CFM Announcements January 2020

In our January meeting, we will be covering Chapter 5 – Dealing with Conflict. Please review the chapter and reflect on the Observe, Judge and Act pieces of the reading.

The Leader’s Meeting starts promptly at 7:00 p.m. in the Gathering Space to get the Leader Couples to the host homes by 8:00 p.m. to start the group meetings by 8:15 p.m. We are trying to be mindful of some of our member’s curfews.

Apologies in advance that Chris and I will be out of town for this meeting, with the Loy’s filling in at the Leader meeting.

Last month, I highlighted the A.H. Village’s Holiday Assistance Program. There is an additional need to help 2 area families that have exceeded the initial resources of the village plan. If you are interested in finding out how to help, please contact Health & Human Services at 847-368-5791 or email

St. Raphael CFM Letter Writing: Last month we delivered over 80 letters to one of Fr. Louis’s parishes CFM Groups. As you may know, he is responsible for several parishes in Oshkosh, and another (smaller) group is also starting CFM. I will have a list to distribute for your groups this meeting.

Thank you,
John and Christina Ourednik
