St. Mary of Vernon

Fr. Joe's Last Mass Celebration Luncheon

On Sunday, June 30th Fr. Joe will celebrate his final Mass as Pastor of St. Mary of Vernon at the 11:15am Mass. To celebrate this occasion the parish will host a lunch in the Parish Center immediately after to thank him for serving us as our Pastor for 21 years! 

Volunteers to help set up, serve and clean up are needed.  See below for tasks and time slots.

We invite all parishioners to join us for this special Mass and lunch. Since lunch will be catered reservations are required.  Go to to RSVP, even if you have signed up to help.

Please note & spread the word that the doors to the Parish Center will not open until Mass ends and Fr. Joe processes over.

Feel free to call the parish office 847-362-1005 if you have questions.

Thank you in advance for your help.
