I am a seminarian for the Archdiocese of Washington, running my third marathon. I will be joining brother seminarians from Mount St. Mary's Seminary in Emmitsburg, MD to help raise money for the sisters at Our Lady of the Angels in their efforts to serve the poor and bring the truths of the faith to Chicago. Please pray for us! Thank you for all of your generous support!
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 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.

The Mission is a 501(c)(3) and relies entirely on the donations of private donors.
