    St. Matthias Raised $600K For School Addition, Now Archdiocese Says 'Nope'
    LINCOLN SQUARE - The Archdiocese of Chicago pulled the plug on St. Matthias parish's plans to build an addition to its school - after parishioners spent four years raising more than $600,000 toward the expansion project. The Rev. Larry McNally, pastor of St. Matthias, first shared the news in a letter published in the weekly church bulletin.

  • Years ago, Saint Frances of Rome in Cicero, was told they needed to raise $80,000 to fix the roof on their Church. After raising the money, they arrived to drop their children off at school one morning to see that their church was being torn down. The $80,000 went to the Archdiocese.

  • The catholic church is the biggest fraud around.

    Sincerely

    The Best 'Anti-Brunch' Breakfast Spots In Chicago, Where You Can Eat All Week
    fullscreen By Michael Gebert One of the questions I get as a food writer is, "Where's a good place for brunch?" The answer is, I have no freakin' idea. When you have kids, the idea of lounging away 2-1/2 hours with food and cocktails starting at noon makes about as much sense as suggesting Napa wineries for a family vacation.

Bears Commission Murals Around Chicago As NFL Season Kicks Off

There's another just completed in Lincoln Square, on the wall of Roots Pizza, 2200 W. Lawrence Ave., executed by Amuse 126. The Bears tweeted that one out as well.

The Bears are having a handful of wall murals done to open the season, executed by local street artists. Sick Fisher is doing one on the side of the Wild Hare, 2610 N. Halsted St.

Sara Dulkin, owner of the Chicago Truborn gallery, 1741 W. Chicago Ave., which was commissioned by the Bears to put the murals together, said the idea was to make the works "interactive," so fans could blend into the work.

That's typical of his whimsy, as he recently painted a cross-section of the operations at the Horween Leather Company on the back of its factory at Elston and Armitage avenues as part of another mural project.
