Upcoming Events At CHC
Time for Women: September 17, 6:30 pm
Time for Women began four years ago as a small group of women looking for evening fellowship. It is now a group of more than 25 women of all ages and stages in life who meet monthly simply for dinner and conversation. They will gather this month at 6:30pm in the party room of 1440 N. Sheridan Road, and will be hosted by Donna Doberstein (if the weather is good enough, the group will also take advantage of the beach.) Please look for an evite to come soon from Jan Parkin, or call the church office to sign up (847/251-6120).
Family Fall Festival: Saturday, September 28
Our Fall Festival has become a community family tradition. The hayride will be more fun than ever-a horse-drawn hay wagon will take passengers for a ride through the village! Our pumpkin patch will have locally grown pumpkins, apples, and fall flowers for sale. Popcorn, donuts and apple cider will be served. The Fall Festival takes place on the parish lawn from 10am-noon. Family and friends are welcome!
Newcomers' Reception: Sunday, October 12
Fr. Jason and Jan Parkin, Doug Groncki, and the Hospitality Team invite all who are new to Holy Comforter to join us at a reception and cocktail party at the Rectory on Saturday, October 12, from 4:00 to 6:00 pm. This informal gathering - to which children of all ages are also invited - will be a casual and fun time for people who have recently come to Holy Comforter to meet some parishioners, learn more about the parish, and become acquainted with one another. We promise that there will be no "hard sell:" we simply want to welcome you to the parish and enjoy some time together. Please join us! RSVP to the parish office by October .
Fall Fellowship Dinner: Friday, October 25
The Fall Fellowship Dinner is one of our favorite celebrations of our parish life, and an opportunity for adult parishioners to gather for fun, food and friendship. Back by popular demand are the "Refreshment Houses:" an informal cocktail hour held in parishioner homes prior to dinner in the Great Hall. Watch for your invitation to sign up for your Refreshment House and dinner. Cocktails from 5:30-7pm; dinner at 7:30pm.
