Catholics can and should honor Mary all year round, but May is an especially fitting time to develop a devotion to her.
St. Mary Mokena will host a free workshop for parents on Monday, May 6, at 6 pm about protecting children from digital predators lurking online and on their phones.
Internationally renowned Catholic author and speaker, Christopher West, will present at St. Mary Catholic Church in Mokena on Wednesday, May 22nd at 7pm. The event is called, “Made for More: Visions of the Promised Land,” and will use music, images, video, and speech to dive into life’s greatest mysteries and uncover how to lead fulfilling lives.
Why exactly did Jesus have to die, and how did His dying wash away our sins? We cannot fully appreciate Christ's tremendous sacrifice on the cross without understanding these reasons.
One of the best arguments for the Catholic Church being the one, true Christian Church is that it was the first. The Protestant Reformation happened 1,500 years later and has since spawned hundreds of offshoot churches. This is the opposite of the Catholic Church, which has, in matters of core doctrine, remained stable throughout the ages.
