Catholic Charities has made my life so much more comfortable and safe since I moved into the Bernadin Manor Senior Housing Building in Calumet City, Illinois.

I volunteer for the Congregate Meal Program, and along with the activities and events of the Josephine P. Argento Senior Center (located inside Bernadin Manor) and the many Catholic Charites outings throughout the year (including the Senior Unity Mass and the Christmas Liturgy), I am kept active while living here.

I first learned about Bernadin Manor through an advertisement in the Chicago Sun-Times. The application process was very easy and in June of 2000 I moved into my apartment. It has been a wonderful 17 years in this facility and I am grateful for the staff that truly care about our health and welfare.

Without the care and concern of Catholic Charities I honestly don’t know where my life would have ended up. Thank you so much Catholic Charities and congratulations on celebrating 100 years!!!!!!!
