|Bag-Lunch Encounters with Christ||
At our Holy Thursday Mass of the Lord's Supper, we were offered an "opportunity" to "be what you see, receive what you are," and "become what we receive."
This was not an invitation for simple charity, but one of kinship and mutual connection.
So, what did you do with your bag-lunch (either the physical one or the idea represented therein) from Holy Thursday Mass? Share your story with us!

We would be delighted if you would consider sharing your time and talents within the Old St. Patrick’s community.
Many visitors or new members ask, “Why the term, Member?” instead of the common term, “parishioner.” This Membership language is intentional. No, you are not joining an elite club and no, there really aren’t member perks. However, you are choosing your spiritual home. You are choosing to pray with us, serve with us, and provide your generous gifts with us. You are choosingthis sacred place as your spiritual home. We entrust the Mission of Old St. Pat’s to its Members.
Our current generation of members joins with those of the past in striving to build an experience of Church that is genuinely welcoming, mission oriented, and Christ centered. We welcome men and women, people of all races and ethnicities, young and old, gay and straight. We welcome rich and poor, searchers and seekers, Catholics and people of other religious traditions. We are gifted by your presence.

|Spiritual Makeover: Becoming a New Creation||
Back by popular demand, a women's retreat ... rescheduled for July 19-21, 2019
What is it about the quiet that invites us deeper – the darkness that wraps herself around us or the stillness that urges us to ponder? No doubt about it, something about the quiet calls us home.
“Come inside,” she whispers. “Come rekindle the fire.”
Join us for a women’s weekend of renewal In the midst of the city. We will pause together at the Cenacle Retreat House just minutes from Lake Michigan to assess our spiritual homes, consider opportunities for our own interior makeovers and strengthen our foundations. Together, we’ll pray ourselves into a new creation.
This retreat will be facilitated by Laura Field, Kathleen Quinn, and Al Gustafson.
|The Beloved Retreat Experience November 2019||
We'd like to invite you to a weekend of beginnings. Whether you’re old or young (at heart), single or married, religious or skeptic, hurt or healing, laid back or caffeinated, you’ll fit right into our Beloved Retreat.
Founded in 1999, the Beloved Retreat offers you a community within Old St. Pat’s and our Catholic Church. Our hope is that, together, we can rediscover what often eludes us, but what God wants us to know: that you are Beloved.
We offer a safe, open inclusive environment in a quiet, pastoral setting where you can explore your relationship with God and yourself.
The Beloved Retreat doesn’t end with the weekend. After the retreat, you’ll find another beginning. Regular Sunday Legacy meetings extend the Beloved experience and deepen our roots as a community of believers.
In addition, you can join small prayer groups to spiritually grow and deepen your personal faith and companionship with others.
Beloved Retreat Dates:
November 22-24, 2019
The November Retreat will be held on the beautiful grounds of St. Mary's of the Lake in Mundelein, IL.
Weekend retreats begin Friday at 6 p.m. and conclude Sunday at 2:30 p.m.The cost of the retreat is $225. However, we never want cost to prohibit anyone from attending. Scholarships are available; just ask.
For more information, contact Polly Mulhearn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
