Archangel Award 2014: Francis Cardinal George, O.M.I

The Archangel Award was created in order to honor those individuals whose leadership and generosity of spirit is of exemplary service to our school. Without the example, faith and guidance or Cardinal George, we would not have experienced and enjoyed a near 200% enrollment increase in recent years, and our doors may well have been closed.

His dedication to not only St. Mary of the Angels School, but to every Catholic school throughout the city of Chicago is truly inspiring. We were blessed to witness the passion & dedication of Francis Cardinal George first-hand when in 2007, with our enrollment plummeting below 100 students, his Eminence stepped forward with a challenge to turn our school around. It was through his faith and example that our school was able to rally and create a new and bright future for the St. Mary of the Angels community, which has grown to now over 280 students for the 2013-2014 school year. We firmly believe that Our Lady’s intercession and his commitment to Catholic education and trust in our administration has opened our doors to a brighter and more sustainable future. We look forward to providing a strong Catholic education and sharing the Catholic faith with students for generations to come. Every decision we make will be guided by Our Lady’s love & wisdom and our Cardinal’s shining example of leadership and perseverance.

Now again, with the Archdiocesan campaign, “To Teach Who Christ Is”, we have been inspired to go even further, to strive for not only a sustainable future, but a brighter and better one. In the words our Holy Father, Pope Francis, “Do not be afraid to dream of great things.” Here at St. Mary of the Angels School, under the leadership of Cardinal Francis George, we are looking to raise $3.5 million, so that we can expand & improve our facilities and open our doors to over 500 students, sharing the Catholic faith with even more families, bringing these children and parents closer to God.

We believe that the presence of our distinguished Cardinal George at our Angels of Hope celebration will proclaim to our community that St. Mary of the Angels is dreaming, working towards and preparing for great things. With his help, leadership, faith and guidance and through the intercession of our Blessed Mother, we know that we will have the energy and momentum to continue to grow and to move forward, bringing more families closer to God. We are honored that his Eminence has accepted this award as a small, though insufficient, token of our deepest appreciation. Cardinal George is an asset and a blessing to the city of Chicago, a true Archangel, leading us towards a more vital and sustainable future. We thank him, from the bottom of our hearts.

We are honored to celebrate all that Cardinal George has done for us, and for all Catholic schools, at our Angels of Hope event. God bless.
