Restoring Woodlawn is a Family Affair

From windows to walls, landscaping to office work, building the Shrine of Christ the King is truly a Woodlawn family affair!

Fathers and sons from the community work daily to restore and repair the historic landmark church and the surrounding grounds as mothers and daughters work together to make the Shrine of Christ the King a beautiful, safe and sacred place for us all.

All of these great people work side by side with the priests and oblate brothers of the Institute of Christ the King to bring Woodlawn’s cornerstone back to life like a phoenix from the ashes.

We are dedicated to rebuild not only an historic landmark church in Chicago’s south side, but also to pull our weight to help restore and revive a community. This very important work begins with the family.

Your financial support of the 6401 Woodlawn Heritage Foundation does much more than simply to help rebuild an historic cornerstone church, you help support and restore the real and true cornerstone of every community: the family. May God reward you for your support!
