Monthly Speaker Series

October 18, 2021 - 6:00pm

All are invited to join us for our new monthly speaker series! If you enjoyed our popular Wine Down Wednesdays this summer, you won’t want to miss this. At 6:00 p.m. we will gather for Mass in the church to pray together, then move to the chapel to socialize and connect. At 7:00 p.m. our guest speaker will begin.

Join us from 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. Monday, October 18 as we welcome speaker MaryClare Birmingham, Executive Director of Kolbe House Jail Ministry.

The presentation will feature a viewing of the documentary, "Restored: Stories of Encounter," telling the story of Kolbe House Associate Director Deacon Pablo Perez and his conversion from the streets of Chicago to jail chaplain. (Click for a trailer of the documentary.) Following the 20-minute documentary, Kolbe House Executive Director MaryClare Birmingham will facilitate discussion around treatment towards those who have perpetrated violence in Chicago-area neighborhoods and what a Catholic response looks like.
