PLAINFIELD, Ill. — Enjoy renewing your faith at a Parish Mission given by the Sparough Family Mission Team: Fr Michael, Tom, Tricia, and Maribel.

The Sparoughs are entertaining evangelists who use their performing skills to bring the gospel message of Jesus alive. The mission, Wise Fools and Happy Stewards, is a call to follow Jesus into the heart of the gospel.

Join the St. Mary Immaculate Lent-en Mission in the parish church from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday evenings, Feb. 24 through 26.

During the three-day mission, these “birds of a feather” will lead participants through dramatizations of stories and gospel scenes, spiritual analogies illustrated by juggling, guided imagery prayer, clowning, engaging preaching, uplifting songs, and rituals of blessing.

This mission is for the whole family, designed to challenge, delight and re-ignite the flame of God’s love in our hearts, to help set our captive hearts free.

Sunday’s theme is “Discipleship: Following the Master of Folly.” On Monday, parishioners can receive the sacrament of Reconciliation. The evening’s theme is “Reconciliation: Holdíng On and Letting Go.”

The mission closes on Tuesday with the theme “Mission: The Challenge Juggle.”
