Remember Charter Day? A fun November half-day kicking off Thanksgiving break with Mass in the theater, plenty of sweet treats back in homeroom, learning which family from Marillac House your homeroom would be adopting, enjoying the highly anticipated, ICC-sponsored Charter Day Show and inter-class contest for the most “talent,” all capped off with a birthday cake and everyone singing “Happy Birthday” to our dear Marillac High School.

Charter Day was plenty of fun, but also a time to honor and celebrate the spirit of St. Louise that had been handed down to each girl who walked the Marillac halls and to extend that spirit through the homeroom gift collection and Christmas Party at Marillac House.

It is in that same spirit that the Coming Home Legacy invites you to celebrate Charter Day once again on “Giving Tuesday,” November 29, 2016, from 6 - 8pm to connect with fellow alums, and to lend time, talent, and/or treasure to the work still being done by the Daughters of Charity in Chicago through Marillac St. Vincent Family Services and St. Joseph Services.

JOIN US, in any of the following ways!

  • At Marillac St. Vincent (2145 N. Halsted) on the 29th from 6 - 8pm and bring an unwrapped gift from the wish list. RSVP BELOW. Connect with fellow alums, enjoy wine and cheese and take a tour of the Marillac St. Vincent Family Services facility.  There is parking for 50 cars in the Marillac St. Vincent Family Services parking garage as well as street parking.  And Spot Hero is always there for you as well.
  • In spirit—purchase a gift off the wish list. Please use the following shipping address: Marillac St. Vincent Family Services, Attn. Colleen Sacks, MHS; 2145 N. Halsted, Chicago, IL 60614.
  • In spirit—make a donation to support the Marillac Legacy: Coming Home campaign, benefiting the educational programs of Marillac St. Vincent and St. Joseph Family Services. Help us reach our end of year goal! See our website for more information , including matching gift information.

All donated gifts will be used in the Marillac St. Vincent Family Services Christmas Store or at the annual St. Joseph Services holiday party.

The Marillac St. Vincent Family Services Christmas Store, where MSV families shop for presents for their loved ones, is open December 17th from 8:00 am - 12:00 pm and is in need of volunteers! Sign up here to help run the gift shop with fellow Marillac alums.
