The 160th Anniversary of the founding of St. Benedict Church:
This year - 2019 - is the 160th Anniversary of the founding of St. Benedict Church. In the Spring of 1859, Father John Hogan was attending to a settlement of 200 Irish immigrants when the first wooden church, named in honor of St. Benedict, was built in what would later become known as the "Irish Wilderness". Parish celebrations are planned for July and August 2019. More History-->

St. Benedict's Poor Box
Thank you to all who support the poor box! 100 percent of current donations to the poor box are given to a local charity, Ripley County Backpacks for Friday Program, which works in cooperation with the SEMO Food Bank and local schools to send home each weekend a backpack filled with non-perishable snacks and other foods for students in need and their families. A donation of $350 feeds a family of four during an entire school year. Even a few dollars could make a difference in the life of a hungry child!
Eucharistic Adoration on Saturdays: Every Saturday 7:30-11:30 PM. First Saturday of each month 9:30 AM to 5:00 PM and 7:30 PM to 11:30 PM.
Everyone is encouraged to come and spend quiet time with our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament during Eucharistic Adoration.
