Our Lady of the Angels Mission
The Mission of Our Lady of the Angels, in West Humboldt Park, is a big part of our parish stewardship outreach. Volunteers from St. Paul of the Cross go there on the first Saturday of every month to help distribute food to the neighborhood with The Greater Chicago Food Depository. Over 250 households are currently being served. Our volunteers have helped clean and renovate the rectory, Kelly Hall, the newly rededicated convent, and now the actual church. Our Holy Family Guild works to maintain the food pantry there. Cardinal Frances George has long wished for a strong Catholic identity to be restored in that neighborhood since parishioners began to move away after the fire. To learn more please visit The Mission of Our Lady of the Angels website.
If you are interested in carpooling on a food distribution Saturday, or have any questions please call Social Service Ministry at (847) 692-6767.
