St. Mary's Welcomes New Priest

St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Taylorville has a new minister.  Reverend Piotr Kosk comes to St. Mary’s from Highland, Illinois.  He moved to the USA, approximately six years ago and is excited to be in Taylorville. 

 

 

Father Kosk says that the invitation from the Bishop was so warm and inviting, Kosk felt honored to come and help out with the shortage of Priests in the area. He says he had to make some adjustments though moving to the US.

 

 

Father Kosk encourages people to come back to church. He is concerned that COVID has kept a lot of people away.

 

 

One thing that Father Kosk says needs to be improved on is the roof. He highlighted some of the other changes he hopes to see over the next five years. 

 

 

Father Kosk is also helping out with St. Rita’s Catholic Church in Kincaid and Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Stonington. Father Kosk can be reached at (217) 824-8178. You can also visit www.stmarytaylorville.org.
