THANK YOU – Many thanks to the parishioners of St. Michael parish for your warm welcome to me and my preaching and for your generous contribution to the Archdiocesan Ministry to Victims of Domestic Violence. You contributed $2,150 after Masses on February 8-9.

Thanks so much!

On Monday, February 10th, Fr. Chuck Dahm from the Archdiocese of Chicago Domestic Violence Ministry met with over 30 parishioners who are interested in moving forward with a Domestic Violence Ministry here at St. Michael. Thank you to Fr. Chuck and the mentors he brought with him. The group decided to meet again to develop a Mission Statement and discern next steps in getting this ministry off the ground. We will focus on Awareness of the problem, Connections for Victims, and Prevention of future domestic violence in our community.

If you could not make it on February 10th and are interested in helping, please join us on February 24th for our second meeting or contact Pastoral Associate Pat Chuchla at 708-873-4652 or pchuchla@saintmike.com.
