Changes in Bucktown

Jezu ufam Tobie! These words summarize what our Lord taught St. Faustina—Jesus I trust in you—and are now displayed on the base of our statue of the Heart of Divine Mercy and Love!  Throughout our history St. Mary of the Angels parishioners have responded to the call to place out trust in Jesus.

For All Generations Campaign

We have been entrusted with a great treasure: St. Mary of the Angels church.

Through your prayer and financial help we rebuilt the Dome in 2010, restored the South Tower in 2012, eliminated our debt in 2013, and have now raised over $1 million in donations and pledges ear-marked for restoration, but our needs are greater.
