On Thursday, May 13 at 6pm, the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima, Kevin Mathews, radio personality and author of Broken Mary: A Journey of Hope, will present from the “stay-in-your-car” shelter located in the St. Joseph School parking lot. Tune your car radio to 95.7FM
He will outline his journey of faith as it was guided and protected by Our Lady, and will then lead the Rosary in the Mary Garden, located in the school yard. All are welcome to the presentation and the reciting of the Rosary.
Kevin Matthews, a household name in the Chicago area for over 17 years, entertained 10 million listeners a week on AM 1000 The Loop and ABC and CBS radio. In the fall of 2008, he was partially paralyzed by multiple sclerosis. Broken Mary is the story of his radio career, his struggle to overcome a debilitating disease, and a chance encounter with a statue of the Virgin Mary found next to a dumpster. His enduring faith and great humor will capture the attention and the hearts of all--young and old.
Join speakers from Ss. Faith, Hope & Charity; Ss. Joseph and Francis Xavier and Divine Mercy parishes to explore the lessons Mary teaches us through her story in scripture. Speakers will each focus on one of nine biblical passages about Mary and there will be time for prayer and silent reflection. This is a tri-parish VIRTUAL presentation.
Divine Mercy: Rita Compton, Deacon Mike McNulty, Susan Seeberg
Ss. Faith, Hope & Charity: Anne-Marie D’Angelo, Gigi Enriquez
Ss. Joseph and Francis Xavier: Susan Couri, Mary Therese Brown, Christine Rademacher
