During our state championship volleyball tournament November 15-17, Mother McAuley and Brother Rice families were blessed by the hospitality of the residents in downstate Illinois who quickly opened their homes and businesses to our families for safety as they traveled through the severe storms. The Mighty Macs and Crusaders, led by our Student Councils and National Honor Society, are giving back to the families devastated by these tornadoes and storms. They are holding a new toy, gift card, or dollar drive to help these families during the upcoming Christmas season. Read more.
