The Madonna House on Rose Lane


is part of the worldwide apostolate—based in Combermere, Ontario—founded by the Servant of God Catherine Doherty, and serves our neighborhood and parish well by many outreaches. The special collection on Maundy Thursday evening is turned over to the community, consisting of Theresa Davis, Echo Lewis, and JoAnne DeGidio. One of only five “cells” of Madonna House in the United States, ours came to Raleigh, at Bishop Gossman’s invitation, over 35 years ago, and most of those years at the location within our parish. Holy Thursday is the perfect time for an appeal for this cherished foundation. The members of the Household, in their characteristically self-effacing way, minister to all with a
constancy of charity that passes the test of time. Let us show our gratitude toward Madonna House when the baskets are passed on Maundy Thursday.
