ProLifeCorner- Freeport, Il – by Annarae – On Tuesday, February 17, over two hundred people braved the icy cold winds to enjoy good food, fellowship, and to help a worthy cause, the renovation of the former St. Francis Hospital. This event was held in the lovely facilities of the First Lutheran Church in Freeport. We are grateful to Pastor Keith Johnson and to the First Lutheran Church community for allowing us to use their facilities, not only for this event but for graciously allowing the Sisters and the various committees to hold their monthly meetings there.
The Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (IHM), our “Blue Nuns” held a spaghetti dinner to raise funds for their project, the Madonna Renewal Center, which will be a place of healing and hope to women. To say this event was a success would be an understatement! A steady stream of hungry folks kept all the volunteer kitchen crew busy the entire time. Everyone raved about how wonderful everything tasted and many asked when the next dinner would be held. Spaghetti, meat balls or sauce, salad with a tasty Italian style dressing, garlic bread and a beverage made a filling and oh, so enjoyable meal, or perhaps I should say feast. This was all topped off with an array of desserts that filled over two long tables from which one could pick a generous portion of cakes, cookies, or pies. Trust me, no one went away hungry!

God has given us a vision for 2015 that includes the hiring of a Client Services Director/Sexual Risk Avoidance Specialist. He not only brought forth a very well-equipped young woman for this position who was hired 01/20/15 but He has also brought forth new volunteers to cover the main office of the Pregnancy Center to enable her and me to get out into the community to promote our new Sexual Risk Avoidance Program. We are praying for God’s blessings on our fundraisers to raise the funds needed to not only cover this position but the training, workbooks, laptop, DVD player and other supplies needed to implement this program.
