From Fr. Paul:

On November 17 and 18, we are welcoming Bishop Daniel Conlon to our parish. He started visiting all the parishes when he arrived in Joliet in 2011. He is almost at the end of his first round of visits. In general, he wants to meet with parishioners and get to know us. He is open to any questions at any time during his visit. He will be most available on Sunday during the coffee and doughnut gathering in our Parish Center.

Please see the schedule for Bishop Conlon's visit.
