St. James the Apostle Parish in Glen Ellyn invites you to our Lenten Mission entitled, We Are All Pilgrims…Lost and Found Along The Way. Author and presenter Deacon Willie Williams will share a presentation through storytelling and short videos based upon his three pilgrimages on the Camino de Santiago.
In his recent book, Lost and Found Along the Way, Deacon Willie shares stories of his journey following one of the ancient trails of pilgrimage for over 700 miles through France, Portugal, Italy and Switzerland to Santiago de Compostela, the final resting place of St. James the Greater on the coast of Spain.
He will retell some of the stories of his experience on the Camino and offer insight into how our personal Caminos through life are a place where God dwells. “God is in the story if we look deeply enough,” he says. “Our faith story is today’s parable…a teaching for the next person about how to see God’s intervention, grace and forgiveness.”
Join us on Sunday evening, March 13th from 6:30 P.M. to 8 P.M. in St. James Hall, 480 S. Park Blvd., Glen Ellyn. Please enter through Door 11 or 12 to the church and follow the narthex to St. James Hall. For more information visit www.stjamesge.org or call 630.469.7540.
