COVID-19 has put many challenges to our fundraising activities. All our fundraising activities except Spaghetti Dinner were cancelled. Help us out by donating today.

Zelle Donations: 815-616-9672.


A monthly indoor Rummage Sale continues at MRC every third Friday/Saturday of the month. This has witnessed tremendous outpouring of support from the local community. All items sold are donated and remain a steady source of fund. What we cannot use, we donate to others; an amazing opportunity to pay back and pay it forward.


Every November witnesses a FUN NIGHT of dancing with The MADDMEN (formerly the Nomads) -a seasoned veteran of the Northwest IL Music scene since the ’50s & ’60s, who donate their time to benefit MRC. The “Blue Nuns” rock it out with family and friends. It is a Fun and community get together, as well as raised funds for MRC. We remain grateful to the MADDDMEN, who donate their Music Skills and the EAGLES CLUB that allow us the use of their amazing facility for free. It is has been cancelled for 2020 because of the pandemic.


Thanks to our amazing volunteers -Our Fundraising Chair – Colleen Fenn and her great TEAM (Mary, Sue, Pat, Jane, Louise, Barb, Margaret). Oh I cannot forget behind the scene great men and women Rich, Roger, Eldon, Andy, Roger, Angela, Dina, Eve, Mary Jane, the Harringtons, our Pastors Fr. Barr and Fr Anderson, and others! It is just one BIG FAMILY. We owe them our continued prayers. The presence of the many young children ages 5-12 who enthusiastically and devotedly served, cleaned up tables, as well as help count the money make this Dinner very special.

Prepare for this dinner in 2021- Date: Tuesday, February 16, 2021.
