June Pancake Breakfast
On Sunday, June 5, the Knights of Columbus will host their last Pancake Breakfast of the school year in the BrownMcCarthy Auditorium from 8:30 - 11:00am. As we begin to shift into the warmer summer months, we say “so long” to this tradition. The beneficiary of this event is Several Sources Shelters (http://www.severalsourcesfd.org). Over 20,000 babies have been saved through their efforts since Founder Kathy DiFiore took into her own home her first pregnant teenager in 1981. Kathy says that she started with the Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi, "Make me a channel of Your Peace. Where there is darkness let me sow light. Where there is sadness let me bring joy."
From that humble beginning, Several Sources Shelters has grown to five houses that provide homes and continuing support for single and often abused mothers-to-be, pre and post natal care for their children, and comprehensive help in nurturing and educating these new families to become loving and self-sufficient. With an online presence, Several Sources Shelters has counseled women from Poland to the Philippines to Australia. Twice each month they conduct Bible Study and teach Holy Chastity to all residents. Several Sources Shelters’ goal is to help the young mothers change their lifestyles so that in the future they will have an education, good parenting skills, God's Holy Word in their lives and help them to build the best lives possible for themselves and their children. Without the support of caring donors they could not continue this life saving work. Please, if you are able to donate, consider doing so and extend your support to those who have nowhere else to turn.
