    The Rhythm Of Parish Life

    As I have mentioned before in the bulletin, living the Paschal Mystery is, often times, very hard. The

    dying and rising rhythm of life can cause pain as new challenges present themselves. There is a saying in

    ministry, based upon the model Jesus gave us when he chose 12 Apostles: "Always be looking for people

    who can lead people to the Lord." When a ministry leader is constantly looking for gifted people and those

    people are mentored into leadership, there is never a shortage of fresh ideas rooted in the Lord. The leaders

    recognize that, one day, they will also grow and will be called to go deeper. Thus, dying and rising. Or, to

    put it another way, in order to remain vibrant, to grow in faith, and to remain inspired, things must die or

    new things must be attempted in order for rising to occur. Theologically, we can think of Good Friday.

    Jesus' death was exceedingly painful. No one understood, initially, why he had to die and in such a brutal

    way. But, in order for us to be saved through the Resurrection, Jesus had to die. There is no rising without

    first dying. If reading about dying and rising has made you think of our recent staff members who are no longer on

    staff, good! We have thanked Jim Kelly and we thank him again today. The new music ministry torch has

    passed onto musicians whom he has worked with for years at St. Cecilia. We wish Jim continued success at

    his full-time job. We thank Carol Klinger who was on staff as our religious education secretary. Due to

    lack of enrollment, which I spoke about at Masses not too long ago, there is no longer a need for an RE

    secretary. We hope to see Carol again soon when the Tall Ship Windy season ends for the year. We thank

    Audrey Taylor who was on staff as our bulletin editor. We are trying out a new idea for getting the bulletin

    ready for publication and, as such, Audrey's position as bulletin editor was phased out. To all three, thank

    you for how you have ministered to God's people.

    Sincerely yours in Christ,

    Lisa Mersereau

    Responding to Domestic Violence in Our Community

    On Saturday and Sunday,

    December 8 and 9

    Fr. Charles W. Dahm, O.P.,

    Director of Domestic Violence Outreach for the Archdiocese of Chicago, will preach

    at all the Masses at St. Cecilia parish.

    Although largely unseen, domestic violence is rampant in the United States, including in our

    community. Calls about domestic violence are the most frequent received by local police.

    Fr. Dahm will speak with those parishioners interested in learning more about domestic

    violence and/or helping our parish respond to the needs of victims in our community as

    sensitively and compassionately as we can.

    When: Thursday, December 13

    Time: 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

    Where: Bernardin Room

    5 Reasons to Stay Until the End of Mass

    It is an interesting phenomenon. An isolated incident is not that concerning to me. But when half the parishioners

    have disappeared to the parking lot before the closing song has ended, it makes my heart a little sad. I want to

    say, "You have Jesus inside you! Take a minute to talk to him, to thank him, to love him!". Here are reasons I

    stay until the end of Mass:

    1. Communion Is About Communing:

    When we receive communion, we receive Jesus himself. When we eat and run it is like visiting a friend and the

    moment he is able to sit down and be present to us we jump up and run out the door yelling, "It was so great to

    spend time with you, see you next week!"

    2. It's Not Nice to Be Rude:

    My motivation to be on time should not be to avoid embarrassment but because I am going to see Jesus. But

    why is it easy for us to leave early and come late when it is the Creator of the Universe who is hoping to see us?

    3. Mass Is Not An Activity on a To-Do List:

    The Christian life is not a to-do list. It is an invitation to be in relationship with God. If we are going to Mass to

    avoid mortal sin, we are missing much. We are called to relationship, to holiness, to transformation.

    4. The Final Blessing Is Important:

    Blessings are precious. When a priest, who by his ordination is configured to Christ, gives his final blessing, we

    are being blessed by God himself. If Jesus were standing ready to give us a blessing before we left Mass and

    went back out into the world, wouldn't you wait for it?

    5. You Get MORE Grace:

    If we are rushing out of church after communion, chances are our disposition is not such that we are reverentially

    aware of the amazing fact that we are consuming the body, blood, soul and divinity of God himself. It's heavy

    stuff. And it deserves a disposition of great respect, if only because we all need all the grace we can get.

    If you have loved ones who are

    currently serving in the Armed

    help for parishioners and those living within the parish boundaries. Please

    call 847-437-6208. Requests will be handled with care and confidentiality.

    Ask yourself “Am I only giving from

    my surplus wealth?” and then put your

    gift in the Society of St. Vincent de

    Paul poor box so that those who are

    suffering will be able to know God’s

    love and care.

    In today’s Gospel Jesus tells us: “I want you to observe

    that this poor widow contributed more than all the others

    who donated to the treasury. They gave from their surplus

    wealth, but she gave from her want, all that she had to live


    Calling All Secret Santas!

    The Respect Life committee will be collecting

    Christmas gifts for the children of the Women’s

    Center again this year. The tree filled with gift

    tags will be in the Gathering Space. Please take a

    tag and buy a gift for a deserving child. Remember the un-

    wrapped gift should be in a store bag only. Then attach the tag to

    the bag. Be mindful of the weight of the gift as the moms have to

    transport these gifts on the bus. Gifts must be returned to the

    Giving Tree no later than Sunday, December 2nd.

    plans. Weddings are celebrated Fridays at 3pm and

    Saturdays at 2pm.
