The Greatest Gift of All is Family, but in the United States, 1 in 6 families live in poverty and 1 in 30 children go to bed each night without a place to call home. St. Benedict Catholic Church is proud to be a support congregation for vulnerable families in the program. We will be supporting St. Mary’s Cathedral during their hosting weeks of June 14, 2020, and August 16, 2020.
Please give families in need the gift of hope and home.
