Support Star of the North!

St. Anthony Church has been a supporter of the Star of the North Maternity Home in Duluth since its inception. Our Bible Studies and Knights of Columbus have received an award from the Together For Life organization (plaque is in the gathering space) for their contributions to this much-needed resource for homeless mothers. They are in need of a new space for the mothers in need and our parish would like to continue to support them and their needs. Please see the letter insert for more information. We will take up a second collection the weekend of March 20-21 (we will also take donations at the parish office until April 1), or you can donate to them directly and get more information at their website: togetherforlifenorthland.org .

This resource has helped many women and children in need, plus has a waiting list for their services. Please consider a donation in supporting the Star of the North Maternity Home!
