Please welcome the Grayfriars to the West Side
The Society of St. Barbara would like to welcome Fr. Robert Lombardo, CFR to the Our Lady of Angels Rectory at 3808 W. Iowa, Chicago. Fr. Lombardo has undertaken an ambitious program of sealing the rectory, then adding a Daily Mass Chapel and Eucharistic Adoration to his facility.
The Church is in tact (and leased by the Baptists). The School and Parish center are battered, standing, and in use. The Parish Garden is in need of Springtime.
Are you on the West Side of Chicago for business or pleasure? Please stop by and welcome a Grayfriar this great Catholic facility. Fr. Lombardo a 1979 Notre Dame graduate, has enjoyed great support of the Notre Dame alumni in his mission to restore the Parish to this neighborhood. Lombardo has also welcomed other alumni (including the Fighting Illini) and volunteer groups, as well as of the hardest working contractors in the Archdiocese of Chicago.
