This is the month that the Altar Society asks for cash donations to provide welcome & hygiene bags throughout the year —plus gift cards at Christmas— to the women, children, and men sheltered by Bradley Angle. This unique and ongoing project started in October 2009. To date, 670 welcome bags have been delivered thanks to parishioner contributions and the work of Altar Society volunteers.
DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AWARENESS MONTH
Domestic violence is a pattern of coercive behaviors that can include physical, psychological, sexual, economic, and emotional abuse, perpetrated by one person against an intimate partner to establish and maintain power and control. Bradley Angle has been assisting survivors, and those at risk of domestic violence, with safety, education, empowerment, healing, and hope for more than 40 years. It is easy to donate online by using the parish website’s
DONATE/GIVE NOW buttons—or send a check, making it out to: St. Philip Neri Altar Society, memo line “Bradley Angle.”
-- Thank you for caring.
