Saint Joseph and Sons is a Northern Illinois Catholic Organization dedicated to helping the community and their maintenance needs. Through communication with parishes and Diocese headquarters, a minimum of three projects will be selected each year based on the capabilities of the group.
Father Keith Romke had been our Chaplain for over 4 years and we had been based at St. Bridget Parish in Loves Park, IL. In July, 2017, we bid adieu to Father Romke as he was assigned Pastor of St. Patrick in Dixon, IL. Father Romke had a very profound effect on the Joes. His leadership, participation, and spiritual guidance, allowed each of us to move further along our spiritual journey. We also want to thank St. Bridget Parish for their hospitality to St. Joseph & Sons.
Some of the major projects that we recently completed are:
St. Elizabeth Center Youth Building playground renovation
Poor Clares Monastery Mary Garden
Madonna Renewal Center-Freeport, IL chapel renovation
Bishop Lane Retreat Center work - Boylan HS Senior Boys Retreat
Father Ken Wasilewski has now been named our Chaplain and we are based at Holy Family Parish in Rockford, IL. Our monthly schedule at Holy Family is Mass at 6:30 am followed by 30 minutes of our meeting and 30 minutes of spiritual development.
Finally, we are updating this blog and Facebook site. Please bear with us as we make improvements to these sites.
Continue to check back to this site. We will be adding additional information, pictures from the projects, upcoming projects, and a lot more.
