The Consejo Hispano of the Archdiocese of Chicago will host the “Buen Samaritano” awards ceremony, an event where we will shine a very well-deserved spotlight on Latino members of our archdiocese that have worked tirelessly and selflessly in our communities for the good of all throughout this pandemic.

Our Latino population has not only faced the brunt of the pandemic but has also been engaged in serving the community as essential workers and first responders and have also volunteered in great numbers to keep many of our churches open and safe.

So please join us in prayer as we celebrate these courageous men and women who have put their faith in action.

***Pastors have been invited to recognize a member of your parish community and can still access the nomination form using the link below. ***
