A Fun, Flexible, Faith-filled Catholic Club for girls!Little Flowers Girls’ Club® is a Catholic club for girls Kindergarten through 8th that teaches virtues through scripture, saints’ biographies and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Based on the 1906 Catholic classic “The Catholic Girls’ Guide” by Fr. F.X. Lasance, and the spirituality of St. Thérése, the Little Flower of Liseux, this beautiful, authentically Catholic program, has delighted and instilled in our girls a love of our Catholic Faith for over 25 years. Like a scouting program, girls earn badges for the virtues they have practiced, life skills they have learned. But unlike most scouting organizations, the girls learn and earn their badges through a distinctly Catholic lens. This Catholic to the Core program relies on the stories of the saints, Sacred Scripture and the Catechism of the Catholic Church.


Materials Needed:  Wreath III Members Guide and Patches.
New Members will need to purchase a Sash and Club Cross Patch. Little Flowers will meet in the Tower on the following dates: September 22, October 20, November 17, December 15, January 19, February 16, March 15, April 19 from 9:00am - 10:40am.  A special end of the year gathering is scheduled for Saturday, May 16.


This fall the Diocese of Joliet will host the Biblical Institute site at the Cathedral of St. Raymond

If you’re interested in learning the Bible, but aren’t sure if this is the program for you, please join us for a BIDJ Preview. Wednesday, August 28 from 7:00-8:30 p.m. You’ll learn a lot about this great program as well as a few things about Catholic Bible study that will help your experience of Scripture right now.Jesus invited potential disciples to “come and see.” We invite you to “come and see” if BIDJ is what you need to deepen your relationship with Scripture and with Christ.

Cyber crime has hit St. Raymond and is hitting dioceses nationwide. If/when you receive an email from Fr. Bill Dewan or Rev. William Dewan with a @gmail account as the sender requesting you to purchase a gift card,  please delete it! It is a scam! This email scam is also using other priests’ names in the diocese asking for money or gift cards. All are being sent from an @gmail account. Parishioners can and should contact the parish office to verify the legitimacy of any suspicious request they may receive or may have received.
