Updated Media information about the Building Campaign Progress: A nice article on our building project and a wonderful grant we've been given by The Meyer Memorial Trust for $150,000.00. We are so very very grateful to the Trust for their trust in us and our desires to provide medical, nursing, dental and other kinds of assistance to the poor who come to our door. This article describes some of what we'd like to do. We are grateful to The Catholic Sentinel for covering this grant!
