We paid tribute to an amazing and inspirational man this week. Many years ago, Fr. Jack Farry put in motion the relationship we have with Uganda and the possibility of our program, One Heart Uganda. He first met Fr. Matthias at St. Thomas the Apostle in Hyde Park and later invited him back to our community on an annual basis. This relationship blossomed into our partnership with families and students in Uganda.

The love and inspiration Fr. Jack shared with our northside Chicago community is still felt. People shared stories of how he changed their lives for the better and his continued presence during his memorial services. We are honored and humbled in working to carry on his vision of generosity and peace.
