General Announcements

Great Lakes Gabriel Project to host fundraising dinners

The Great Lakes Gabriel Project, a pro-life ministry based in the archdiocese, will host two “Celebrate Life” fundraising dinners in February.

The first dinner is scheduled on Feb. 9 at the Southside Knights of Columbus Hall, 511 E. Thompson Road, in Indianapolis.

The second fundraiser is on Feb. 14 at the Northside Knights of Columbus Hall, 2100 E. 71st St., in Indianapolis.

Father James Farrell, pastor of St. Pius X Parish and director of Our Lady of Fatima Retreat House, both in Indianapolis, will be the keynote speaker at both dinners.

The events will also feature a speech by an expectant mother experiencing a crisis pregnancy who was considering abortion but called the Gabriel Project help line by mistake. The care and ministry offered to her by Gabriel Project volunteers led her to choose life for her baby.

The dinners, which are free of charge, will begin with seating at 6 p.m. The evening’s program will begin at 7 p.m. and conclude at 9 p.m. Donations are appreciated to help fund the ministry’s operating expenses.

To make a reservation for the dinners, send your name and phone number by e-mail to projectgabriel40@comcast.net.

For more information, call Donna VanDoren at 317-308-0127 or send an e-mail to 2012gpdinner@gmail.com.
