St Patrick Catholic Church of Merna, located on the eastern edge of Bloomington, Illinois, is the foundation of our Catholic Community. 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.
