All Saints has a $150K hole in the wall

All Saints Episcopal Church, one of the oldest churches in the Ravenswood community is facing a deteriorating physical condition.

In this video, the church discusses a hole in the north wall foundation.

The church is starting a capital foundation to restore the exterior of the building.

All Saints supports a community kitchen for the poor and homeless through Ravenswood Community Services. It also supports efforts to rebuild New Orleans.

The campaign hopes to raise $150,000, according to the church website. Not all the funds will be used to fill the hole (it made a nice headline though).

Listen to a sermon from Rev. Bonnie Perry that discusses the hole and the needs of the church. (MP3)

About Patrick Boylan

Patrick grew up near LaFollette Park on the West Side. He contends that the very best Italian beef sandwiches are made on the West Side and has a strange love of the flat pizza from that part of the city. Patrick led The Bulldog to win seven journalism awards in 2011, including four awards to Patrick as a solo or a team member. He is very proud of The Dog's coverage of politics and schools in the neighborhood. Patrick wrote for the Times of Northwest Indiana as a stringer covering Cook County Government, for the Chicago Tribune as a stringer on the Chicago Wolves and for ChicagoNow as a writer before starting The Dog. He wrote for four years for ChiTownDailyNews.org as a media commentator and spent about 20 years in operations at city newspapers, including nine years as owner of his own distribution company. Prior to that he spent about nine years in public relations. Patrick has a Masters degree from the University of Colorado. He attended Eastern Illinois University for undergrad and Weber High School and St. Peter Canisius grammar school. The two-flat he owns was built in 1912 and has never been featured, to his knowledge, in any major motion pictures despite having a way-cool garden. Patrick purchased the property in 1994 and "couldn't afford to buy it now." His daughter is a college student in California. He lives in the house with his wife, Jane, and two cats who often sit in on his phone interviews.
