PARISH MISSION - March 1-4, 2015
This year Fr. Brian Fischer gave our parish Lenten mission. Fr. Brian is the former Director of Liturgy at Mundelein Seminary, the graduate school of theology for the Archdiocese of Chicago. Year four of the Archdiocese of Chicago Strategic Plan has been designated as the Year of the Sacraments. Throughout the year, there have been various initiatives that seek to help us come to a better understanding of the meaning of the Sacraments and how the Sacraments are meant to transform our lives. In that spirit, Fr. Brian in a series of four conferences, sought to give us a broader understanding of the role of the Sacraments in the Church and in our individual lives. The overall theme of the mission was: Finding Christ in the Place Where He Dwells: Reconsidering Sacraments and Sacramentals. On Sunday night, the mission theme was: The Sacramental Impulse: The Sacramentality of the World. On Tuesday night, the mission theme was: The Promise of the Sacraments: The Sacramentality of the Christ. On Tuesday night, the mission theme was The Seven Sacraments: The Sacramentality of the Church. On Wednesday night, the mission theme was: The End of All Sacraments: The Sacramentality of Heaven.
