back to Church to celebrate the Eucharist in person and in community, we ask you to continue to keep us safe as we draw closer to your Son. Help us to each do our part to pray for and welcome members of our parish family to Holy Mass.  May these celebrations be a source of strength, peace, grace, and joy for all who gather at St. John the Apostle Parish.
