THE 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 roughly 1000 families a month, provides additional material and pastoral care to families, youth, and senior citizens, and, most importantly, brings the love of Christ to a neighborhood desperately in need of hope.
RUNNING FOR A PURPOSE Funds will be used to complete the renovation of the Mission's new outreach center to the poor in West Humboldt Park, Chicago. The space will be used for our apostolates and include accommodations for over 60 overnight guests, a full-service kitchen and dish room, dining room, storage space, meeting rooms, and a perpetual Eucharistic adoration chapel.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE One neighbor recently shared about her experience at our Tuesday food pantry: “Access to meat, milk and eggs helps me immensely, especially living on disability. You leave this pantry with a full cart of groceries. It is so incredible to come here and feel valued.” To bring God’s love to others, to make known their unique personal value, is the task of all Christians. As Franciscans, we are humbled and blessed to serve as Christ’s hands and feet in countless ways here on Chicago’s west side.
HOW YOU CAN HELP Last year, Team OLA
raised an incredible $205,000. We are hoping to meet or exceed this total in
2019 with your help! Please consider making a donation in whatever amount you
can pledge. Every little bit helps! Be part of the miracle that is Team OLA and
May God bless you for your generosity. Be assured of my gratitude and prayers!
In Christ Jesus,
