Taize Prayer at St. Gilbert
You are invited to participate on Sunday Afternoon, March 9th at 3:00pm in Church.
Taize Prayer is a quiet, simple way of prayer, based on the format used in the Community of Taize France. This contemplative candlelight service includes simple chants (such as the familiar "Jesus, Remember Me"), extended silence, scripture, choral selections, and intercessory prayer.
The ecumenical community was founded in Taize, France in 1940 by Brother Robert after World War II. He dreamed of creating a community where reconciliation was a daily reality. Today, Taize is a place of pilgrimage of people who come to find peace and meaning in their lives.
Journeys of Faith
Welcome Home Catholics:
If you have been away from the Church for a while, no matter how long or what reason, we WELCOME YOU HOME!
Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA):
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is primarily a journey to a life of faith, love and justice lived in communion with Catholics throughout the world. If you, or someone you know, have been thinking about becoming a member of the Catholic Church or to complete their Catholic initiation (sacraments of Eucharist and Confirmation), contact the rectory at 847-223-4731.
Search the stirring of faith within your heart. Hear the gospel proclaimed. Examine doubts and hesitations. Discern God's calling of you.
Are you a baptized Catholic, 19 or older and out of High School, who has received First Communion but was unable to prepare for the sacrament of Confirmation? Catechetical sessions are available at St. Mary of the Annunciation in English and Santa Maria Del Popolo in Spanish. For program sessions & registration information contact Fr. Phi at the rectory at 847-223-4731.
Rejoice In God:
Do you have a child of school age who has not been baptized or baptized in another faith tradition who desires to become Catholic? Do you have a child in third grade who has not celebrated their Reconciliation or Eucharist? If you have answered “Yes” to either question, the “Rejoice In God” program is for you. Contact Sister Donna at the Religious Education office for further information and to register: 847-223-3071.
