Meet our other Georgia NHA Chapters...

A few weeks ago, Fr. Seraphim and I visited some of the Southern States Nazareth House Chapters. The Bogart, Georgia Chapter is headed up by Claudio and Shelly Lopez. During our visit, Claudio and Shelly had Fr. Seraphim paint the NHA Logo in a prominent spot in their new home.
Shelly and Claudio are strong providers of Lucy and Ann Marie's education in Freetown. Nazareth House: Bogart, GA meets at a local restaurant for some fellowship.

Fr. Seraphim paints the Nazareth House logo on wall of Claudio & Shelly's new home.

He also blessed their new home and a few of the cars in their driveway.

Nazareth House: Bogart Georgia, a faithful supporter of Nazareth House, has been very instrumental in spreading the word about the work of NHA as well.
