The State LifeSaver Project takes place in April with collections from the Council Bluffs area parishes. 60% of the collected donations stay local to support the good works of the Phoenix House Domestic Violence Shelter. 40% goes to the Diocese for other domestic violence shelters and prevention programs.
One Million Rosaries for Unborn Babies
Our court participates in this event in May, a 3-day spiritual battle for an end to the surgical and non-surgical killing of unborn human persons. We do for the unborn babies that which they cannot do for themselves—pray.
Birthright Baby Shower
Birthright is a local organization that helps pregnant women choose life. Items needed are infant clothes up to 24 months, diapers and wipes, crib sheets and blankets, and maternity clothes. We do a collection of items as a “shower” at one of our meetings.
Court Supports Parish RCIA Programs
In the fall of 2010 our court chose to annually support our local parish RCIA programs by purchasing Bibles for each adult studying to become Catholic. A special note is attached in each Bible wishing God’s blessing from Catholic Daughters Court St. Anthony #330.
Court Supports Parish First Communion Programs
As one of our court’s youth programs, we designate funds in our budget to donate to the five local parishes for their First Communion programs. It is our hope that contributing to First Communion programs will show these students how important we believe this time is for them and how we join in their celebration! God bless them all!
Stations of the Cross Project
Our court supported the Stations of the Cross project at Saint Albert school through the efforts of Boy Scout Matthew Veit. We donated $500 for station #14 in honor of our blessed Mother.
