St. Gall announces parish mission

By on February 19, 2009

St. Gall Church invites the community to a lenten mission beginning Sunday evening, Feb. 22, at 7:30 p.m. Monsignor Robert Hoffman, former pastor of St. John Neumann parish in St. Charles, will conduct the mission.

The goal of the mission, whose theme is “God is Our Strength and Our Salvation,” is to identify the “givens” of our lives. “Givens are things that we cannot change, yet must hopefully live with in a positive way.” Msgr. Hoffman believes that if we accept and embrace the “givens” of life, we can experience relative happiness in our lives.

The mission continues Monday and Tuesday, Feb. 23 and 24. The same talk will be given each day at 8:30 a.m. and 7:30 p.m.

For more information, please call the parish office at (630) 365-6030.
