We have been blessed with the love,

inspiration, guidance and spiritual

leadership that Monsignor Jerry

Hartlein has given to Holy

Childhood of Jesus and the

community of Mascoutah. May he

 continue to watch over and guide

us from his new home with our Loving God in Heaven.

 - December 1, 2013



                "But the souls of the just are in the hand of God, and no torment shall touch them. 

                They seemed, in the view of the foolish, to be dead; and their passing away was judged

                an affliction, and their going forth from us, utter destruction.  But they are in peace...

                they shall be greatly blessed, because God tried them and found them worthy of Himself."

               (Wisdom 3: 1-3, 5)

If school is closed due to inclement weather, there will not be a Mass or

Communion Service. You will find the school closings on Channels 2 and 5. 


At Holy Childhood, we use the gifts that God has given us,

our gifts of time, talent and treasure,

to further the Kingdom of God

here on earth.

Our Mission

To be a credible sign of Godís love and care, Holy Childhood Parish needs to be a loving, charitable and caring community that is spiritually challenging, generously welcoming and liturgically alive. We strive to reach out to those in spiritual need and basic material needs. We will be open to the ideas of others, and, with Godís help, continue to live out the Gospel message.
