Franciscan Brothers of Peace Holiday Outreach
The students of Chesterton Academy provided 60 bags of groceries to the Franciscan Brothers of Peace holiday grocery drive in November 2009. This service project helped the Brothers enable 575 families to enjoy both Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. Students and their families brought the bags directly to the Brother's residence in St Paul, MN, were given a tour and visited with the Brothers. They also prayed the rosary, with Brother Paul, in the home's lovely chapel. The Franciscan Brothers of Peace are a Pro-Life Religious Brotherhood dedicated to giving their lives for love of our Lord Jesus Christ and His Holy Catholic Church. Committed to live and proclaim The Gospel of Life, devoting ourselves to serve and defend the most vulnerable of our society: the pre-born child, the severely disabled, survivors of torture, the poor and the homeless.
