SJC Seniors are invited to join Mayslake Ministries on Saturday, May 19, 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. to see The Shrine of Christ’s Passion in St. John, Indiana.
The Shrine of Christ’s Passion is an interactive winding pathway that begins with the Last Supper and Garden of Gethsemane and progresses through the Passion of Christ as depicted in the Stations of the Cross. 40 life size bronze statues add to the experience. After exiting the tomb, participants are led down a path where they will find Jesus meeting Mary Magdalene and experience His glorious Ascension to heaven. Also on the grounds are a Marian Wayside Shrine, the Sanctity of Life Shrine and the Our Lady of the New Millennium statue. The walk is approximately 1/2 mile. Golf carts with guides are available to those who have difficulty walking. If you will need assistance let us know at the time of registration.
Tickets are $55 per person for retreat materials, shrine admission, guided tour, lunch at Tiebel’s Restaurant and deluxe motorcoach transportation from the Parish Center. Make checks to SJC. A registration form can be found in the bulletin. Please return it to the Parish Center by April 27.
Thursdays 9 a.m.
We will meet in front of the Parish Center, weather permitting. Since this is our first time, we plan on forming small groups and walk around the SJC campus or beyond. What a great way to exercise and make new friends at the same time! Wear comfortable walking shoes. Questions, call Trudy Schmitt 708-246-4696.
