Every year our church is adorned with beautiful poinsettias for the Christmas season. If you would like to have a poinsettia placed in memory of a loved one, please turn in a donation and the individual’s name to the parish office or the Welcome Center.

A $10 donation is suggested. Please use the special envelopes found in your monthly packages, or make the donation using online giving! Extra envelopes can also be found at the Welcome Center at St. Patrick Church of Merna and at the front doors at St. Mary Church in Downs.

All dedications must be submitted by Monday, December 16th in order to be recognized in the bulletin. For more information, please call the parish office at 309-662-7361.
