Court St. Dominic of the Rosary #2682, San Antonio, Texas, hosted a baby shower to help the Allied Women's Center (which states on
its website, "Since 1994, Allied Women's Center has operated Catholic crisis pregnancy centers in San Antonio which assist over 2,000
women annually and save the lives of hundreds of babies each year from abortion.") The court and St. Dominic Catholic Church community
came together for a fun-filled afternoon from which more than $2900 worth of baby gifts and $668 in cash was donated to the center in
support of its mission, "Saving Babies, Helping Families."
VETERANS HELPED BY LOUISIANA COURT
Members of Court St. Theresa of Avila #1955, Gonzales, Louisiana,

socks and 36 books for the Southeast Louisiana War Veterans
Home. Court members delivered the assembled items to the home
and were welcomed with open arms by the veterans. "It is surely
a humbling and honorable experience," the court said, "to be
able to thank those who served our country and protected our
freedom." In the photo court members arrive outside the veteran's
