Upcoming Events Emphasizing Lay Leadership Formation


Fr Ronald Rolheiser

For parish leaders
"How the Church Can Cultivate Unity in a Culture of Divisiveness" - Fr. Bob Miller
Blanchette Catholic Center, Crest Hill

October 25, 2018 - 12:45PM-3:00PM

America has never been so divided. Issues like race, politics, sexual identity issues and religious/ecumenical differences keep us apart from one another. In the face of this cultural 'battle' the Church has so very much to offer. Learn what churches can do to foster unity in the community.  Contact Karen Wojnarowski for more details.  REGISTER HERE.

For parish leaders
"Making Room for God in the Busyness" - Becky Eldredge
Blanchette Catholic Center

December 6, 2018 - 12:45PM-3:00PM

Becky, author of Busy Lives, Restless Souls, will lead us during the Advent season  to ask “How are we called to make room for God?” She believes we are part of bringing God into the world through the calls of our life and will show us the connection. You will bring back ways to talk about this with the busy people you minister with in your parish.  Contact Karen Wojnarowski for more information.
