Extraordinary Minister Training

Training for new Extraordinary Ministers of Communion will take place Monday, February 27th at 7:00pm.  Ministers must be confirmed, church-going Catholics in good standing with the Catholic Church.  If you are interested in serving our parish in this way and would like to be considered for this ministry, please RSVP to Joanne Johnson at jmariej3@yahoo.com.  (Note: If you served in this capacity at another parish, you still must attend this training in order to serve at SES).

Lenten Giving Project

Each Lent, as a parish family, we share in a Lenten Giving Project.  It is a way that we, as a community, can respond to the Lenten practice of almsgiving and reaching out to the poor and needy.  This Lent we have chosen to partner with The Quinn Community Center of St. Eulalia Parish in Maywood, Illinois. The Quinn Community Center has, for the past few years, reached out to the people of Maywood, and Broadview in extraordinary ways.  The Center provides these communities with a resource of activities ranging from educational opportunities, outreach and assistance programs, social activities, and more.  Children find a safe place to be among good mentors and friends, families find support and assistances in meeting the basic needs of life, and the homeless have found a place to stay and a meal to eat.  The QCC, with Christ at its core, has found a way to become a fundamental part of the communities it serves. I encourage you to check out their Facebook page, www.facebook.com/quinncommunitycenter, and their website, www.quinncenter.org, to learn more about the people, activities, and life of the center.

Donation bags will be distributed on Ash Wednesday, March 1. 
Additional bags will be available in the RE Office. 
Donations should be brought back to Church on Palm Sunday, April 8/9

Lenten Bible Study
The Passion and Resurrection Narratives of Jesus

This study compares the particular insights found in the passion and resurrection accounts of the four gospels. The core of our faith incorporates both the pain of the cross and the hope of the resurrection into daily living.  We will be using the Little Rock Scripture Study Set entitled The Passion and Resurrection Narratives of Jesus (available at littlerockscripture.org or 1-800-858-5434 for $14). This study has seven sessions, incorporating an introductory session and 6 lessons. The Study Set includes a Study Guide by Jerome Kodell, OSB, and a commentary, The Passion and Resurrection Narratives of Jesus, by Stephen J. Binz. It will start on Tuesday, March 7 and will finish on Tuesday, April 25 (we will not meet during Holy Week). There will be a morning session that starts at 9 AM and an evening session that starts at 7:30 PM. Both sessions will cover the same material. This study will be facilitated by Linda Hill, a graduate of the Biblical Institute of the Diocese of Joliet. Please contact Linda Hill at smandlsh@sbcglobal.net or 630-527-9045 to register or if you have any questions.
