Our New house and a visit from Bishop Loverde

Posted by on Apr 3, 2014 in In the News |

Have you heard the news? Mary’s Shelter has a NEW house in downtown Fredericksburg! Now, all of our houses are within easy walking distance from each other. Bishop Loverde made a special stop last Saturday in order to bless our newest home! Thank you to Bishop Loverde and everyone who came out to support us on Saturday and to welcome Bishop Loverde!  Of course, none of this would be possible without YOU, our generous donors!  Be sure to click through the link to the article from the Arlington herald below!!

2014 A-Cross America Relay

2014 A-Cross America Relay

Posted by on Mar 4, 2014 in Announcements, Events |

We have an exciting fundraiser to tell you about. On March 14th, a team of friends of Mary’s Shelter will be participating in the “A Cross America Relay” to raise awareness and donations for pro life ministries.  This team has been organized by Chad Finch, to “adopt” portions of this race to benefit Mary’s Shelter.  Our very own Board of Director’s member, Mark Ivory will also be joining this event along with runner Howard Thomas.  They will be running on the C&O Canal Path in Hancock, Maryland and will, as a team, complete multiple, consecutive legs of the race, totaling just about the length of a marathon.  Talk about walking the walk, or in this case, running the run!

You can donate to this event by going to our Donations page.
