Bishop Conlon to visit St. Margaret Mary Saturday & Sunday, November 17 & 18
From Fr. Paul:
On November 17 and 18, we are welcoming Bishop Daniel Conlon to our parish. He started visiting all the parishes when he arrived in Joliet in 2011. He is almost at the end of his first round of visits. In general, he wants to meet with parishioners and get to know us. He is open to any questions at any time during his visit. He will be most available on Sunday during the coffee and doughnut gathering in our Parish Center.
To honor the 2nd World Day of the Poor
St. Margaret Mary's At-Home Retreat is a unique opportunity for you to meet daily with a spiritual advisor and deepen your personal relationship with God.
From November 25 - 30, you will meet with a spiritual director at St. Margaret Mary for 1/2 hour each day focusing entirely on you and your relationship with God. Then, you can continue the retreat from the comfort of your home.
Please register by November 16 at (630) 369-0777. Fee $75
