Welcome to Oak Brook, IL!
Investiture weekend: October 21-23, 2016
New: It has come to our attention that the downloadable Registration form previously available here could be filled in and saved, but (at least on some systems) printed out as a blank form, without the saved data. This was due to a misconfiguration of the form fields, which has been corrected. The new version of the form will print out correctly, together with any data that has been entered in it.
Speaker information and a preliminary version of the schedule for the weekend are now available from the General Information tab above. Although the schedule is described as 'preliminary', we do not expect there to be any major changes in it, going forward.
The 2016 Investiture will be based at the Hilton Oak Brook Hills Resort & Conference Center. On the Friday evening, we will be attending the blessing of the new altar for St. Bartolo Longo, which has been paid for by contributions from our Members over a number of years, at the Shrine of Our Lady of Pompeii, in Chicago. The Promotion Liturgy and Mass will take place at St. Procopius Abbey, in Lisle, and the Investiture Liturgy and Mass will take place at St. Isaac Jogues Church, in Hinsdale. The theme for the event is: "Pilgrimage", and information about our speakers is available from the General Information tab above. For any other enquiries about the 2016 Investiture, please contact the Oak Brook team.
Registration for the event is open. A Registration packet has been mailed to all active Members, and you may also download the Registration Form from the link on the top menu here. The Registration Fee, which includes all meals for the weekend, is $550 for paid Registrations received before September 15, 2016, or $600 thereafter. The Registration form available here uses Adobe Forms technology, and can be viewed and completed using Adobe Reader and then printed out. We recommend downloading the form before using it because the writable form fields may not be visible or usable in some browsers when the form is viewed online. The unmodified form can alternatively be printed out, either from your browser or from Adobe Reader, and filled in by hand. Please mail your completed form, with payment, to the address shown on the form. If you wish to pay for your Registration with a Credit Card, please fill in the card details in the appropriate place on the back of the form; otherwise, please attach a check. Please note that Credit Card accounts will be debited for the full amount shown on the forms as soon as Registrations are processed, very shortly after we receive them. Full payment must be received by September 15 for the early Registration pricing to apply.
