  Farewell Note from Deacon Callistus                                           

August 28, 2016

  • My heart and prayers go out to those affected by the horrible flooding in Louisiana. An excellent way to help is to give to the Catholic Charities relief efforts in Baton Rouge,

  • A major forward step in the reconstruction of the church—the air conditioning vents have been put back in. I can’t say how happy I am that things are progressing so well. We have workers everywhere trying to get us back in by Thanksgiving.

  • A mailing will be going out this week to all our registered parishioners with a list of opportunities to serve or to become involved. If you are not registered but are interested, feel free to stop by the office and pick up a copy and perhaps even register.

  • We have a prayer list for any of your loved ones who are in need of special prayers or who have passed. Please contact Terri in the RE office to have a name added. (577-8782, x 122)

  • Msgr. Todd continues to improve and has been enjoying all of your well-wishes and cards.

  • Deacon Callistus will be starting his final year of study this week and I am sure would appreciate a note or card. Notes or cards can be addressed to Callistus Iyorember, University of St. Mary of the Lake, Mundelein Seminary, 1000 E Maple Ave. Mundelein, Illinois 60060. or by email:
