Two local maternity homes, Guiding Star Ministries and Our Lady’s House, gathered for a special evening on May 2nd to celebrate a combined 58 years of service to women and children in the Greater Philadelphia region. Both homes have ministered to the needs of over 400 women and 425 children.
This special dinner at North Hills Country Club (Glenside, PA) provided the opportunity for guests to listen to and rejoice in the powerful testimonials of former residents who have benefited from the love and care at Guiding Star Ministries and Our Lady’s House. Their personal and professional success stories were an inspiration for all attendees. A woman shared her story about the incredible support she received from Patrick and Wendy Stanton while living at Our Lady’s House that she later able to enroll into school for a nursing degree. When she got a phone call from Patrick about the May 2nd dinner event, she immediately booked a plane ticket to travel from her current residence in Florida so she could attend this special evening—and to surprise everyone with the fact that she completed her studies and received her nursing degree!
