Since his arrival in 2014, Cardinal Cupich has benefited from discussions on a variety of issues with the AWC. These exchanges have been informed by the members’ consultation with women in the Chicago archdiocese as we bring the voices of women forward. This year, beginning in March, we will be discussing the topic of what causes Catholic women to stay in or leave their Church. We ask your help as we prepare for our discussions with the Cardinal, by participating in this consultation.
This guide can be found in the church near the Font, or online in English HERE, and in Spanish HERE.

2020 Annual Catholic Appeal
Come, follow me… and heal our world
Next weekend, our parish will be conducting the
Annual Catholic Appeal in-pew Commitment Weekend. Please remember that the Annual
Catholic Appeal is much different than a one-time special collection. It is a pledge campaign where you can make a gift payable in installments.
The Annual Catholic Appeal theme, “Come, follow me… and heal our world,” was selected to remind us to continue to answer Jesus’ call to follow Him in thought, word and deed by providing the necessary contribution to fund ministries and services to share God’s love with many others in our parish and our archdiocese.
Each pledge makes a difference! All parishes
communities participate in the campaign and the gifts of many enable our parishes, schools, and
ministries to deliver needed services.
Thank you for your prayerful consideration and
