The One | Charity
Friday, March 18 — 46th Annual Lenten Supper For Orphans & Chronically Ill Children of Lebanon & Syria, 7-9 p.m., Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church, 256 Hamilton St. First of all, what a name for a church (maybe I need to get out more, but still)! This Melkite Greek Catholic parish has been on Grafton Hill since 1923 and it was those neighborhood folks who under the leadership of Father Charles Aboody, according to the church, laid the foundation for this traditional charity endeavor nearly five decades ago.
All dinner items, time and labor are donated, so 100 percent of the proceeds from the evening will go toward Lebanon’s Chronic Care Center, which focuses on specialized treatment and followup of children with chronic conditions such as Thalassemia, a hereditary blood disorder, and diabetes.
