I got to know the Mission of Our Lady of the Angels this past winter, and immediately was impressed by the witness and ministry that the Franciscans of the Eucharist of Chicago are doing there. Pope Francis has described the Church as a "field hospital" and called us to be "a Church that is poor and for the poor"—and this call is being realized at the Mission of Our Lady of the Angels.
In support of this mission, I will be running in the Fort2Base 10 Nautical Mile Race at Fort Sheridan on August 27th, along with over 20 others from Team Our Lady of the Angels.
