Sharing His Real Presence as we Go Forth to Evangelize

Week of October 16, 2016

This week the priests of the Diocese of Joliet are on retreat.  It is an opportunity we cherish.  I would like to thank the visiting priests who will help out to allow the Eucharist to be celebrated while the entire Diocese is on retreat together.  It is a sign of unity and strength.  Please keep the priests in your prayers.  On the last two Tuesdays we have experienced Faith Nights in the Neighborhood.  These special evenings are all unique and provide a special opportunity to talk about God.  The more comfortable we are at talking about God, the more confident we become in our faith.  I would like to thank the families who have opened up their beautiful homes to host one of these nights.  It is a blessing to share the goodness of God and His love for us.

Next Sunday we have our primary grade Focus Masses, celebrated at the 9:15 and 11:00 AM Celebrations of Eucharist.  This means the young children will be invited to come forward and sit on the floor for a children’s homily.  Please join us for these exciting opportunities.  This week there will be parent enrichment offered during the RE class times.  The Adult Faith Committee is offering this special enrichment time while your child is attending class.  Please join us for round two of Cafe Diem this week.
