Coming to My City

OK, my ZIP code, but let's not get picky.

The convent at one of the churches in my newly-merged parish has been vacant for a year and a half. On Monday night, the town council where the convent is located approved a variance so that the former convent can now become a Good Counsel Home.

There had been a good deal of opposition in town when this idea was first introduced. Fortunately, the town council was convinced that a home that would aid about ten young women in crisis pregnancies would not pose a danger to the town.

What a wonderful opportunity for the people in our parish to really stand up for life.

I think your zip code is blessed to have Good Counsel Home there. I admire and respect the work Christopher Bell and Fr. Groeschel have done for these young women and their babies.

So good to hear. May the ministry be blessed in every way, and serve to soften all hearts in favor of life.
