RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION OF ADULTS
We've seen these initials a number of times in our bulletin, haven't we? What do they mean? The formal definition is The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults - but there's more to it than that.

If you could ask one of the candidates from Easter of 2017, the above definition would be embellished a great deal.

The program is focused on helping adults who are thinking of becoming Catholic as well as adults who may be coming back to Church after being away for a while. The program also accommodates adults who want a renewal and update concerning all that is happeining in our Church today.

This takes place in a series of gatherings geared to enlightened and renew for all 'What it means to be Catholic'. We gather as friends, no formal classes or tests.

All are welcome to come and join us with your questions on Tuesday, September 12th in the Gathering Place at 7:30 p.m. If you would like to know more about our Church today, please come! For more information please call the parish office at 847-253-5353.

OLW youngsters were on duty at the St. Mark's food drive in the OLW parking lot. While the kids relaxed, Dad Mike Gilbert carried bags from one of the OLW donors' cars. If you look closely, you can see the license plate on the car identifies the driver, long-time OLW parishioner and music master, Joan Drolet.
