God meets man. How is this even possible?

By natural reason man can know God with certainty, on the basis of His works. But there is another order of knowledge which man cannot possibly arrive at by his own powers: the order of divine Revelation…Through an utterly free decision, God has revealed Himself and given Himself to man. This He does by revealing the mystery, His plan of loving goodness, formed from all eternity in Christ, for the benefit of all men. God has fully revealed this plan by sending us His beloved Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.” (CCC: 50)

This revelation is an unfolding of Himself that is continual, so there is not one among us who cannot seek to know God more. Please join us this Tuesday in Connolly Hall in the lower level of the church at 6:30 PM as Fr. Geary guides us in discovering how God reveals Himself to us. Enter by the Church office doors. Masks required. Social distancing practiced. If you wish to prepare for sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist or Confirmation through this journey, please call the parish office at 815-547-6397 for additional information, or simply join us this Tuesday.
