We are bringing in a gifted speaker and preacher, Fr. Ryan Adorjan.  He is a priest in the diocese of Joliet and has been speaking and offering parish missions since he was in seminary.  Fr. Ryan uses a great mix of stories and humor to bring his messages to life and you’re going to love what he has to offer our parish.  This mission gives us the opportunity to bring our parish together and prepare our hearts for Christmas, in person or remotely.
