We have a growing parish that is committed to fulfilling our mission through faithfulness to Church teaching, evangelization, and preparing people to be good Catholic Christian leaders in the world. As stewards of God's love, we provide numerous opportunities for individuals to use and develop their gifts (time, talent, and treasure) for the greater honor and glory of God. If you are visiting Daylight, or just passing through, we welcome you to come and pray with us.

Lifting of the Dispensation from the Obligation of Mass. Bishop Siegel is lifting the dispensation from the Sunday and Holy Day Mass obligations in the Diocese of Evansville on June 11, the Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. The other Catholic dioceses in Indiana are lifting the dispensation on the same date. Except for unique situations, those who are otherwise healthy are obligated to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation beginning the weekend of June 12-13, 2021. If you have questions about specific needs, concerns or protocols, please contact the parish office. The obligation to attend Mass is a joyful one, reflecting the very character of who we are as Catholics. We welcome our parishioners each Sunday and Holy Day to worship God as a community of faith and to celebrate the presence of the Risen Christ among us in Word and Sacrament.
