The Archdiocese of Chicago hopes you have taken the opportunity to be counted by returning your completed Census 2010 form. It is important! The Census is how critical demographic information is gathered, analyzed and acted on for the next ten years. Representation decisions in our local, state and federal government legislatures are based on this information. Likewise resources and services are allocated using census data. For the sake of all of us, we need those numbers to be accurate and inclusive.

I am here with a small group of people who are part of an organization called the “Friends of Kenyan Orphans.”
