Butterfly Release Event

Thank you, Gene Davis & Sons for providing the pulled pork and macaroni and cheese dinner for all of the attendees. We must also recognize the Michigan Native Butterfly Farm for providing us with the beautiful butterflies. Deacon Todd Dalhberg led us in opening prayer to start the evening, Sue Lewis, Executive Director, provided opening remarks about the ADAM program, Lisa Holdridge, Counselor at Catholic Charities, gave a wonderful speech about the many ways we grieve. Cindy Hayden from the Ballooney Bin was also on hand to make balloon animals for everyone. Please take a look at the ADAM Facebook page periodically where updates and information regarding grief groups will be posted.  

Faith in Action Fundraiser 2023

This year, the Faith in Action Fundraiser was held at Our Lady of Fatima church in Michigan Center. We thank our generous sponsors/underwriters who were instrumental in keeping the dinner free, ensuring that 100% of the donations from the event goes directly to work in the communities we serve. THANK YOU! We also want to thank Father Satheesh and his wonderful staff who assisted behind the scenes. Without them, this evening would not have been possible. Thanks also to Dan Bishop (Board President), Mr. Chuck Gaidica (keynote speaker), Father Tim MacDonald (emcee), testimonial speaker Dennis and Sue Lewis (Executive Director). They all made the evening shine with words of inspiration, humor and mission. We also appreciate the support of our board of directors who were in attendance.

Our Faith in Action fundraiser is focused on donors joining our St. Teresa of Calcutta Giving Society. Becoming a society member makes a statement that you understand financial stability which is the bedrock for any non-profit organization. For those who signed up to become a new member – thank you!  And for those who are current members and angels, thank you, too! We could not do all we do without your support.

Were you unable to attend? You can still sign up to become a member of our St. Teresa of Calcutta Giving Society or become a Catholic Charities Angel with a recurring monthly donation in any amount. Download your pledge form HERE.
