Our Roman Catholic Community is part of the Catholic Diocese of Peoria located in Central Illinois. Established in 1875, we are a faith-centered family, serving spiritual and temporal needs by proclaiming the Christian Message of God’s love. We have been a vital part of the fabric of surrounding farms and the eastern half of Bloomington-Normal for over one hundred thirty-five years, helping our parishioners and the community at large.
