Church Renovation

The Mass of Dedication for the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Roman Catholic Parish in Coal City was held Saturday, Nov. 18, 2017 at 4 p.m.

The newly renovated and greatly expanded building was dedicated on Nov. 18, during the 4 p.m. mass, with the Most Reverend Joseph M. Siegel, Auxiliary Bishop of the Diocese of Joliet, presiding.

“It was very important to the history of the parish to preserve the original church, a building over 120 years old. The doors of our church have, and continue to be, open to all parishioners, visiting Catholics, and vacationers in need of mass and the Sacraments. Non-Catholics are welcome to hear the gospel message,” said Father Robert Noesen, pastor of Assumption.

With heartfelt gratitude and joy, the parishioners of Assumption give thanks to Almighty God for all He has done for them.
