The women of Holy Family Parish are hosting an evening of sharing on Feb. 5 at 7 p.m. at Monsignor Sullivan Hall as well as an effort to collect baby goods for its sister parish in the Dominican Republic. In addition to sharing personal stories about baptism, the organizers are accepting "baby shower" gifts that will go to new mothers in the Parish mission in the village of Cevicos in the Dominican Republic. Attendees are encouraged to bring in vintage christening or infant clothing and other memorabilia to be displayed for the event. Pictured here is a vintage carriage belonging to Jane Marshall and a doll and dress belonging to Faye MacDonald that will be on display.
