Annual CRUX Camp is Coming Soon to beautiful Oakbrook Valley along the Wildcat Creek!
The weekend of February 27/28, our parish is rolling out a great gift that we’ve purchased for all of our parishioners. It’s an online platform called FORMED. Edward Sri, who is again speaking at this year’s HFCC, has attempted to compile some of the best Catholic resources in one place—including programs like the Catholicism series by Bishop Barron, full-length movies like Padre Pio—Miracle Man, an array of wonderful CDs from Lighthouse Catholic Media, and ebooks like Scott & Kimberly Hahn’s Rome Sweet Home. Through these resources, you’ll encounter great speakers like Dr. Tim Gray, Dr. Edward Sri, Dr. Mary Healy, Chris Stefanick, Dr. Scott Hahn, Bishop Robert Barron, Jason Everett, Fr. Leo Patalinghug, and so many more. This is truly meant to be your one stop for all things solidly Catholic for the whole family!
With this resource, you have the Catholic faith at your fingertips, whenever and wherever it is convenient for you. Whether you want to go back and refresh yourself on the basics of the faith, delve deeply in some more advanced topics, or just enjoy some wholesome entertainment, there is something available for you. This resource won’t replace the things we already offer at the parish, but they should be a great tool for personal formation and for small groups to gather together to grow in their faith and to support one another.
This amazing resource is only in its infancy, and new resources are constantly being added. In future bulletins, we will highlight the resources that are available and suggest ways that you can integrate FORMED into your life—whether it’s following up on a homily, hearing adult presentations about topics your children are studying at our school or in SRE, using the ebooks for your spiritual reading and prayer, or simply establishing relationships with other parishioners who wish to become intentional disciples.
Our parish just got “FORMED”—so now what do I do?
If you need assistance, check out this step-by-step guide to FORMED: CLICK HERE. You will receive the code the weekend of Feb. 27/28.

“It is God who gives life. Let us respect and love human life, especially vulnerable life in a mother’s womb.” – Pope Francis on Twitter @Pontifex, May 15, 2013
“Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you and utter every kind of evil against you (falsely) because of me. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven. Thus they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” – Matthew 5:11-12
