Upcoming Services & Events


You Are Invited ~ IOCC Chicago’s First Virtual Event


Even through difficult times, we take comfort in the faith that unites us.

That’s why you’re invited to an online-only Zoom event for us all to be together—and help keep IOCC’s humanitarian work going, at home and abroad.

Please join us August 16, 2020 at 6:00pm CST

This virtual event promises to be a fun and engaging evening with familiar faces and news from the committee and IOCC staff.

And this year, because of a generous grant from the Renaissance Fund, every gift of $5,000 or less will be matched, dollar for dollar, up to $50,000. If we meet this match, the IOCC Chicago Virtual Event will raise a total of $100,000—please help us reach this goal!

We encourage everyone to register for this FREE event. And invite friends who might be interested, no matter where they live—because our Chicago event is virtual, it’s open to everyone.

To Register and Donate, please visit iocc.org/Chicago to make a donation—and double your impact! If you can't join the live event on August 16, your donation will still be of great help! 

Please see our Sponsorship Letter (Click Here) and Flyer (BELOW) for additional information.

Thank you for helping to make our IOCC Chicago Virtual Event a Success!

With Love in Christ,

Metropolis of Chicago IOCC Committee
