Mother of the Americas Parish welcomed the Little Village community to a family friendly event this past Sunday. Tepeyac girls were glad to be a part of it
Fun and Games For All! Last year, Our Lady of Tepeyac, Assumption BVM and St. Roman's Parish united to form Mother of the Americas Parish. We are celebrating together at the church at Cermak & Whipple. The schools will retain their names.
The Kermes, Spanish for a Catholic bazaar or fundraiser, was organized and run by the parish. There was great food, music, games and more! A few students ran a booth to provide free face painting for the children. The kids were beaming with joy! We also provided fans to the people who attended - they came in handy, particularly because of the hot day. We even got Fr. Tom in the dunk tank! The Kermes was a great way at bring our community together. The newly united parish has also been holding street masses to promote unity and peace. Read more here.
