St. Patrick Fathers run their U.S. headquarters and fundraising for their missions on the Northwest side of Chicago at 8422 W. Windsor Ave. It is here, that they also have established themselves as the spiritual hub for Chicago’s Irish immigrants and the greater Irish-American community.
At the upcoming fashion show, Chicago area supporters of St. Patrick Fathers will help raise monies toward their missionary work worldwide.
While their main focus continues to be the promotion of their international missionary work, their service and impact is widespread among Chicago’s Irish community.
“The St. Patrick Fathers have been a staple of the Irish Community in Chicago for many years,” said Michael Collins is the Executive Director of Chicago Irish Immigrant Support. “Their impact can be easily seen through the amount of support they give to everyday families.”
“The St. Patrick Fathers conduct countless weddings, funerals, baptisms, hospice visitation, prison support, and many more services to the community that would not otherwise be available,” added Collins.
The Chicago office of St. Patrick Fathers is run by Fathers Michael Moore and Michael “Mick” Madigan. “Father Mick” is a native of Limerick, Ireland and is the chaplain and board president for the Chicago Irish Immigrant Support, a not-for-profit immigration and social services provider, serving the Irish community of Chicago and the 19 states represented by the Consulate General of Ireland, Chicago. He was assigned to Chicago in 2012 as Director of Mission Awareness and Promotion for the U.S. Since coming to Chicago, he has become increasingly involved with the Irish community.
Creating a sense of community among Chicago’s Irish is also an important part of what the St. Patrick Father’s do here. The St. Patrick Fathers have also been a lifeline for so many elderly community members through their regular events that encourage socialization and friendship. ‘Many visitors to the Irish American Heritage Center, know the St. Patrick Fathers for the dances they sponsor as well.
