We are thrilled to share with you photos from this past Saturday’s blessing of our new homes and office space. We were delighted to welcome Bishop Burbidge, kindly supported by Father’s Wagner, Mosimann, Cummings, Rooney, and Lundberg. Sister Susan Louise, Sister Frances Carol and Sister Miriam Elizabeth, our Oblate Sisters, were also on hand to celebrate this beautiful occasion, as were so many members of our community who have supported this ministry with gifts of time, service and financial contributions. Mark Doherty, Jeremy McCommons, and Marie Jessup of MacDoc Property Management and their families were also there to help us celebrate. It is through their generosity that we are in these beautiful new spaces. We also are grateful to David Bereit for setting up his sound system for our big day and to the 8th Graders at Holy Cross Academy for raising funds for outdoor toys, gardening supplies and a beautiful statue of the Blessed Mother. And finally, we’d like to thank the students at The Summit Academy for volunteering endless hours helping us get the homes ready for new residents and for helping with the blessing. What an awesome group of kids!
We now have a real office space and gorgeous apartments and homes to welcome those women who have chosen life for their unborn child. At Mary’s Shelter there is a sanctuary to guide, support and to encourage them to a brighter future. As we receive more photos, we will post them on our website www.marysshelterva.org
Thanks for your continued support of this beautiful pro-life ministry.
May God continue to bless you!
