The Christmas season is one of the best times to make a difference in the lives of others. You truly have the opportunity to be an angel to those around you!
November is a month filled with preparation. We may have the tree trimmed and a feast for our loved ones, but are we spiritually ready for the coming of Christ?
As the Feast of All Souls draws near, I find myself reflecting on friends and loved ones who have passed on, and I’m sure you do as well.
A special thank you this week to our friends at St. Lambert’s Parish, Skokie in the congregation.

As Fr. Scott Donahue discusses the life and teachings of Saint Jude, the Patron Saint of lost causes, he reflects on how many of our young people view their lives as “lost causes.” However, thanks to the intercession of Saint Jude, and to our many benefactors, our young people have the ability to thrive under the structure and direction they receive here at Mercy Home. Our young people are anything but “lost causes.”
Join our Partners in Prayer to pray for Jeanna and our boys and girls who have the opportunity for a good education thanks to you and Mercy Home.
Fr. Scott Donahue explains how words can have a strong effect on the proclamation of one’s being, relationships, and faith.
A special thank you this week to our friends Divine Mercy Crusade, Chicago in the congregation.
