How to craft Prayer Services & Special Liturgy’s for Sacraments -Todd Williamson, Director of the Office for Divine Worship, Archdiocese of Chicago– on February 3, 2021,  7-8 pm   

Planning Catholic Prayer:  Planning prayer can be intimidating. Often we might not know where to go for direction, or how to begin. This workshop will explore the basic elements of Catholic communal prayer, and how to put these elements together to help our people praise and thank the Lord. We will look at principles for developing prayer and identify resources and tools that can help anyone lead others in Catholic prayer.

FREE ONLINE BIBLE STUDY WITH FATHER JOHN KARTJE

LIVING ON THE EDGE OF CHAOS: BIBLICAL LESSONS FOR FINDING HOPE IN THE FACE OF FEAR

Check out the Q & A Live Event with Fr. Kartje on “Living on the Edge of Chaos.”

From Cain and Abel through the persecution of the early Church, the Bible is replete with accounts of fear and violence as reactions to God’s desire for humanity. What Sacred Scripture makes clear, however, is that there is a pathway through fear to hope. Join us as we carefully explore biblical examples drawn from the historical books and the prophets, Wisdom literature, the Gospels, and other New Testament texts to illustrate how the sweep of salvation history often follows a journey from order, through chaos, to a new reality shaped by the Kingdom of God.

Join Father John Kartje, rector of Mundelein Seminary, for an online Bible study exploring the pathway from chaos and fear to hope.

REGISTER HERE for this online bible study to receive the recordings when they are released later this month!
