Chambersburg Knights Present Donations for Lourdeshouse

Chambersburg Knights Present Donations for Lourdeshouse

Representatives of Knights of Columbus Council 1426 from Corpus Christi Parish in Chambersburg traveled to the Diocesan Center in Harrisburg April 17 to generously donate a $6,000 check, along with more than a thousand pairs of baby socks and bibs, for Catholic Charities’ Lourdeshouse, which provides support and a safe home for pregnant homeless women and their infants after birth. Accepting the check and items is Christopher Meehan, Catholic Charities’ Director of Development. Representing Council 1426 are Jacob Vanier, financial secretary, Oscar Galvan, chancellor, and trustee John Putko. The socks and bibs were generously crafted by women at Our Lady of Refuge Church in Doylesburg – a mission church of Corpus Christi located in the far western portion of Franklin County in the Path Valley.
