SAINT ALPHONSUS LIGUORI PARISH AND SCHOOL HELP THE FIRE VICTIMS!

 

Saint Alphonsus Liguori Parish and School joined on Sunday, July 22, with several other organizations to give back to the community.  We sponsored a pancake breakfast fundraiser for the victims of the devastating fire in Prospect Heights.   Over a hundred families lost everything!  Many organizations helped support this event including the fire/police department, the Lions Club, as well as other churches.  Thank you to everyone who came and gave so generously. Thousands of dollars were raised and one hundred percent of the donations are going directly to the fire victims.  As well, clothing and other items are pouring in!  Saint Alphonsus Liguori is proud and grateful to be a part of such a wonderful community.

Dear Parents and Guardians:

#Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #Giving Tuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

We are sending this reminder that we are accepting donations to the Sr. Agnes Scholarship Fund. Any funds raised will help our school budget and reduce the subsidy money needed from the Parish.  We use these funds to help new and existing families who otherwise would not be able to be in our school.  Many corporations will match donations by employees to non-profit organizations.  Checks can be made out to Saint Alphonsus Liguori School.  Please indicate this is a donation on your check for tax purposes.  You may also donate by credit card through https://www.givecentral.org/location/465/event/12089

Thank you so much for your support of our school in every way, every day!

Saint Alphonsus Liguori School students celebrated and honored Veterans and First Responders at the Veteran's Day School Mass on Friday, November 10, 2017.  Students escorted Veterans and First Responders into the church, walking through a tunnel of American Flags.  The patriotic music stirred everyone's hearts, and smiles and tears spread through the church.  The PSA gave a lovely reception for all attending.  Thank you to our Veterans and First Responders.  We owe you a debt that can never be repaid.
