Parish Mission - St. Mary of the Annunciation Mundelein, IL


What does it means to be a true disciple of Jesus? Lent is the perfect time to quiet ourselves, to listen to the voice of the shepherd, and to deepen our personal relationship with God. During this two night event, our speaker Kristen Bird will help us to tune into the voice of the shepherd, to become better disciples, and discern how each of us can best live out our unique calling to share the love of God with the world. Join the parish mission to renew your spirit and reunite as a blessed community of faith. All ages are welcome!

Day 1: Experiencing the Kerygma - The Core Gospel Message

The first day of the mission was focused on what it means to be a disciple who encounters the Core Gospel message and the person of Jesus in a life-changing way. Learn more about the Kerygma and use these resources to dive into this aposotolic proclamation of the Good News of Jesus Christ so that this foundational message can take root in your own heart.
