Dearly Beloved Friends of Madonna Renewal Center and the IHM Sisters (Blue Nuns)! Onward, dear friends as we march toward our noble goal! “Come on! Join our happy throng. Blend with ours your voices. In the triumph song: Glory, laud, and honor unto Christ, the King through countless ages men and angels sing.” Thank You Jesus!
Madonna Renewal Center continues to enjoy the support of many Churches some of who pledged their ongoing support by including MRC in their monthly tithe or made out donation to MRC. These Churches will be duly acknowledged. However, 3 Churches played key role in helping us sell off all our 500 raffle tickets. We are truly grateful and continue to look forward to their ongoing support. St. Patrick Church McHenry bought many tickets and brought in cash donations, St. Mary Church Huntley not only bought about 100 tickets, they brought in generous cash donations, and St. Thomas Church Freeport bought many tickets. God bless you. Permit me to share my amazing Huntley story.
