Of the numerous disruptions created by the Covid-19 pandemic restrictions, one cancellation greatly lamented by the Serra Club of North Columbus is our annual luncheon recognizing the religious sisters of the Diocese. Each Fall we gather at the Martin dePorres Center at St. Mary of the Springs to celebrate with sisters from numerous congregations, with the older sisters from Mohun Health Care Center the most numerous, as they live on the campus. Since we knew we couldn’t hold the luncheon this Fall, we opted to provide some color after the bleak grey of the early lockdown. Serran Ginger West led the delivery effort, Mohun volunteers planted them, and the sisters now enjoy them!
At their August 6th luncheon meeting, the Serra Club of North Columbus heard from member Patrick Kent, who captivated them with the story of his recent pilgrimage with Warriors to Lourdes. He shared a gripping and moving video explaining the annual trip to Lourdes for combat veterans and their sponsors.
Warriors to Lourdes is a cooperative effort between the Archdiocese for Military Services and the Knights of Columbus. For full details go to www.warriorstolourdes.com
