December 2022 - Christmas at the Mission Highlights

We've had several amazing Christmas events at the Mission!

We distributed gifts to ~1500 people yesterday!

We now pre-pack bags of toys to distribute to our neighbors so parents/ family of our neighborhood kids can wrap the gifts for the kids to receive on Christmas day!

Thank you to our incredible donors who made this amazing event possible - especially
St. Elizabeth of the Trinity Parish (Chicago), Notre Dame Church (Clarendon Hills), Sts. Peter and Paul Church (Naperville), Betsy’s Blankets, Holy Trinity School (Westmont), Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament (Elk Grove Village), St. John the Evangelist (St. John’s, IN), CWF Restoration, Christ the King (Beverly), St. Stephen’s (Tinley Park), Chicago Fire Department, Addison Group, Santa’s Volunteers, Mary, Seat of Wisdom Parish (Park Ridge), Benet Academy (Lisle) Bobbi-Toads, Carmel Catholic Hight School, and many more.

Our Culinary Kids luncheon for our senior citizens group, featuring a surprise appearance by the one and only Mr. T! Thank you to Comptroller Suzanna Mendoza, Chef Stephen Henry, Chef Courtney Barton, the Palmer House, and many others who made this a great day!

We hosted our neighborhood Christmas prayer service and lunch.  Each family in attendance received a Nativity set for their home! Thank you to Notre Dame Parish in Clarendon Hills for providing the Nativity sets!

All the families in our after-school program received gifts and had an awesome lunch at a separate party as well!
