Lenten Suppers – Fifth Year

For the 5th year, the decision of what to serve for Friday meals during Lent was an easy one. Parishioners, families, and friends came to St. John the Evangelist Church in Streamwood for their Lenten Suppers. The suppers were served in the Parish Center every Friday from March 3rd – April 7th (No Lenten Supper was held on Good Friday – April 14th).

 

This was a parish event with volunteers from parish including the Knights of Columbus who cooked, the Ladies Auxiliary who served, and the Boy Scouts who helped setup and cleanup. Besides the chance for a good meal, it was also an opportunity for socializing and most importantly praying the Stations of the Cross after the supper. Here are a few images from the suppers.  Thank you to all that volunteered and to all that supported the event with your attendance.

Pink & Blue Silent Auction and Banquet

The Ladies Auxiliary and Respect Life Committee were in charge of the Silent Auction/Raffle for the Pink and Blue Banquet for the McGivney Center of Hope and Healing. The annual fundraising banquet was held in August at the Belvedere, 1170 W. Devon Ave Elk Grove Village. Preparation for the auction began months in advance, as donations were obtained and baskets created by the ladies. Fifteen Ladies were on hand for the event, several Knights were also in attendance, and both groups had ads in the dinner program booklet to help support this worthy cause.

Father Michael J. McGivney Center of Hope and Healing is a 501c3 corporation which provides Grants to Homes in Illinois that empower women who choose LIFE.  The Homes they support are an extension of the work of Pregnancy Assistance Centers. Each woman is treated on an individual basis. Recognizing the talents of the human person, programs are designed to help each person to use their talents to achieve eventual self‐sufficiency to help themselves and their child. Residents are eighteen years of age or older, usually referred by one of the more than 300 Pregnancy Assistance Centers in the State of Illinois and of various racial/ethnic backgrounds.

Requests for funds to support this mission were over $250,000.  Last year they were able to award grants to five Homes for a total amount of $75,000.     As you can see they fell far short of what is needed to help these homes provide help to Women and Babies.
