I need your help to raise our collective goal of $200,000+!
Many of you know that the former school building is now in need of major construction for our outreach purposes - feeding and serving the poor in our neighborhood. It took almost 2 years for us to receive our building permits and we are moving full steam ahead!
Many people have asked what the building is going to be used for:
-Hosting volunteers and retreatants
-Feeding the poor and service groups/volunteers
-Breakout space/conference space
Help us to reach our goal by contributing now. Many of you have been so generous in the past and I am grateful for your support of my vocation and the work of the Mission. May God bless you for your generosity!
Suggestions to donate:
1. Instead of buying a week's worth of coffee, donate that amount instead.
2. Sponsor X amount per step/per mile
3. It's during Lent...think of Almsgiving!
4. If you love St. Patty's Day, donate twice the amount!
5. Your hard-earned money goes directly to the Mission. Every bit helps. Donate what you can.
Team Mission of Our Lady of the Angels will be fundraising through the 2020 Bank of America Chicago Marathon and Shamrock Shuffle!
The 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 raised from Team OLA 2020 will be used to complete the renovation & begin the programming out 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 45+ bedroom retreat center for volunteers and retreat guests. We are very excited to be opening this facility in 2020!
