PIT Crew (Parish Intercessory Team)
The Most Essential Gift: Prayer!

After our hiatus, we are excited to be re-establishing
this wonderful ministry in our parishes!

              We know that with the Lord, all things are possible.
We also know that with prayer, God’s Will comes to life in ways unimagined.

      We Invite YOU to be a Part of the Mission!

The Holy Spirit is moving in a beautiful way at our parishes;  prayer will play a vital role in this movement.

The Parish Intercessory Team’s primary focus is to pray daily for Historic St Patrick & Holy Trinity
wherever, whenever, and however they pray.

The secondary gift of the Parish Intercessory Team is optional monthly gatherings where members could come together to pray as a community and explore different prayer styles.

       If you feel that the Lord may be inviting you into this special ministry,
please contact Nicole Henson,
 Coordinator of Evangelization & Adult Faith,
at nhenson@holytrinitybloomington.org or 309-829-2197.

The Central Illinois Chapter of the Christ Child Society is a volunteer organization that was initiated by the Most Reverend Daniel Jenky, C.S.C., Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Peoria in 2005 and chartered in 2008. The goal for our Bloomington circle is to support those families who have chosen life for their newborns, sometimes in the most difficult circumstances.

Our members donate their time and talent to assemble layettes, which are given to at-risk families for their newborn babies.  We hand-make baby blankets, sleep sacks, receiving blankets, burp cloths and hooded towels We include many purchased items that are sized for newborns.  Hospital social workers and/or nursing staff determine need and distribute accordingly. Over 3000 layettes have been given to newborns in need.

We need your help! Please consider donating the following:

Onesies size 0-3 months, Sleepers size 0-3 months, Infant hats, Infant washcloths, Infant socks or booties, Baby wipes, Baby wash, Size 1 diapers

We’ll have collection boxes at the main entrances of both churches and  at the ARAS Pancake Breakfast on Sunday February 10. You can also bring items to the Historic St. Patrick church office or the Holy Trinity parish center office. Thank you for your generous support of newborns and families in need.

 

Flu Precautions Come to our Parishes

Per a recent letter to all priests of the Diocese of Peoria, Bishop Jenky recommends a number of precautionary measures for us to help stem the spread of the Flu virus: suspending offering the cup; considering foregoing a hand-shake at the Sign of Peace; considering receiving Holy Communion only in the hand; also, some further cleansing methods for sacristans, etc.  Also, please consider using the hand-sanitizers in the church (at various places) when coming into church as well as leaving church.  Lastly, Bishop Jenky kindly reminds us to use some of these very same Flu precautions in other aspects of our everyday life, especially when we’re in public.  Let’s pray for our own and each other’s health during this time!
