You’ve been hearing about Magdalene St. Louis for a couple years now … and 2014 is the year we open our doors. The board hopes to be buying the house in the next couple weeks. We are already working to identify the five women who will be our first residents — women who probably believe there is no hope for them to get out of the cycle of trafficking and abuse who by the end of this year will be a part of this community of love and healing.
On Thursday, February 20,please be our guest at “Making a House a Home” – our major 2014 fundraising event for Magdalene St. Louis. It will be an evening of inspirational stories, wonderful company and a chance to help support this transformational ministry. We’re thrilled that one of St. Louis’ best blues bands, The Jeremiah Johnson Band, is donating its talents, and also that Amos Harris has opened up a wonderful space overlooking Washington Avenue in the Mercantile Exchange building for our use. Drinks and hors d’oeuvres begin at 5:30and you’ll be out the door by 7:30 with most of your evening still in front of you.
There is NO CHARGE to get in. We want as many people as possible to hear the good news about Magdalene St. Louis and we know people will be moved to give when they do.
Three things you can do to help make this all a huge success:
1.) RSVP *Click here to RSVP on our Eventbrite site
2.) Invite everyone you know. (We’re hoping to have 500 people in attendance). Email your friends. Publicize it in your congregation. Spread the word. All people have to do to RSVP is go to the Eventbrite site.
