Filipino Families of Skokie
Keeping the Filipino Culture and Tradition Alive
August 30, 2011
September is a very special month for the Filipino community. It is the month that we honor and celebrate the feast day of the first Filipino saint, San Lorenzo Ruiz de Manila. His life reflects the Filipinos’ unique gift of faith and spirituality.
St. Lambert Church will again be observing San Lorenzo’s feast day on September 29, 2012. The spiritual celebration will start with a nine-day novena from September 20 to September 28 at 6:45 p.m. at Saint Lambert Church, 8148 Karlov Avenue, Skokie, Illinois (847) 673-5090. A procession and a festival Mass on September 29 at 5:00 p.m. will highlight this special occasion.
We encourage you to join us spiritually in our novena, and we cordially invite you to come and celebrate the fiesta with us following the mass! We will have music, entertainment and meet old and new friends. We will also have a small “salu-salu” at St Lambert’s Trainor Hall. Bring all your family and friends!
If you wish to make a donation for this year’s celebration, please make the check payable to Filipino Families of Skokie and send it in the enclosed self addressed envelope. Your donation is tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.
