ROCKFORD DIOCESE ANNOUNCEMENTS
November 18th – 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time
One of the obvious things about life is that we learn from our personal experiences. Jesus says in the Gospel this Sunday, “Learn a lesson from the fig tree. When its branch becomes tender and sprouts leaves, you know that summer is near.” Then He goes on to say, “In the same way, when you see these things happening, know that he is near, at the gates.” Our lives are filled with lessons. This simple reality invites us to be extra attentive to all the things happening around us, because these help us to understand our calling and mission in life. Prior to becoming a priest I cooked in restaurants and catering companies, and during this time I often encountered and was encouraged by people to look at the signs in my life that pointed towards being a priest. God put people in my life that were attentive to what I needed to be attentive to. I will leave us with this…be attentive to what is happening in your life, there is a lesson and meaning for our life to be discovered.

Many men come because of the dynamic speakers and meaningful activities that foster a stronger relationship with God, their families, friends and co-workers.
If you have come before, why not reach out to other men and invite them to share in what you’ve discovered? If you have never attended, reserve a day for yourself to:
