Homeless young man

There is a young man (approx. 18-22) who wanders around Archer between Western and Kedzie. He is tall and thin and appears to be in poor health and stability. He hasn't attached anyone (that I know) and talks out loud to himself. Last night he wandered from the State Farm office on 38th to the corner by the laundromat. I pray that the gang bangers don't go off on him. He's somebody's son or brother or uncle. My heart goes out to him.

what would jesus do?

St. Pancratius has been a terrible neighbor:
The latest issue is their church bells. They ring starting at 6 a.m., and play music for about 10 minutes every hour, on the hour, starting at 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. This totals about 2 hours of bell ringing and music everyday, 7 days a week. We expect a church to play bells and music; we just ask that it be reasonable in a residential neighborhood.

St. Pancratius has been a terrible neighbor:
The latest issue is their church bells. They ring starting at 6 a.m., and play music for about 10 minutes every hour, on the hour, starting at 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. This totals about 2 hours of bell ringing and music everyday, 7 days a week. We expect a church to play bells and music; we just ask that it be reasonable in a residential neighborhood.
We spoke to the priest, Bruno Chmiel directly, and when we asked for a reasonable compromise, he said “This is a Spanish neighborhood, you should move.” (We are white) If I ever said that to a Hispanic person, it would be considered highly offensive and racist.
We have contacted the archdiocese, and the alderman, Cardenas. So far no one has intervened.
Previously, they used to have parties at a noise level that shook the entire neighborhood that went on well past midnight (not following their permit). Gang members would hang on the periphery drinking and throwing bottles with little to no security. One year a man was shot in the leg directly in front of our building.
The city finally denied their permit after many years of crime problems tied to their parties.
Members of the community and the Catholic church should speak up and remind the church that they do not own the neighborhood and please be respectful of their neighbors.

Avoiding Responsibility: The Schools They Don’t Want

“It’s kind of like government abandonment of whole areas” says Lipman. “Look at the West Side area where they just did the turn-around at Dvorak, for example, there’re almost no public schools left in that area,” claims Prof. Lipman.
