Blessing the Ground of New South Side Facility

The Alexian Brothers AIDS Ministry proudly celebrated the ground blessing of a new facility — our future permanent supportive housing facility on Chicago’s South Side — on December 2, 2010.  The ceremony was held to celebrate the beginning of work on the new facility and to pray for the people involved with Bettendorf’s construction and future mission.

Bishop Joseph Perry offered the opening prayer, and after the readings and other prayers, he blessed the grounds and building with holy water.  Other speakers at the ceremony included Michelle Wetzel, CEO and Brother Daniel McCormick, President of the Alexian Brothers AIDS Ministry.
