What a blessing it was to meet Darlene Daigle of the Ladies of Charity of New Orleans and share with her our gift from Ladies of Charity of Knoxville to help flood victims.
Our hearts have been touched by those who are struggling following the devastating flooding. We wanted to let the people know that they were in our thoughts and prayers as they go about the task of rebuilding their lives.
Because of many gifts given to us, we wanted to give back to those in need. It was an honor and a blessing to present our gift of $5000.00 to Darlene at the Archdiocese of New Orleans Retreat Center during a recent pilgrimage to the Shrines of New Orleans. Darlene was able to have dinner with our Knoxville pilgrimage group and share her gratitude on behalf of the flood victims.
In the words of St. Vincent de Paul “Lord, help me to make time today to serve you in those who are most in need of encouragement or assistance.”
Ladies of Charity of Knoxville are so very grateful to be on this journey of life to serve those in need with all of the Ladies of Charity worldwide.
