CATHOLIC CHURCH PILGRIMAGE
Celebrating the “Jubilee of Mercy”
Proclaimed by His Holiness, Pope Francis
Sunday, October 30, 2016
Come and celebrate your Catholic Faith in Christ by making a pilgrimage to two of the Chicago Archdiocese designated pilgrimage sites. Each site has a Holy Door of Mercy through which anyone who enters will experience the love of God, who consoles, pardons and instills hope.
We will have a brief tour of each church’s architecture and history, and a prayer devotion ending with a walk through the actual Holy Door, in order to obtain a plenary indulgence.
This pilgrimage is to be a journey of walking closer with God and discovering “moments of grace and spiritual renewal.” The only cost for the pilgrimage is the price of each person’s meal at dinner and we will be taking up a free will offering at each church in thanksgiving for their hospitality and kindness in being available to us to make this church pilgrimage.
The itinerary for the October 30 pilgrimage is as follows:
12:15 p.m. – Meet in St. Jane de Chantal Church (Corner of W. 53rd St. & S. McVicker,
Chicago, 60638) by the Blessed Mother statue, for beginning pilgrimage prayer, Angelus, and priest’s blessing.
12:20 p.m. – Depart for churches. (We will be car pooling. If you do not drive, we will include you in someone’s car. Detailed driving instructions will be given out.)
12:50 p.m. – Arrival at National Shrine of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini, Inc. (founded 1955)
2520 N. Lakeview
Chicago, IL 60614
1:00 p.m. – Tour conducted by a Missionary Sister of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and recitation of Divine Mercy Chaplet
2:25 p.m. – Depart for next church
2:50 p.m. – Arrival at Our Lady of Sorrows Basilica (founded 1874)
3111 W. Jackson Blvd.
Chicago, IL 60612
3:00 p.m. – Tour conducted by Rev. Frank Falco, OSM and recitation of the Holy Rosary
4:30 p.m. – Depart for restaurant
5:00 p.m. – Arrival at Pompei Restaurant (Italian food, salads, desserts)
1531 W. Taylor St. 312-421-5179
Chicago, IL 60617
We hope that you will join us for this “Jubilee of Mercy” Church Pilgrimage. It would be appreciated if you would call St. Jane de Chantal at (773) 767-2411 to let us know how many are coming so we can let the restaurant prepare for the proper number and we can prepare the proper number of vans and wheelchairs.

St Jane’s Food Pantry Garden has been harvesting crops!!
See how this years garden has grown!!!
Share the Harvest
This summer has been great for our St. Fiacre Garden here at St. Jane. We have grown fresh vegetables and delivered them to our sharing partners, The Rodriguez Pantry and St. Blase Food Pantry.
Now that the harvest season is upon us, please consider donating some of your garden vegetables to the poor and hungry. Starting this weekend, there will be a Share the Harvest bin in the church vestibule. You can drop off your excess tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and any other fresh vegetables in this bin and they will be brought to our sharing partners, who will be grateful for your generosity.
SPRED – Special Religious Education
Faith Formation and Inclusion for Children and Adults with Developmental Disabilities.
SPRED (Special Religious Development) created by the Archdiocese of Chicago is a unique program offering spiritual enrichment, for persons with developmental disabilities and/or learning problems including autism and ADHD. With the support of the SPRED Agency, a parish welcomes these children and adults into small faith community where they form friendships with people from the parish who journey with them in faith. SPRED helps each participant to know God and prepare them for full participation in the sacramental life of the parish.
There are four particular age groups in the SPRED Archdiocese program with each parish focusing on a certain age group. The groups are: 6-10 year old children; 11-16 year old teens; 17-21 year old young people; and adults (22 years and older). The SPRED program at St. Jane offers the opportunity to young adults and adults. Our group consists of eight adult volunteer and seven friends. Through prayer, activities, stories, Scripture reading, song and a simple meal, our catechists’ help our special friends learn and understand about our faith.
If you are a parent with a special needs child or adult we welcome you to further explore this unique program. For additional information please contact our rectory and ask to speak to Fr. Cronin or Deacon Ron.
We are also in need of volunteers. Please note that You Do Not Need Experience or feel that you must have prior knowledge of what this is about. The only requirement is that you are over 21 years of age and have a love for working with people! Believe me when I say, SPRED is a very worthwhile ministry where the rewards far outweigh the benefits. To learn more please contact the rectory and speak to Deacon Ron.

Summer is a great time to relax and reflect on what it might be that God is calling us to. Ministry is not just about doing. It is all about hearts touching hearts, hands reaching out to hands, prayers that bring hope to the hopeless. Knowing that we all have a part to play in God’s plan of Salvation in bringing about His Kingdom here on earth.
