Carole Fest: A Concert Benefit for Gianna Women's Homes

  • Newman Center 320 North 16th Street Lincoln, NE, 68508 United States (map)

On Sunday, December 10th, 2017, Catholic Social Services will present Carole Fest, A Benefit for St. Gianna Women's Homes. Area Catholic choirs will perform Advent and Christmas songs of the season in the beautiful setting of St. Thomas Aquinas Church on the campus of UNL. The afternoon will also include a raffle drawing and refreshments following the concert.

The concert is $10 per person or $25 per family and begins at 2pm. See you there! 

About St. Gianna: In the Spring of 2011, we opened on a new 24 apartment unit which is sorely needed for victims of domestic violence and those escaping abortion. This is in addition to the existing three bedroom home we already have. Collectively, this program is called St. Gianna Women’s Homes. We now have the capability to provide a safe place for over 100 women and children. Though it will serve women of all faiths in the Diocese of Lincoln, St. Gianna Women’s Homes will not make any recommendations or referrals contrary to the Catholic faith and is staffed by the Marian Sisters.
