Father James Parker | Holy Cross, Batavia, IL

Submitted by: Mariane Oros

It’s hard to put into words all the things this holy priest does for his flock. Father Parker lives his vocation to the fullest through his thoughts, words, deeds and actions. When you see Father, you see Jesus. He has lead us all through these difficult times with not even one day of interruption to live stream masses, confessions, Divine Mercy chaplets every day at 3:00 and a beautiful holy hour each night. My family and I have grown closer to our Lord through a time when many have fallen away. We owe a great deal to Father Parker and we think of him as our Father, our brother and our friend! God bless you and keep you today and always Father! We love you!

Father Parker goes above and beyond with offering masses, rosaries, chaplets, speakers, prayer groups, study groups, pilgrimages, many opportunities for confession, wonderful homilies, spiritual direction, etc....

He has changed my life forever by helping me grow in my knowledge and love for our Lord! He lives his life for Jesus and His Church.

How blessed we all are for the life of Father Parker!!!
