Our Collaboration

In a city of struggles, Precious Blood Ministry of Reconciliation is a bright light that serves the youth and adults of Chicago who have been impacted by violence and incarceration. We are grateful to the students and associates who served with Precious Blood Ministry's juvenile detention ministry for 15 years, prior to the jails being closed to outsiders due to COVID. Additionally, every year Sheil community members support youth in the Precious Blood Ministry programs through the Mitten Tree and we purchase all Sheil t-shirts and sweatshirts from the Precious Blood Ministry print shop that provides meaningful employment to youth and young adults.
