A Change of Heart

Img 9836 Most individuals stranded in Milwaukee who come to St Ben’s asking for assistance arrive at our doors penniless. So I was surprised a few days ago when Jake informed me that in his case lack of cash was not the problem. His family had Money-grammed him $100, but he knew not the location of either a Walmart where he could retrieve it, nor the transit center from where he could catch a bus back home to Marinette. He had spent the previous night outside at a bus shelter, and he wept now as he told me how scared and alienated he was feeling in this big city.

Faith, Hope and Charity

I may have mentioned this before but one of the great pleasures of raising funds for Capuchin Community Services is meeting the donors. I am always in awe of the wonderful and hopeful attitudes our supporters put into action. Recently I toured St. Anthony’s Hospital with the Falsetti Family. Dr. Tom Falsetti was my dentist before he retired. One day he shared with me that his father, Dr. Frank Falsetti was a pathologist at the old St. Anthony’s Hospital.

Season of Giving
