Nearly two weeks ago, the Cathedral of Saint John the Evangelist opened up its doors, offered candles and invited Bastille Day goers to enter into the sacred worship space to spend some in quiet prayer for peace and to garner interest in the church and the Catholic faith. This coming Friday Oremus MKE will be held at Our Lady of Divine Providence- St Mary Czestochowa site during the Riverwest 24 Bike Race from 7pm until 10pm. Confession will be available during Eucharistic Adoration. Please see below for more details and how to get involved in bring others closer to the Lord.

Via: OremusMke

"A Church which 'goes forth' is a Church whose doors are open...Often it is better simply to slow down, to put aside our eagerness in order to see and listen to others, to stop rushing from one thing to another and to remain with someone who has faltered along the way." Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium

OremusMKE is an outreach ministry that seeks to literally open the doors of our churches to welcome people in. The life of our churches does not always coincide with the life of our neighborhoods. By opening our churches for prayer, adoration, music and reflection during a busy weekend night, we hope to bring people into our churches so that they can experience the power of God and the hospitality of our parishcommunity.

The doors of Our Lady of Divine Providence-St. Mary Czestochowa (3055 N Fratney St) will be open on Friday, July 24 from 7-10 pm. Pairs of people will invite our neighbors from the Riverwest 24 bike race in to see the beautiful church and to light a candle for peace. There will be Eucharistic adoration throughout the evening.

All in our four-parish family are invited to come pray in the church. If you are interested in helping or have questions please contact Samantha Vosters at or Chad Griesel, Director of Adult Faith Formation, at 414-271-6180 or

  1. This place is absolutely gorgeous, beautiful and stunning. Even though a few party space rentals in Brooklyn are equally appealing and fascinating in their decor, food and aesthetics, I'm tempted to still give this place a slight edge.
