Fr. Bob Lombardo, our superior and founder, marked 25 years as a Priest of Jesus Christ on May 12, 2015! We hosted an Anniversary Mass and dinner for him at Our Lady of the Angels Church on April 25, 2015. We are grateful for Fr. Bob’s witness of fidelity and service!


Our friends at Salt + Light just featured our community on their new series, The Church Alive. We are grateful to Fr. Tom Rosica, Cheridan, Sebastian and the crew for so skillfully and beautifully sharing the story about God’s providence at work here at the Mission of Our Lady of the Angels. Please enjoy and share with your friends!



Our community met Archbishop Blase Cupich on November 19, 2014 at a Prayer Service for Religious and Consecrated men and women held at Holy Name Cathedral. Welcome Archbishop Cupich!

The Franciscans of the Eucharist of Chicago are a Catholic religious community living and serving in Chicago’s West Humboldt Park neighborhood. Our life centers upon our relationship with Jesus Christ in the Eucharist. Out of our life of prayer flow our apostolates–Eucharistic Adoration, service to the poor, Evangelization and teaching. We believe that if you can’t see Jesus in the Eucharist, you can’t see Him in the poor. Come join us as we work to serve our brothers and sisters in need!


“Hold back nothing of yourselves for yourselves, that He who gives Himself totally to you, may receive you totally!” ~ St. Francis of Assisi
