YOU DID IT! St. Laurence House continues operating...

YOU DID IT! Tomorrow morning James will be standing in front of the Landlord's rental agent. This time he will be paying the full 2009 year's rent.

Your compassion, your generosity made it possible, not only for the year's rent to be paid, but you opened the doors for the work to continue without interruption.

Without a center of operations, a storage unit for our supplies, a meeting place for those in need and shelter for our staff; Nazareth House would have suffered a tremendous set back. But all of you saw the value in what Nazareth House is doing and made sure it was poised to remain in operation.

St. Laurence House is so much more than a center of operations - yes - that is its purpose, its function but it is also a home, a loving place for fellowship. People come and find a smile, a friend, a plate of food.

We thank you for your support, for your prayers. Having the rent business completed for this year, we look forward to the year ahead of us. There is much to do and many depending on us. God bless you.
