The Adoption Creed
Not flesh of my flesh nor bone of my bone, but still miraculously my own. Never forget for a single minute, you didn’t grow under my heart, but in it. ~ Author unknown
A celebration of life and love for adoptive families, adoptees, birthparents, friends, and anyone whose life has been impacted by the miracle of adoption.
Casual dinner reception follows the mass in the church hall. Please bring a dish to share.

On Saturday, January 5, about 50 people gathered in Mundelein to pray alongside the US Catholic Bishops. Our goals were simple: pray with Bishops, stand with survivors, advocate for lay leadership.
Our Statement to Cardinal Blase Cupich: “We believe that without lay governance, the church risks becoming an irrelevant institution of the past, rooted not in the saving message of Jesus, but made rotten by privilege, protectionism and patriarchy. Despite all that has happened, we Catholics on the Crisis Response Council (and those whom we represent) have stayed in the pews, educated our children in the Catholic faith, volunteered and donated our time, talent and treasure to a church whose leaders have lost their way.”
