I have spent the past 9 years of my life tackling maintenance issues. BY FAR the most annoying, long lasting, and time consuming issue was the BOILERS/ heat system. It has innumerable issues. The only advantage has been my opportunity to evangelize at least 10 different HVAC repair companies.
This is the year the Lord has made. Both boilers in the school-rectory-church heat system will be replaced by winter 2020-2021.
I am running the 2019 Chicago Marathon to end the boiler issues once and for all. We have completed the 1st 1/2 of the boiler repairs for this winter + I dream of having the second half done for winter 2020-2021
Please donate to help us finish up this heat system project once and for all!
This is part of the larger school renovation project, which is outlined HERE.
I am extraordinarily blessed to be leading 100 incredible people on this Chicago Marathon journey. Thank you for your continued support of Team OLA. Here is info about our team:
Team Mission of Our Lady of the Angels will be fundraising through the 2019 Bank of America Chicago Marathon and Shamrock Shuffle!
Mission of Our Lady of the Angels exists to provide material and spiritual support to the West Humboldt Park, Chicago- one of the most challenged neighborhoods in the United States. The Mission feeds about 1000 families a month, provides additional material and pastoral support to families, youth, and senior citizens, and, most importantly, brings the love of Christ to a neighborhood desperately in need of hope.
Funds will be used to complete the renovation of the Mission's new outreach center to the poor in West Humboldt Park, Chicago. The new outreach center will provide the very needed space for the Mission's donation storage/ distribution, a handicapped accessible kitchen/ dining room, meeting space for neighborhood and retreat groups, and a 60+ bedroom retreat center for volunteers and retreat guests.
