Change makes a difference
Bill De Smet of the Queen of All Saints Knights of Columbus presents a check to Marianne Pinto, the parish Gabriel Project coordinator, and Father Michael Cunningham, pastor of the Concord parish. The Knights collected the funds during their annual "Baby Bottle Campaign Change for Life" for the ministry that helps pregnant women in need. The Gabriel Project reports: "Recently, one of the moms needed a car seat, but she also expressed interest in coming back to the Church and having her three children baptized. We provided the car seat and gave her information about the local RCIA Program and will continue to support her journey back to the Faith. She said that she had considered abortion, but she cried and cried and realized she couldn't do it. Now she is overjoyed with her little baby girl."
