St. Walter Book Club to Meet onf Wednesday, Septebmer 26
Keeping Jodi Picoult

Fans of Picoult's fluent and absorbing storytelling will welcome her new novel, which explores family dynamics and the intricacies of motherhood and concludes with a tense courtroom drama. Picoult's pacing stabilized the increasingly complicated plot, and the final chapters, in which Mariah, the main character, fights for custody of her daughert, Fair, are riveting

The Book Club will meet on September 26, at 7:00 pm in the Guiney Ministry Center Chapel. The book selections are listed below. If you would like to join the group for all, or any, of the book discussions, you can contact Sue Drogos for further information.

We learned how grace can move a person, how mercy can save a person, and how a “dead” person can be resurrected.

Joyful Disciples cheering joyfully for the Chicago Cubs

Holy Cow-Approximately 50 joyful parishioners met in St. Francis Hall on Wednesday October 26th to cheer on the Cubs in Game 2 of the 2016 World Series.  Hotdogs, chips and drinks were provided as the Cubs battled the Cleveland Indians.

A raffle was held with prizes donated by

•    Pilot Petes, Starbucks (Bloomingdale and Hanover Park)
•    Bentleys
•    Italian Pizza Kitchen
•    Dick Wickstrom Chevolet
•    Lynfred Winery
•    Riccardo's.

Popcorn was provided by Printing Plus.
One lucky raffle winner got to lead the crowd in "Take Me out to the Ballgame" during the seventh inning stretch. The evening ended with a sounding rendition of "Go Cubs Go" as the Cubs defeated the Indians 5-1.

I want to thank the St. Walters Men of Faith and you who put this together last night for a great fun evening and most of all for embracing my nephew David Arias. Attached are the pictures I took of him singing the "7th inning stretch".  He is one very special child of Christ. He is 27 years old and has embraced the Lord from day one. He is a great example of Christ and loves to share his talents with others.

His home parish is St Johns in Streamwood where he served as an alter server for many years. He also works there cleaning the church a couple days a week and also works at the Streamwood Park District.  He went to spread religious education for 26 years. He is a Boy Scout assistant leader to the St. Johns boy scout troop and is very proud  that  he  has  become  a  4th  degree  Knight  of Columbus. Obviously he is a HUGE cubs fan. He loved the event and asked me if he could come again if there is another one.
