Mother’s Day May 9, 2021 our court held a brunch to benefit the Guadalupe Home. The Guadalupe Home. The Guadalupe Home is part of the Catholic Social Services in San Antonio. Guadalupe Home is a transitional shelter for pregnant and parenting mothers and their babies who find themselves homeless and are interested in making a change for a hopeful future through full-time education enrollment or employment. Case management, parenting education, life skills training, and counseling are provided.
Here are some pictures of our visit to the Guadalupe Home on May 27, 2021. The staff was appreciative of CDA’s donation of $1300. We took a guided tour of the facility and dedicated most of our time to learning about the services provided to the residents. Goals setting and incentives are a big part of the catalyst toward successful exit from Guadalupe Home.
Court St. Helena of the Cross #2679 received the above award at the Texas State Convention held April, 2021. This was annual Circle of Love in Legislation for member group Category II (26-50 members). We support the abolition of abortion in our legislative system. We enlist prayer with the America Needs Fatima Rosary Rallies for the unborn and participated in the “9 Days for Life Novena” from January 21-29, 2021. These are a few examples of our efforts to discourage abortion. Great job ladies!
