During his visit to Holy Resurrection in Palatine, Bishop Paul tonsured Steve Chobanian a reader and blessed him, Philip Neznanov, and Elias Belagratis to wear the Orarion as Senior Altar Servers.

On Tuesday, April 10th the Midwest Family Web Page went online. Things will be quite thin in terms of content, but we hope to build that up over the next 3 to 9 months. Bishop Paul asks for your patience as this site develops. For more info, see the PR release on the DOM web page: /news_180322_1.html

Rectors, and Treasurers, do complete the 2017 Stewardship report sent out by the Stewardship work group in late February. That information is needed to properly prepare our proposal for the Diocesan Assembly this up coming October. You can access the Percentage Assessment Calculation Sheet by going to his link: /downloads.html

If you are holding any special events or celebrating any special services, and would like to share this news with the diocese, contact Fr. John Matusiak to put the event on the diocesan web page. Gather what photos you have and send those to Fr. John along with some bullet points of facts concerning the event. That way he can do a brief write up of the event. Fr. John can be reached at:
