Running for the Least of the Lord's Brothers and Sisters

Ok everybody, I am back in training to run the 2022 Bank of America Chicago Marathon to support Mission of Our Lady of the Angels! All the details below, but basically, they are an awesome Religious Community in the midst of Chicagor that feeds, clothes, teaches, and brings to Jesus thousands of families every month. They're doing amazing work, and bringing into the world Christ's amazing love. And ... the team running the marathon brings in many of the prayers, sacrifices, and finances that make that possible. 

Willing to join in? Please send prayers up for the sisters and brothers at OLA, and for everyone they serve, and those of us running on October 9th! And, if you can donate to them, that would be amazing as well! Thank you for any and all of that!

And here's even more information: The Mission of Our Lady of the Angels exists to provide material and spiritual support to W. Humboldt Park, Chicago, one of the most challenged neighborhoods in the US. The Mission feeds about 3000 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 2022 will be used to:

(1) Help the Mission expand its food pantry + other material distributions

-Mission of Our Lady of the Angels currently serves about 3000 families a month- and growing!

-Help the Mission continue to expand and improve this outreach. 

(2) Help the Mission successfully start using its new outreach center!

- Mission OLA will be rolling out all of the *new* things in its new outreach center in 2022. The new 57 bedroom retreat center and social service outreach spaces will start to be put to use.

-There will be costs for last minute fixes of the building as well as for getting the programming rolling! Help support this roll out! 

Donate today to be part of the miracle that is TEAM OLA!

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