Tolton Icon Blessing 8.30.19
Bishop Joseph N. Perry, Auxiliary Bishop of Chicago celebrated at the mass for our first Ignatian Value Days of our Sesquicentennial school year on Friday, August 30, 2019. Bishop Perry gave some reflections on the rich history of The Venerable Fr. Augustus Tolton and the context of his ministry in Chicago around the time Fr. Arnold Damen, SJ, and his companions were in their first years at 1076 Roosevelt Road. Bishop Perry then blessed two icons of The Venerable Fr. Augustus Tolton that will hang prominently in the school.
