...Easter 2017...

“Let the risen Jesus enter your life, welcome Him as a friend, with trust: He is life! If up until now you have kept Him at a distance, step forward. He will receive you with open arms. If you have been indifferent, take a risk: you won’t be disappointed. If following Him seems difficult, don’t be afraid, trust Him, be confident that He is close to you, He is with you and He will give you the peace you are looking for and the strength to live as He would have you do.” 

           -Pope Francis’ Easter Vigil Homily

 ULTREYA

SATURDAY, APRIL 22ND

at IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY

What is an Ultreya? It’s an opportunity to see what a CURSILLO weekend is all about. Time to build a closer, personal relationship with the Lord. Mass will be celebrated at 4:30 pm. Then there will be 2 shorts talks one by a lay person and the other by a member of the clergy, followed by a few minutes of sharing in small groups.  The evening will end with a social hour in the parish hall with good food and time to greet old and new friends.  If you have any questions feel free to contact the Host/Hostess from Immaculate Heart, Christie Kisler, Kevin & Sue Hickey, and David & Lisa Lindstrom. An Ultreya is open to all adults whether you’ve made Cursillo or not. Please plan to join us.  If you would like to provide a treat for the evening please contact Christie @ 309-341-1765.
