Nancy Gerth, SCN, along with a group from Charity Alive prepared door decorations and spread holiday cheer to the residents at Vincentian Personal Care Home. They had a time of reflection on Thanksgiving for those whom are lights in their lives. They also attended the lighting of the Christmas tree event in downtown Pittsburgh with an awesome fireworks finale!
This trip helped the group reach many of their goals, to give service, deepen spirituality, and build relationships, mission accomplished!
Charity Alive is similar to the SCN Associate program, in which members believe in the values and missions of the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth. Charity Alive is geared towards the younger generation, who are in college, entering the workforce, or starting their families. The board members have varying interests and ages, striving to better themselves and the group each day.
