TO TEACH WHO CHRIST IS
A Campaign for St. Norbert Parish
The people of St. Norbert are believers…in our faith, in our Catholic heritage, in Christian stewardship and responsibility for that which has been entrusted to us. THANK YOU for achieving our $3.9 million goal! We now have an even brighter tomorrow for our family of faith.
PRAY FOR VOCATIONS – ELIJAH CUP MINISTRY – SIGN UP!
In 1 Kings 17, during a drought, Elijah tells the poor widow of Zarapeth that if she makes him a small loaf of bread with the last of her flour and oil, her “jar of flour will not go empty, nor the jug of oil run dry, until the Lord sends rain upon the earth.” In faith, the widow baked the bread and fed Elijah. For the next year, the widow, her son, and Elijah ate bread made from the bowl of flour and jug of oil. Sometimes we forget just how powerful praying for an increase in Vocations can be. If we pray with the faith of the widow of Zarapeth, our cup will never run dry! To in-courage and remind you to pray for Vocations, SIGN UP to take the Elijah Cup home with you for a week. Contact Father Dan to participate in this great opportunity! Email or call Father Dan (847-513-6706) to get on the list!
