The Guild of St. Patrick's to Host an Evening of Reflection

Monday, May 11th at 7 p.m.
Our Lady of Mount Carmel Chapel, St. Patrick's Residence

The Guild of St. Patrick's invites you to join them for an Evening of Reflection: "All You Need is Love!" facilitated by John Blumberg.  Love is patient, love is kind...and it just so happens to be the single most defining essence of our entire experience on earth. When Jesus was asked to name the greatest commandment of all, He didn't name one.  He named two and, yet, both of them were focused on one  In this reflection, John Blumberg comes to share just one point that you will find to have endless applications.  In whatever season you currently find yourself, you will find this experience will help you rediscover what fuels your leadership, legacy and life to the fullest.  Come listen and learn...why love is all you need!'re going to love it!

John G. Blumberg is a professional speaker and author inspiring a movement of executives dedicated to building value with core values.  He is well into the writing of his 3rd book, ROI Return on Integrity, now due to release early 2016.  John comes alongside organizations of all kinds and all sizes inspiring them to build value with values so they in-turn experience a return on integrity! He and his wife, Cindy, have lived and raised their 3 children in Naperville over the last 22 years.  And, like all of us along the journey of life, he is still learning what it means to love more.

Refreshments will be served in the Coffee Shop following the presentation.  There is no registration fee, but a $5 offering would be appreciated. 

R.S.V.P. to Cathy Carr in the Development Department by May 4th at (630) 416-6565 ext. 535 or
