The good people at the Archdiocese of Chicago in their campaign , To Teach Who Christ Is recognize a beautiful church and it’s value as a representation of the style of churches built in the inner city of Chicago, a spiritual place that draws people in and reminds them of the highest ideals of their faith and why they should donate to the cause of helping to maintain and provide for the future of all of the parishes of Chicago. In using the image of St. Adalbert they see it as the quintessential Catholic church, built by the parishioners in the last century perhaps, but having a lasting value in its intrinsic beauty and essentially of providing a stabilizing force in the community by its very presence. We are very honored that they choose our beautiful church and are using this image in a campaign to further enhance, rebuild and provide for educational funds for parishes. Why then do they seek to turn their back on this very church and most importantly on the people who are being provided faithful Catholic succor and who in turn would seek actively to help maintain this very church? Much in the manner of the campaign, we seek to help restore and maintain our church. We just want to be given the opportunity that this very campaign is affording all the rest of the parishes. We have over a $1 million in raised funds and many more pledges and funds coming in daily. This is no small effort, plus with community groups such as The Resurrection Project (TRP) and art groups who support this effort, we seek to form partnerships to bring even more to the table. We hope the Archdiocese of Chicago seeks to hear out the many voices of the people in this community in this endeavor and not just one voice.
