Kolbe House Jail Ministry
Want to get rid of those extra, unused Christmas cards in your house? Fr. Francis collects Christmas Cards and stamps to bring to Kolbe House Jail Ministry to give those imprisoned the opportunity to send cards to their friends, family and loved ones.
Please drop off your donations at the rectory or back of church no later than a week before Christmas.
About Kolbe House...
Kolbe House is the agency of the Department of Parish Vitality and Mission of the Archdiocese of Chicago that serves individuals and families affected by the criminal justice system.
Compelled by the Gospel mandate, “I was in prison and you visited me,” Kolbe House at Assumption BVM — a parish-based jail ministry — is a sanctuary for those impacted by incarceration. We seek to promote restoration and reconciliation through outreach, support and accompaniment. We follow the example of St. Maximilian Kolbe to love and hope in the midst of evil and despair.
You can learn more about Kolbe House on the Archdiocese of Chicago's website.
