Suicide and drug addiction
are subjects none of us wants to think about, but we all must – for the good and safety of our precious children.  Please join two expert presenters on October 11th in the Spirit Center. Mary Cucarola, Founder of Cody's Fresh Start Charity Works, started the public charity in memory of her son, who died from a drug overdose at age 26 on September 25, 2013.  Cody grew up in the Catholic school system attending St. Anne's School and Holy Family High School.  Addiction can happen to anyone's child, and Mary will educate and give insights into the disease of addiction.  Steven Bennett, PhD, LPC an individual and family therapist, co-founder of Heart Works, a Narrative Therapy Center, and professor at Regis University, will speak about how the high rates of suicide affecting our young people reflects, and is a response to, the spiritual crisis that is plaguing our sense of community.  As you have seen recently in the news, these diseases infect all levels of society, so come and find out how you can make a difference in this Year of Mercy

October 15/16 - ANAWIM Collection for Medical Equipment

This is a heads up on our future Drive in which we will be collecting used medical equipment for the Dominican Home Health Agency. They are one of our Grant Recipients. Since 1923, the mission of Dominican Home Health Agency, Inc. has been to provide quality nursing care and related services to the sick in their homes. They give priority to the poor, foster the integrity of family life and assist the elderly and chronically ill to stay at home. They provide these services without regard to the origin, creed or to the status of the individual. They will protect the life of all people. They are prepared to adapt to the changing needs of the community and those they serve. All the equipment is loaned to the individual in need with no cost to them. When they are finished using the equipment it comes back to the agency to be cleaned and ready for the next person. We will have flyers by weekend of September 24/25 for you to take home with the list of items they are in need. Please put these dates on your calendar. We will continue to keep you posted on this event.
