We are thrilled to announce that the St. James Annual Mercy Box program will be a part of our Christmas charities this year. Fr Matt has, again, identified several inner city parishes with families struggling to make ends meet. This year St. James will deliver “Mercy Boxes,” to needy families in St Malachy, St Agatha and Assumption Blessed Virgin Mary Parishes in Chicago. The spirit of Christmas is alive as these food boxes benefit a very diverse group of our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ .As always we will need volunteers in order for this program to be a success. A signup genius has been created to facilitate parishioners ( teens & Adults) participating in the collection of boxes.
