Enchanted Backpack comes to St. Angela!
Enchanted Backpack, a Chicago area foundation that serves under-resourced schools, has joined the team of organizations who support St. Angela! Their first visit was a memorable one. It took a team of faculty, staff and O'Rourke Prep scholars to unload their two vans on a chilly November day -- and then the whole school welcomed our new friends at a rousing assembly in the gym.
We are so grateful for the Enchanted Backpack team, and for the donors who make their generosity possible. To learn more about them visit their website.
Tax Credit Scholarship Apps next week!
New and current St. Angela families should be ready to apply for tax credit scholarships next week!

Please read this information carefully, and mark the dates on your calendar. These scholarships are distributed on a first come, first served basis. Minutes matter!
There is a slight difference in the applications for each organization, but in each case, the application is a two-part process. The first step is a quick online application, easily completed on your phone. (See the link above.) This application gives you a “time and date stamp” which then gives you (in effect) “a place in line” for the second part of the application. Minutes matter!

Complete the reservation form at bigshouldersfundsgo.org. It will ask for
parent contact information;
number in household;

Student name, birth date, race and gender

After January 14, Big Shoulders Fund will request additional information from a limited number of applicants based on the time and date stamp. Limited scholarships are available.
Wednesday, January 15 at 7:00 pm
Complete the reservation form at empowerillinois.org. It will ask you for parent name; contact information (address, phone number, email address); children’s names. Include the names of all children for whom you are applying.
Sometime on or after January 20 you will receive an email with instructions about completing the application. We recommend you complete the process immediately. Minutes matter. The rewarding of scholarships will begin the following week.
St. Angela's Centennial Year Liturgy
Green Dreams Update
It was a gray and drippy day outside but in the gym everything was warm and fuzzy! Msgr. Kenneth Velo presided at a Mass, in the Jack Jordan Gym, accompanied by Fr. Jack Ryan, Fr. Jim Flynn, Fr. Tom McDermott and Deacon William Pouncey. A procession of students, alumni, current and former members of the faculty entered to the sound of chiming bells and set the tone for a celebration of one hundred years of history in the Austin neighborhood. Following the liturgy, Msgr. Velo blessed the newly developed garden in the Potomac field, particularly the statue of St. Angela returned to our campus with the help of generous alumni.
It seemed this field, this wall, this portion of our campus would never be finished but it is--mostly! Our major goals, the tuckpointing and painting of the wall that was adjacent to the church, the installation of a garden surrounding the restored statue of St. Angela, and a sign identifying our school are in place and, we think, absolutely awesome! Enjoy the slides, but please, come and visit!

Wildcat Volunteer Corps
Volunteers are unpaid
not because they are worthless,
