The Family Evangelization Congress will bring more than 3,000 participants together from the Polish community as they walk with Christ this Lenten season. Polish school students, youth, parents, young adults, catechists and many more will participate in this three-week congress. The congress is organized by the Department of Parish Vitality and Mission and the Polish Council Ministry.
This congress will reinvigorate youth, teens and parents, motivate them to reengage in their formation and encourage them to seek new opportunities for spiritual development as faithful followers of Jesus Christ.
Join us this Spring as we grow together, with you, and strengthen the culture of lifelong formation in our faith community.
This event is free. Free parking is available at all church locations. For more information, please visit pvm.archchicago.org/events/not-alone
