Our Churches:

St Aloysius and St Joseph

Our Mission Statement:We come together from three different parishes to form a community of faith whose patron is St. Isidore the Farmer.  Our Ancestors have given many of us a German work ethic and a bond with the soil. We form a sacramental people in the Effingham Deanery of the Roman Catholic diocese of Springfield in Illinois. The Sacred Scriptures and the sacraments of the Church sustain us as we strive to know, love and serve the Lord;  forgive those who offend us;  welcome the stranger;  bring the gospel to the marketplace;  and develop hearts that are filled with gratitude. We endeavor to be instruments of the Holy Spirit in building the kingdom of God.
