                      OPEN YOUR HEART TO GOD

       At the Last Supper the disciples were invited to begin a new phase of their relationship with Jesus as he asked them to become His friends.  If we want to become friends with Jesus we must constantly work to make our relationship with Him better. This means we must listen to what God is trying to tell us, to be changed by what we hear and experience, and then to go share this with others.  Lent is the perfect opportunity.   This year our theme for Lent is “Open Your Heart to God.”  In lieu of having a mission speaker for a few evenings during Lent we are having small group sharing sessions. As a way to try to accommodate schedules we will have four different options for times and locations available. The program will be a 5 week program beginning the week of March 10th.   A morning session will be held on Thursdays at 9:00 AM hosted at Our Lady of Loretto, afternoon sessions on Tuesday hosted in the school at 1:30 PM.  We are adding evening sessions hosted in the St Germaine Parish Center on Tuesdays at 6:30, and we are offering suggestions for another option at the parish or to have parishioners host the process in their homes.  We would like to encourage our Parish groups and ministries to be a part of this process and we have invited members from Our Lady of Loretto to join in the process.  We know that we have much work to do after the new pastor is determined next month and building a stronger faith sharing community with our neighbors will help the Renew My Church transition.  Please allow yourself to open your heart in a new way.  Our friends are waiting to meet with us this Lent!

Please call the Parish Center if you are interested 708/636-5060 or email  Let us know which day and time would be good for you.  Give your name, phone number and email where we can contact you and your preferred day and time.  Materials will be provided.
