A prayer for “Renew My Church”

Lord Jesus, you speak to us today,
as you spoke to holy men and women
who have gone before us.
In every age and in our own time,
you call to us and say: Renew My Church.

Pour out the gift of your Holy Spirit upon us,
and so enable us
	to hear you clearly
	to listen to each other attentively
	to imagine our future boldly
	to discern your direction wisely
	to persevere in your holy will courageously
	to stay together in charity
	to surrender our own plans readily
	to embrace the greater good
	to hand on your gifts to future generations.

May we remain in the holy company of
the Blessed Virgin Mary, the apostles, and all the saints.
May their example and presence
inspire us with patient confidence
in the work of your grace.

We ask this of you who live and reign
with the Father
in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God,
forever and ever. Amen

Transfiguration To Teach Who Christ Is

Fellow Parishioners, as co chairs of Phase II of the TTWIC, we feel that it is appropriate and timely to provide a status of the Parish's progress. First and foremost, we again want to say THANK YOU to all those who have pledged and worked diligently with us to insure the Parish's future. Currently, the Parish's pledges exceed $1.3 million dollars. Many projects have been completed, most notably the significant renovation of our worship space. We cannot forget all that was accomplished prior to this: lighting in Parish Life Center, telecommunications in parish office and school and parking lot improvements to name a few. All of these provide the infrastructure to improve the ways we "Teach Who Christ Is". Also, one of the ongoing Parish priorities was and is the reduction of Parish debt. We are moving forward on this priority, which of course depends upon everyone following thru on your pledges. Continuing to reduce our debt is key  to providing for the future of Transfiguration. Naturally, as our debt decreases, we can shift focus to the next priority improvements to continue teaching Christ's message.

Thank you,

Karen & Mark Abernathy 847-­526-­6079     Eileen and Gene Faut 224­-305-­6176

Holy Year, Jubilee of Mercy Minimize

It is a grace that Transfiguration has been designated as a pilgrimage site for the Holy Uear, Jubilee of Mercy. Doors at the main churh and Old White Church (weekday masses) have been appropriately blessed and marked. The doors indicate that we are leaving our regular life, crossing a threshold to enter a new living place to relate with God's mercy. The action may be physical but the result is spiritual. It includes a time of prayer, either receiving the Eucharist, another service or personal reflection; making a profession of faith; going to confession and praying for the intentions of Pope Francis. This obtains a plenary indulgence which is "a remission before God of temporal punishment for sins which have already been forgiven." The church as minister of redemption has the authorith to dispense this treasure. A plenary indulgence may be applied to someone who has died.

Additionally, our ARchbishop Cupich encourages us to practice one of the spiritual or corporal works of mercy during this Year of Mercy. They are included here:

Corporal Works of Mercy: Feed the hungry; give drink to the thirsty; clothe the naked; welcome the stranger; visit the sick; visit the imprisoned; bury the dead.

Spiritual Works of Mercy: Counsel the doubtful; teach those who lack knowledge; admonish sinners; comfort the affliceted; forgive those who hurt us; bear patiently thos who so us ill; pray for the living and the dead.

Be merciful as your heavenly Father is merciful.
