CHICAGO, IL [DOM] – On November 22, the faithful of Christ the Savior Church, Chicago, IL, celebrated their 10th anniversary serving a Thanksgiving meal in the Little Village neighborhood of Chicago. The annual meal brings together bereaved families who have lost loved ones through tragic circumstances.
The event began with two days of food preparation and decoration organized by Chef Charlie Baggs, Inc., with the assistance of volunteers from the Christ the Savior and Grupo Consuelo. Priest Esteban Vázquez, Diocesan Vice-Chancellor, and Priest John Kennerk, Rector, served the “Glory to God for All Things” akathist in both Spanish and English. A full Thanksgiving meal with dessert was then served to over 225 people.
The parish wishes to thank especially Fr. Tom Boharic and the faithful of Mother of the Americas Parish for supporting these families and providing their facilities for such a meaningful event.
If you wish to support or assist these efforts, Christ the Savior Church is also pleased to serve a panikhida and Christmas meal for Grupo Consuelo later in December. Donation opportunities are available for this event. For more information, contact: email@example.com.
