Team Mission of Our Lady of the Angels will be fundraising through the
2020 Bank of America Chicago Marathon and Shamrock Shuffle!
Mission of Our Lady of the Angels exists to provide material and spiritual support to W. Humboldt Park, Chicago- one of the most challenged neighborhoods in the US. The Mission feeds about 2000 families a month, provides additional material and pastoral support to families, youth, and senior citizens, and, most importantly, brings the love of Christ to a neighborhood desperately in need of hope. More info about the Mission at www.missionola.com.
Funds raised from Team OLA 2020 will be used to:
(1) Continue to respond to the complicated needs created by COVID-19 and the social unrest of summer 2020.

(2) Help the Mission finish the renovations on its new outreach center to the neighborhood
-The new outreach center will provide the very needed space for the Mission's donation storage/ distribution, a handicapped accessible kitchen/dining room, meeting space for neighborhood and retreat groups, and a 45+ bedroom retreat center for volunteers and retreat guests.
