We will have our Parish Lenten Mission next Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, March 4th, 5th, and 6th, at 7PM in the Church. The Title of our Parish Lenten Mission is “Be Sober And Vigilant”. Fr. Anthony Jelinek will give the Mission.
Here is an outline of the Mission:
Sunday, March 4th: “Climbing The Mountain Of Our Faith”
Monday, March 5th: “Take Up Your Cross And Follow Me”
Tuesday, March 6th: “Our Sanctiﬁcation”
Also, Fr. Anthony will be hearing Confessions from 6-6:45PM before each Mission.
Here is a brief bio of Fr. Anthony:
Father Anthony Jelinek, a native of Hungary, was ordained June 19, 1973. He worked as a Parish Priest for nine years. After escaping persecution in Communist Hungary in 1982, he served as a Hungarian Pastor in Milwaukee, and then as an Associate Pastor at St. Jude Parish in the Milwaukee Archdiocese. Father Anthony also had a broadcasting program on Channel 17 in Milwaukee with his Catechetical Bible Puppet Show. He served as Chaplain of St. Joseph Nursing Home for 15 years. In 1996, he began working full-time in Marytown, and helped out part-time there since 1986, and continues as to this day. Wherever Father was assigned, he founded the Family Holy Hour and Ministry which is still active currently in St. Joseph Parish in Round Lake.
With the start of the Jubilee Year in 2000, Father became an active member of the American Association of Christian Counselors. During his Priestly life, he has counseled couples and individuals with diﬀerent issues and concerns, and continues to do so. Father Anthony regularly gives numerous retreats for diﬀerent Religious Orders across the United States. Father has also given many Laity Retreats, and continues to serve as the Spiritual Director of The Legion of Mary for Lake County, Illinois. Father also led many Pilgrimages to Religious Shrines throughout the world. Father’s favorite sports are soccer, ice hockey, basketball, ping pong, and tennis. He loves his Priesthood, and those people to whom God has entrusted his Priestly Service and Ministry.
