CHICAGO (CBS) — A Catholic elementary school in Portage Park is “on a mission from God,” hoping to make a miracle happen so it can avoid being shut down by the Archdiocese.
Established in 1910, Our Lady of Victory School, at 4434 N. Laramie Av., needs to raise $400,000 in two weeks, and then $400,000 a year going forward, if it’s to avoid closing.
Two signs now hang on an office window at the school:
“I have not yet begun to fight,” a quote from Revolutionary War hero Capt. John Paul Jones; and “I’m on a mission from God,” inspired by the Blues Brothers.
