Upcoming Events Emphasizing Lay Leadership Formation

______________________________________________________________________________


For parish leaders

Adult Faith Leadership Association presents:
"Advent-What Are We Waiting For?"
with Sr. Janet Schaffler, OP


Thursday, December 7, 2017  12:45-3:00PM
Blanchette Catholic Center, Crest Hill

It is very true that Advent is a time of waiting.  What are we waiting for?  Perhaps, it's deeper and broader than what we usually think.  Perhaps, it includes some extravagant promises-more than we ever imagined. We'll take time during this Advent afternoon to reflect from a perspective which might shed new light, offer some further reasons, and provide us with memorable celebrations for the season.  Register online for December 7th or contact Karen in the REO at 815-221-6147.

For parish leaders

Adult Faith Leadership Association presents:
"Making a Culture of Missionary Discipleship in your Parish"
with Tim Glemkowski of L'Alto Catholic Institute


Thursday, December 7, 2017  10:00AM - 11:30 AM
Blanchette Catholic Center, Crest Hill

We've all read the books and attended the seminars, and we all agree with Pope Francis that our parishes are called to make “missionary disciples”. The question still remains for many of us: HOW? In this session Tim Glemkowski, the president of L'Alto Catholic Institute, suggests five keys strategies for creating a parish of missionary discipleship without burning out. This morning will have practical discussions and applications as well as time for Q&A. Come engage with Tim and parish colleagues in the diocese who are interested in this vital topic! To register, call Karen Wojnarowski at 815-221-6147.

Adult Faith Leadership Association presents:
"Missionary Leadership" with Keith Strohm


Thursday, January 18, 2018  9:00-3:00PM
Blanchette Catholic Center, Crest Hill

The greatest need in the Church today is for leaders who are able to build and sustain cultures of discipleship and mission in the parish.  This is not only a matter of personal conversion, but pastoral conversion, a fundamental rethinking of our assumptions, attitudes, and approaches to ministry.  Join us for Keith Strohm who will provide participants with a framework to journey through this pastoral conversion and wrestle with its implications on a personal and communal level.  Coming soon: Online registration and Flyer.  For more information contact Karen in the REO at 815-221-6147.
