The Story of the Christmas Star
On Sunday, November 22 at 5:00 pm., Joliet Junior College Planetarium will be offering a free presentation of "The Story of the Christmas Star". This show covers the history of the winter solstice celebration and why Christmas is celebrated at this time of year. It also addresses what the Christmas star might have been, what year the birth described in the Bible might have happened, and the story of the three kings. Biblical, historical, and astronomical data was used to prepare this show.
Only 38 seats remain for this free presentation being offered just for our Parish. Please contact Sue, in the parish office, to make your reservation. Joliet Junior College Planetarium is located at 1215 Houbolt Road Joliet, IL 60431.
We invite you to join us as we come together to worship and serve the Lord. It is clear that through our Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist we enter into a faith community.
We, the Catholic faith community of Resurrection Parish, are called together through sacraments and stewardship, to share the mission of Christ: proclaiming, building and living the kingdom of God.
To be a eucharistic people dedicated to becoming instruments of peace and justice by fostering our faith, love and hope for the future through service to the community.
