Home Rebuild Multi-Parish Renew My Church Event is a huge success!
On June 7-8-9, the parishes of St. Julie, St. George, St. Francis of Assisi, St. Michael, Our Lady of the Woods, Incarnation and St. Elizabeth Seton came together to build the framework of two homes for families who otherwise could not afford them. On Sunday, the semi-truck was loaded and taken to a site in DuPage County where it will be worked on thru Habitat for Humanity in the coming weeks.
There were about 500 volunteers onsite over the three days in addition to all of the volunteers who offered prayers and graciously donated food / baked goods for the event!
Special visitors included Cardinal Blaise Cupich and Bishop Andrew Wypych as well as many of our priests from the participating parishes.
Thank you to everyone for your prayers, your well-wishes that were written on the walls and for your support. This would not have happened without you. God bless you. You all rock!
Fr Ken Fleck, pastor of Saint George spearheaded this endeavor.
