Pizza Night

Thank you to our local pizza restaurants for their generous donations and contributions for Annual Family Pizza Night!





Funds raised through the weekend of events, including those from the MercyFest Cash Raffle, help maintain our Parish Life Center and support various programs for the community at large.

This year’s focus is Hesed House, located right here in Aurora, which supplies food and clothing to those in need as well as help homeless families get the necessary support for a fresh start. Hesed House is the second largest homeless shelter (in numbers served) in the State of Illinois, changing lives, one family at a time.


Opportunities to donate canned goods will also be available during the festival weekend. You can help by donating things such as sweat pants, thermal underwear, toilet paper, or canned goods.

We will take all these donations to Hesed House in a van donated for our use during MercyFest by Hennessey Ford. Let’s fill it to the brim and show our community how much we care!
