Ladies of Charity
The Ladies of Charity continue the work of "outreach" to the poor and needy - both spiritually and materially - in the spirit of St. Vincent de Paul.
Each member is invested by the bishop at St. Paul Cathedral.
These are some of the projects undertaken by the Ladies of Charity:
Visiting the Homebound
Preparation of bags of gifts for the newly baptized
Peanut butter and Jelly Sandwiches for the Boys and Girls Club
Military boxes and cards
All Souls Day Mass
Christmas Gifts and Cards to Shut-ins
Boys & Girls Club Christmas Party - the party was held December 21st. James Barry, Exec.Director of LaRosa Boys & Girls Club in McKeesport wrote a thank you letter which reads in part...."I wanted to extend our most sincere appreciation for all you do for our kids. The exquisitely wrapped Christmas gifts all specially put together with such love and attention to detail are so warmly received by their special recipients.... One of the young girls proudly stood up showing the gift she received and exclaimed, "Somebody loves me!"
