There Are Many Ways to Help the Fire Foundation of Greater Chicago

The Rosewood Foundation makes it possible for partner Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Chicago to hire special educators and paraprofessionals and to acquire learning materials and technology that create successful learning experiences for all children. With grants from Rosewood, schools are able to welcome students with Down syndrome, significant learning disabilities, on the Autism spectrum, and students who face other special learning challenges. In inclusive learning environments, children grow up knowing and appreciating each other’s unique gifts.

More Ways to Support the Rosewood Foundation

Let’s keep the fire of God’s love blazing upon the earth through our prayers for inclusive education. As an individual, a family, a classroom or school, or a parish–all prayers will help our mission. And, if you’re praying along side of us, please let us know; our goal is to reach ONE MILLION collective prayersso please fill out the form below so we can tally our efforts!

Please Say the Prayer for Inclusion:

Father of all that is good and holy, we ask that You bless us with Your infinite love and mercy as we work with all students made in Your image.
Those students that read with grace, and those students that need grace to read.
Those that lift others up, and those that need to be lifted up.
Those that embrace learning, and those that need to be embraced to learn.
Those that make us smile and, those that need a smile. Grant us the knowledge, patience, and compassion to serve all.
Amen.

Ask for the Intercession of the Patron Saints of Inclusion:

Blessed Margaret of Castello, pray for us.

Blessed Herman of Reichenau, pray for us.

Saint Andre Bessette, pray for us.
