JUBILEE OF MERCY AND MERCY MONDAYS
December 8, 2015 to November 20, 2016
Pope Francis has opened the Jubilee Year of Mercy. The Jubilee Year is rooted in Biblical tradition and is a time set aside to reflect on Godís loving action in the world. This Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy is under the title ďMerciful Like the Father.Ē In a particular and powerful way Pope Francis is inviting the Church to experience the amazing grace of Godís mercy. Godís mercy knows no limits and we are called to the instruments of Godís mercy in the world today. The parishes of Orland Park and Tinley Park are collaboratively working to celebrate this Jubilee Year. On the second Monday of each month we will host a Mercy Monday event. These different events will rotate among the parishes and include times of prayer, reflection and putting mercy in action. Each of these events will build upon developing a better understanding of Godís Mercy.

"The Way of Jesus"
SS. Cyril & Methodius
Lemont, IL 60439
Who was this Jewish Rabbi who changed the world and continues to capture our hearts, souls and imaginations 2,000 years later: What does it mean to follow him? John utilizes biblical texts, commentaries and wisdom to scripture scholars, as he guides us on a journey back in time to rediscover his identity and essential teachings. This presentation uses the four gospels as unique perspectives or paths as ways of being a disciple. John will also incorporate the corporal works of mercy in addition to Mary as a disciple of Jesus and His mercy. John is a gifted speaker who challenges his audiences to use his lessons as a way to reach out in love to the least among us. He is currently the Director of Retreats at LaSalle Manor Retreat Center in Plano and a Board Member of Outside da Box.
Saturday-Monday, June 11-13, 2016
