"The Chicago Archdiocesan Council of Catholic Women in Vicariate 1 sponsor an annual "Golden Rose Award Breakfast" to honor a High School Young woman from each parish in Vicariate 1, the first Saturday of December. The recipient is selected by her parish youth minister/ pastor/or Women's Club group for showing Leadership, portraying spirituality and participating in a service project having gone above and beyond compared to her peers.
We celebrate these young women at a breakfast with a Bishop giving them a certificate, a rose pendant and this year a one year Individual High School membership to the National Council of Catholic Women."

"During Advent we get 35 baby bottles from our local Hannah Center and place them at the entrances of our church.
We ask that families take one and fill it with change for a gift to the baby Jesus and bring it back after Christmas.
Doing this we make a sacrifice , involve the whole family, and promote the spirit of giving. Last year we collected over $747 for the Hannan Center. ( A home that helps pregnant moms in need.)"
