National Night of Prayer for Life
Please join us on the evening of Saturday, December 8th as we participate in the National Night of Prayer for Life at Ss. Cyril & Methodius Church on Sobieski Street in Lemont. Between 8pm and midnight, there will be Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, prayer of the rosary, and time for private prayer. Please stop by and pray for our Church and that all life will be respected.
2018 Century Club Ornaments will be available on December 8th. Donation letters and reservation envelopes are in the mail to parishioners, or can be found on the church side-tables. This year's theme includes a window of St. Patrick Church overlooking our Blessed Mother in the sanctuary: "Nourished by the Eucharist"
on one side, and a restored portion of the altar depicting the Last Supper as it looked in 1917 on the other. We hope you enjoy the look of this year's ornament. We ask for a $100 donation for the ornament (or whatever you can afford). Though it feels like winter already, this is our creative fall fundraiser.
Our next Family/Children's Mass is on Sunday, January 6th at 10am. Children are invited to take part in the Entrance Procession, Homily, Eucharistic prayers with the priest, and Offering of Gifts. This has become a popular casual Mass with a very child-friendly atmosphere. All are welcome to come celebrate!

Newlyweds Experience for Tomorrow Post Marriage Ministry is active at St. Patrick Parish! Network with other recently married couples from the Lemont area. Our goal is to build our NEXT community relationships for couples and their children. Please contact the Parish Office for more information: 630-257-4640.
Are you divorced, or divorced and remarried civilly, and wish to have that previous marriage annulled? It is possible that the circumstances of your former marriage may be such that an annulment can be more easily granted than you believe. Do not believe the horror stories which other people may have told you. Call Sue in the Parish Office if you wish to discuss the possibility of being granted an annulment in the Archdiocese of Chicago.
Do not let remarriage keep you from receiving Holy Communion. The will of our Lord Jesus Christ for you is to regularly receive His body and blood, providing strength to continue life's ever-changing journey. The more difficult your journey, the greater your need to receive this gift! Make an appointment with Fr. Kurt if you wish to discuss your own situation in relation to the sacraments.
