ST. BENEDICT CHURCH TH

100 BIRTHDAY SPONSORSHIP PACKAGES


WHY ARE WE CELEBRATING?

This upcoming year is extra special for St. Benedict as we are celebrating the 100th birthday of our landmark church building on Irving Park Road. St Benedict parish was founded in the Northcenter community in 1902 when local Catholics sought to have Catholic schooling for their children closer to home. By 1916, the parish had grown to approximately 800 families and the building of a larger church structure was imperative. The small wooden church on the corner of Irving Park Road and Leavitt Street was moved and replaced by the current landmark house of worship. This project began in 1917 and was a great addition to the Northcenter community when completed in 1918.

HOW YOU CAN HELP?

During 2017, we will be honoring and celebrating the birthday of our church at our annual fundraisers-Mass & Gala (aka Ball & Auction), BenFest, and the Fun Run. Over 6,000 people attend these events including parishioners, school parents, and community members. This year we are providing an opportunity for you or your company to secure an annual sponsorship that includes recognition throughout the year at all three fundraising events. Our packages include both traditional and new benefits such as advertisement in our 100th Birthday Commemorative Book and on Irving Park Road street banners. These packages have potential to generate a significant amount of traffic and visibility for your company with potential of over 2 million impressions, hits, and view over the upcoming year.

WHY INVEST IN ST. BENEDICT PARISH AND PREPARATORY SCHOOL? St. Benedict Parish has a strong presence on the northside of Chicago. The parish reflects the true presence of Christ and His church in our community. Our century-old church is the foundation of our parish. Upon this foundation rest our school and an abundance of community ministries. Our five commissions seek to build up our community: •

The SPIRITUAL LIFE COMMISSION is comprised of all the ministries that help to plan and ensure the participation of the laity at all our gatherings for prayer and worship focusing on making our Sunday liturgy an exceptional weekly encounter with Christ and His Church.

The HUMAN CONCERNS COMMISSION represents our outreach to a wide variety of people in the Chicago area struggling to survive at the margins of our society. We minister to those among us with spiritual, physical, social and economic needs, and to those experiencing lack and loss. We are Christianity in action. Your investment supports the work of the parish which includes: - Providing a monthly food collection to the Common Pantry - Thanksgiving, Christmas & Easter dinners for several hundred in the community who might otherwise be alone at the holidays - Annual Advent Food Drive which allows the St. Vincent de Paul Society to deliver baskets of food to provide a full Christmas dinner and more to 37 families.

Our ADULT AND CHILD CATECHESIS COMMISSION is the collection of ministries dedicated to life long learning around the celebration of sacraments and around different moments in our lives. Your investment supports: - Programs and retreats for those that are beginning their marriage and starting a family - Youth ministry that empowers our young people to support their larger community - Religious Education Programs for public school children in grades K-8 - SPRED education for the developmentally challenged
