The newly-formed Peace & Justice Committee at Queen of Angels has launched a new website, www.peaceandjusticechicago.com, to help spread the word and do the work of their ministry. Here are a few of the initiatives the committee is working on:
Celebrate World Fair Trade Day on May 9 at Queen of Angels!
Fair Trade Coffee Tasting and Sale
Before and after 9:30, 11 and 12:30 masses, the Peace and Justice Committee will provide information and resources on how Queen of Angels parishioners can support Fair Trade. Parishioners may also buy bags of fair trade coffee before and after these masses. Go here for more.
Who is Uninsured in Chicago and Illinois?
The second of a series of articles in anticipation of Cover the Uninsured Week (May 10 to 16), an effort to raise awareness about the problems of the uninsured and to offer a chance for parishioners to reflect on issues of faith, health and justice.
Thank you for Making our Sunday School Students' Work with Heifer a Success
The Queen of Angels Religious Education program and the parish peace and justice committee would like to say thank you to all the CCD students and their family and friends for their generous donations to the Heifer Project’s efforts to fight poverty and hunger. The students raised over $475 and this amount was doubled through a matching grant.
