We are sad to report that Mission Outreach closed its Chicago warehouse because of financial considerations. While it was open, St. Mary’s was one of its most dedicated and generous supporters sending over 200 volunteers, ranging from seniors to confirmation candidates. Entire families went to help. Even one of our kindergarten classes sent glittering ornaments that decorated the first Christmas tree.
There is no doubt that many lives were saved and illnesses overcome because of the supplies we helped send to patients who have almost nothing. New friends were made and old friendships strengthened among St. Mary’s members. Christ’s love was sent throughout the world.
Although this ministry has ended, we invite you to continue to do good in the world by volunteering for other Service Outreach efforts.
