St. Saviour H.S. Shows Christian Charity

Remembering their duty to those who are struggling, the community at St. Saviour H.S., Park Slope, has worked to make the holiday season a little brighter for the women of Providence House and their children.

St. Saviour students, starting at left, Stephanie Cangelosi, sophomore; Stephanie Jones, sophomore; Kasandra Gabb, senior; and Shiril Butt, junior, show off the yarn they collected for donation.

Continuing the school’s yearly tradition, Sister Anne Lally, C.S.J., campus minister, collected Christmas gifts from the school to be delivered to the women who live in the facility with their children.

Providence House is an organization that accepts women who have been previously incarcerated and have now been released from prison. These women are housed, trained for employment, and assisted in securing a residence for themselves and their small children.

Sister Anne has also involved the school ministry with the works of Immaculate Heart of Mary parish, Kensington, where she resides.

The senior citizen group led by Sister Elizabeth Kelly, C.S.J. , at Immaculate Heart of Mary, knits blankets, hats and booties, for babies born with AIDS.

In order to support this initiative, St. Saviour High School collects yarn to donate to the senior group.

Nearly 400 blankets have been produced  since November, 2010, for this worthy cause and they are distributed to babies at the following hospitals: Lutheran Medical, Brookdale Hospital and Lincoln Hospital.
