St. Paul’s sup­ports women’s shel­ter

The Compass - - ORTHTE -

St. Paul’s Angli­can Church has do­nated $3,000 to O’Shaugh­nessy House.

The do­na­tion rep­re­sents the pro­ceeds ($2,400) from a walk-a-thon held last Oc­to­ber, com­bined with funds from Spir­it­fest.

Krista Foote, su­per­vi­sor at the shel­ter for abused women and chil­dren in Car­bon­ear, ac­cepted the cheque from­church trea­sur­erTom Caines dur­ing a Christ­mas can­de­light ser­vice held at the Har­bour Grace church in De­cem­ber.

The con­tri­bu­tion “is part of the con­tin­ued sup­port of the shel­ter and the vi­tal min­istry of­fered to the women and chil­dren of our com­mu­ni­ties,” said a church spokesman.

Sup­port­ing the wor­thy cause was part of the mis­sion and out­reach min­istry of St. Paul’s Angli­can Church.

Rev. Shirley Nose­wor­thy ac­knowl­edged those who took part in the fundraiser for their ef­forts, con­cern and kind­ness given to this fundraiser.

“It is only through their car­ing and the car­ing of the com­mu­nity at large that we were so suc­cess­ful,” Rev. Nose­wor­thy said.

Gail Tobin, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor for Iris Kirby House/O’Shaugh­nessy House said, “reach­ing out a hand to warm a heart is the spirit that helps grow healthy com­mu­ni­ties.”

Ac­com­pa­ny­ing the cheque was a framed print to be hung in O’Shaugh­nessy house. Do­nated by lo­cal artist Pete Samp­son, the print was framed by Don Reg­u­lar. Both are mem­bers of St. Paul’s con­gre­ga­tion.
