Renew My Church

Renew My Church – First of  a Series 

Where we are now -- Many Catholic communities are content and comfortable meeting the spiritual needs of those in the pews. Evangelization is left up to the Spirit, and the Great Commission to 'go and make disciples” is not fully internalized. 

Where we are going -- We bring all people to Christ, reaching beyond those in the pews into the neighborhoods, ministering to the hurting and those who feel alienated. 

Our grouping parishes are St. Isaac Jogues, Niles and St. Martha, Morton Grove. We are beginning to discuss this future-focussed and mission-oriented planning process to discern new models that meet the changing demographics and mission needs in our area. Please let me know if you are interested in being a part of this new adventure. frmeanysjb@yahoo.com

Divorce and You

The Catholic Church cares deeply about those who suffer a failed marriage. In the coming weeks, we at St John Brebeuf will be bringing information forward. It will show how our living body views divorce in today's world. Soon we will be getting together as divorced Catholics to better understand our faith and what it means to us today.

Children's Choir

The fun continues with the SJB Children’s Choir who like to keep busy! The photo below shows the choir singing in the PMC for our International Night, and for the Pueri Cantores workshop and Mass at Holy Name Cathedral in early March. This yearly event is for special singing groups to learn more about their singing from a national expert and to enjoy the fellowship of other choirs from the region, culminating in massed-choir for a full length weekend Mass at the Cathedral. For more information about the choir, please call Ms. Ewa Fair (773) 551-0284. (Photos)

Share your Spirit

You can help young couples prepare for the baptism of their child. This is a perfect ministry for a married couple with children of your own. It is a joyful experience. We meet once a month on a Tuesday with couples preparing for baptism. The format is discussion with a focus on Sacrament. Call the parish office 847-966-8145.

Virtus

 

VIRTUS programs are designed to help protect children from sexual abuse.  To achieve this goal, the Archdiocese of Chicago offers the program “Protecting God’s Children.”   The sessions provide information to raise awareness and to help prevent abuse using worksheets, discussions and videos that incorporate interviews with both victims and convicted perpetrators.

The Archdiocese of Chicago requires every employee and volunteer who interacts with children to complete the program.  To comply with this requirement, St. John Brebeuf is proud to offer “Protecting God’s Children” to its parishioners and all employees and volunteers of the Archdiocese.  Group sessions are facilitated by parishioners Pam Perez and Tim Spadoni and are generally held one weeknight per month, from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m., in the May Ministry Center.
