Dear OLH Parishioners & Friends,

Blood pressure, pulse, and cholesterol monitoring are ways in which one identifies what is happening inside our bodies. I would like to make this monitoring service available at OLH once a month after Mass. Gloria Askew, an OLH Retired Nurse, has volunteered to assist me in recruiting Retired/Active Nurses or other Health Care Workers to initiate this program. Our first meeting is scheduled for Monday evening, September 23rd, at 6:30PM in the Rectory Office. Contact Gloria or call the Rectory at: (847) 872-8778, if you wish to be part of this new wellness ministry at OLH.

Our weekly Eucharistic Adoration will be extended this week on Thursday, September 19th,

from 1PM until 8PM. The VISITING MONSTRANCE blessed by Saint Pope John Paul the Great will be in our Church to celebrate the OLH Eucharistic Adoration this week. He consecrated the vessel specifically to promote Eucharistic Adoration, and to pray for the discernment of vocations to the priestly ministry and religious life. Deacon Greg, the School, and the regular Thursday Adoration Committee are planning this special prayer for vocations. I invite OLH Parishioners, School Families, and Friends to join us in prayer this Thursday afternoon. If you would like to help prepare this special event, please contact Deacon Greg, or call the Rectory Office to volunteer your time and service.

Please join the Boy Scouts of Troop 66 and Cub Scouts of Pack 68 for their 25TH ANNUAL SPAGHETTI DINNER this Friday evening, September 20th, from 4:30PM until 7PM.

The meeting for OLH MINISTERS OF CARE is next Saturday morning, September 21st, at 9AM in the Hayes Community Room. We will share our individual experiences in our ministries to serve the Lord. Breakfast will be served. Contact Gloria Askew to confirm your plans to attend.

Next weekend, September 21st-22nd, the Second Collection supports the ANNUAL ARCHDIOCESAN SEMINARY APPEAL. The new academic year at the Mundelein Seminary began with an enrollment of 175 Seminarians. The funds collected will continue to grow the mission of Mundelein as they strive to form compassionate, well-trained priests for the future of the Church. Please be generous!

Have a blessed week!

Fr. Jim
