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 is observing San Lorenzo’s feast day usually on the third Saturday of September. This spiritual celebration will start with a nine-day novena at 6:45 p.m. at Saint Lambert Church, 8148 Karlov Avenue, Skokie, Illinois (847) 673-5090. A procession and a festival Mass on the feast day at 5:00 p.m. will highlight the 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!
