Recently, the Phoenix Location had their Inaugural Mass & fellowship with homeless veterans supported by Catholic Charities at the Mana House. Fr. Thomas Enneking, O.S.C. celebrated the Mass and thanked the veterans for their sacrifices. There was time to meet one another and break bread in the form of donuts. Phoenix Members also distributed Order of Malta Wellness Kits from the Order of Malta Mobile Ministries van!
Mr. Paul Mulligan, President and CEO of Catholic Charities, welcomed us and said, "Thank you so much for coming down to Mana House today and helping us bring Mass to our veterans. That was such a special morning and we appreciate it!"
