Divine Mercy Sunday – April 8, 2018

A Eucharistic Holy Hour for Divine Mercy Sunday will be held on April 8th from 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm in Saint Kilian Church. The afternoon will include Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, Scripture Readings, a short reflection and conclude with praying the Divine Mercy Chaplet and Benediction. Please be with us that afternoon in joining together for a time of prayer and adoration seeking God’s mercy. 

Grief Support – April 9 to June 4, 2018

Losing a loved one is very often a devastating and life changing event.  If you have experienced the death of a loved one, Saint Kilian Parish invites you to be part of a nine week program that offers support, conversation, and comfort.  The group will meet weekly from April 9th through June 4th (except Memorial Day, May 28th) on Monday evening from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm in the lower level of Saint Kilian Church.  You do not need to be present at every session but may attend as your schedule permits.  Our first session, Is This Normal? introduces the GriefShare program and explores why the grief experience may be harder than expected. Use Contact Form on left to register or for more information.


Symbolon – April 17 to May 15, 2018

In January/February we offered the first 5 episodes of Symbolon, but even if you did not attend those sessions, please join us for part two! The topics we will present and discuss are: 

    • April 17th The Paschal Mystery: The Mystery of Jesus’ Death and Resurrection
      “The Paschal Mystery” is a phrase we hear and use in the Mass and sacramental rites, but do we understand what it means in the greater story of Salvation, from the Passover in Egypt to the Last Supper and Crucifixion of Jesus?
    • April 24th – The Holy Spirit and the Life of Grace: God’s Divine Life Within Us
      Who is the Holy Spirit? How does the Spirit work in our lives and in the life of the Church? Why is it so important that we know and love him?
    • May 1st – Why Do I Need the Church?: The Mystery of the Catholic Church
      Why does the Church claim to have authority over what Catholics believe? How do we reconcile both the divinity and humanity of the Church that Christ himself created? Why is the Church essential to the life of every believer?
    • May 8th – Mary and the Saints: Our Spiritual Mother and the Communion of Saints
      What do we think of Mary, the Mother of Jesus, and how does our relationship with her impact our relationship with her Son? What is the connection between our understanding of Mary and the rest of the saints? Why do we ask Mary and other “dead people” to pray for us?

  • May 15th – The Last Things: What Happens After We Die?
    What does the Church really teach about death, judgment, Heaven, and Hell? It’s time to separate the myths from the reality.

Symbolon will be held in the Church Hall from 6:30 pm to 8 pm. Use Contact Form on left to register or for more information.

Email Prayer Ministry

We all know someone who could use a few prayers or, maybe we need a prayer or two ourselves!  Become a member of our email prayer chain ministry. The email prayer chain is made up of people who regularly check their email and desire to be part of the prayer team. Prayer requests will be sent via email allowing you to pray for members of our parish and all who need prayers. Sensitivity and care will be taken to provide confidentiality in prayer requests. Only first names are used in the prayer requests, unless we are sharing the passing of a loved one. Visit the Prayer Intention Page to submit prayers or email Deacon Ralph to join the Email Prayer Ministry.

 Thursday Morning Men’s Group

Every second Thursday of the month is an opportunity to gather with other men from the parish as we discuss Men Who Matter from the Bible. The group meets from 6 am to 7 am and begins with coffee and pastries followed by a presentation by Fr. Bober. We close with small group discussion and opportunity to attend the 7 am Mass in Church. In the Fall, our group will begin the That Man Is You program which looks at the challenges men face and how to strengthen their relationship with God.
