Helping others on Thanksgiving

Catholics throughout the archdiocese spend Thanksgiving reaching out to neighbors on the margins
Families from St. Giles Parish and Redeemer Lutheran Church pack 300 Thanksgiving meals for those in need as part of a joint effort to help those in their community of Oak Park on Nov. 23. Shortly after the food was delivered they held a traditional Thanksgiving feast for the public. (Karen Callaway/Chicago Catholic)
Volunteers work in the kitchen preparing an ethnic Thanksgiving feast for those in need at St. Aloysius Church, 2300 W. Le Moyne St., on Nov. 23. The parish handed out food baskets a few days before with donations from parishes throughout the archdiocese, packed meals Thanksgiving day for shut-ins, and had coats available for those attending the dinner.
