St Edward Catholic Church
Striving to the live the Gospel in our lives, our families and our community.
SACRAMENT: An efficacious sign of grace, instituted by Christ and entrusted to the Church, by which divine life is dispensed to us through the work of the Holy Spirit. The sacraments are seven in number: Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, Penance or Reconciliation, Anointing of the Sick, Holy Orders, and Matrimony.
“New Church” dedicated in 1961
The history of the Catholic Faith in Chillicothe goes back to the late 1800’s when the Mooney Family offered the use of their property to hold masses. Traveling priests en route between Chicago and St Louis would visit the Mooney homestead in Rome, IL (just south of Chillicothe) to celebrate the sacraments and minister to the faithful.
In 1961, the current Church building was dedicated.
St Edward’s Community Events
Many of our Parish events are held in Longman Hall.
At this time, we don’t have enough staff resources to rent the hall to outside groups. Parish Groups will be asked to clean/sanitize the Hall after every use, per guidelines… We apologize for the inconvenience!
What we celebrate defines us!
“Culture gets its vibrancy from what the community celebrates. Do we celebrate big feast days? Weddings? Baptisms? Every Sunday is an invitation from God, Who is the source of all life, to be renewed for the week ahead!”~Fr Matthew Deptula, Pastor of St Edward Catholic Church
