HELP WANTED!

DO YOU HAVE THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS IN YOU?

The Share Christmas Ministry is looking for a few good elves. Have you been a volunteer in the past, but would like to do more?  The transition from volunteer to an official ministry member (we like to call ourselves the official elves) is not difficult! The work is not hard, the hours are reasonable and there is some flexibility!  A couple of hours a week (at most) between September and the start of our schedule on November 9.  Just a couple more hours needed to help out for weekend masses up to our larger events on December 1 and December 8 where we need assistance for a scheduled period of time. You'll be guided by our veteran elves.  No prior experience necessary - just have the spirit of Christmas in you!  Have questions?  Interested in helping? Contact the Share Christmas Elves  at  SESShareChristmas@gmail.com Information on Share Christmas schedule and volunteer opportunities will be shared in September.

That Man is You!

Year 8 of That Man Is You! begins Saturday, September 7, 2019. That Man Is You! has providing life-changing guidance for the men that have been participating in it.  This program takes place Saturday mornings and tackles real issues facing husbands and fathers.  It looks at the leadership role that has been entrusted to men and addresses the temptations and struggles men face in a culture that attacks authentic manhood.  Finally, it helps formulate a plan to help men overcome these obstacles.  We start with a light breakfast and fellowship at 6:30, followed by a video and small group discussions with a hard stop at 8am.  Please contact Wayne Klein at 630.202.4400 or at wklein@kleinconstruction.net with any questions.
