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!
On Saturday November 23 we hosted a Prayer Breakfast for our neighborhood. Every family received a turkey and all the trimmings for their Thanksgiving Dinner. We are so grateful for all those who helped make this a beautiful celebration of God’s love and our gratitude for all He has done to sustain the Mission and help us provide for our brothers and sister in need. Enjoy the pictures!
