Sr Pat & Mary Lou bring gifts to door for pick-up

December 9, 2020       The Christmas gifts—carefully selected, wrapped, and organized for each family by SBEC staff—were ready for pick-up.  All day, 9:00-3:00, cars turned into the driveway at Saint Benedict Education Center, stopped at the side door, and were greeted by welcoming staff bearing gifts.  Although the weather was overcast, the day was brightened by smiling faces and happy greetings.  

Once again the creativity of SBEC staff was on full view--as was the commitment to respond to the needs of the families, even with limitations imposed by a pandemic.
