The Columbiettes of St. Thomas the Apostle in Wilmington hosted a “Blessing Shower” for the Sisters of Christ the Light at their June meeting at St. Joseph on the Brandywine Church.

The shower gifts consisted of cash donations collected to assist the sisters with their order’s ministry in India. Locally, the sisters teach at the day care centers for the Ministry of Caring and also assist with religious education on weekends.

Their Benediction Order in Southern India ministers to children who are deaf and speech impaired, and orphans; they also run regular schools. Through the generosity of the Columbiettes, four children will have their expenses paid for a year.

The Sisters of Christ the Light help the diocese through their prayers and assistance. To support the sisters and contribute to their missions: The Sisters of Christ the Light, 401 N. Washington St. Wilmington DE 19801.

The Columbiettes are a nonprofit charitable organization that supports the community and the Knights of Columbus. They welcome practicing Catholic women with serious convictions to help others who are interested in serving and growing in the faith. More information, decolumbiettes.org/
