COMMUNITY MEALS - AUGUST 12 FROM 12-4

St. Gregory’s has the opportunity to prepare and serve a warm meal to our neighbors in Waukegan. We gather at Christ Church, Waukegan after the 10a service at St. Gregory’s. We prepare a meal (menu already selected, and jobs easily assigned based on skill!), then serve the meal and interact with the neighbors who come to receive the food. This is a great opportunity to put our faith in action, and develop relationships with people in Waukegan. Children who are comfortable in a kitchen are welcome! Sign up sheets will be in Founders’ Hall, and help us make sure we have work for everyone to do.

 

BLESSING OF THE BACKPACKS - AUGUST 19 AT 10AM

Save the date for the Blessing of the Backpacks! All students and teachers are invited to bring your backpacks (or another bag of choice) to be blessed during the 10am service on August 19th. As you embark on another year of learning together, take our prayers with you!

 

WELCOME BACK TO CARUSO AND WILMOT STUDENTS/PARENTS - AUGUST 20 FROM 7:30-9:00AM

Let’s welcome our elementary and middle school neighbors back to school! We will have coffee, juice, doughnut holes (of course), and fun signs to use for photo opportunities. This is a great opportunity for St. Gregory’s to tell our neighbors how much they mean to us – so please join us on the corner of Wilmot and Deerfield!
