St. Matthew Church in Champaign, IL, has provided a genourous donation to Children of Hope and Faith. This gift of treasure to help those most in need is greatly appreciated. The donation will fund scholarships and tuition assistance to enable more students the opportunity to receive a grade school and high school Catholic education. It will also assist some of our students in post high school education.

Congratulations to our Graduates!

Cycling for the Children

The Gottemoller family traveled to Tanzania with Fr. Johndamaseni Zilimi in June 2008 and returned with huge hearts for the orphans and needy children there. Paula and Paul participated in the Great Ohio Bike Adventure (GOBA) in 2009 and raised money toward the expansion of Angel Home Orphanage. Their desire to help the children in Africa led them to adopt three siblings from Ethiopia in 2010. Mark and Katherine are now 9 yrs. old and Maria is 6 yrs. old.
