Fall Parish Bible Study starts in October!

Bible study begins Tuesday morning October9 at 9:15AM and repeats Wednesday October 10th, in the evening, at 7PM for ten sessions. The title of this fall’s bible study is “The Prophets: Messengers of God’s Mercy.”

In the DVD presentation and discussion we will consider how we are being called to a deeper relationship with God. This series places the Old Testament prophets in the context of salvation history, making their personalities and contexts easy to follow, understand, and relate to our lives.

There will be handouts for each session. We ask for a $10 donation to cover costs. You may pick up the handout for the first session ahead of time at the parish office or at the first session. Please register for the series by calling the parish office 773-525-0453.

4th Annual Fall Fest is in the books!

Thanks to all who came out, enjoyed what may have been the perfect fall evening, and helped raise funds for our amazing parish. We won’t have final numbers for another week or so but the most important part of the event was the community! From what we could tell, looks like everyone had a ncie evening.

We will be back with more in the coming week. But, again, thank you! And, if you weren’t able to make it but would like to make a donation, well, you know. We always accept those!
