Resources for Prayer and Engagement during Coronavirus COVID-19


 

THE LATEST INFORMATION on Masses from Fr. David, published in the May 17th bulletin and the May 2020 St. John & St. Kilian Update mailed to parishioners homes in late May.  Click here.


 

Many people are understandably experiencing uncertainty and anxiety due to the spread of COVID-19.  Please use these Masses and Resources freely and share with others. A sense of community is of the utmost importance.  We must encourage each other, take care of each other, pray for each other and stay connected to our faith during this time of social distancing.

The severity of the situation has forced our leaders to make significant changes in our daily lives including suspending publicly celebrated Masses. Recognizing these changes likely leave us even more in need of God’s grace, the USCCB (United States Conference of Catholic Bishops) and other Catholic partners have generously made their resources available to support prayer during these difficult days.

The Parish Office is closed until further notice.  You can contact the parish by phone 24 hours a day at 262- 623-1262Please, DO NOT TEXT!  Leave a message, or email laplanted@archmil.org.  You can also leave a message on the parish answering machine at 262-673-4831.
