With all the publicity about abortion in the news, the Orange Diocese Council of Catholic Women are doing something positive to promote life.  The Orange DCCW hosted a “Baby Shower” to support the Precious Life Shelter of Los Alamitos whose mission is to provide an emergency, transitional home that provides a safe environment for homeless, pregnant women. 

Members were generous with gifts and monetary donations. The event was held on April 23 at the group’s monthly General Gathering. The day started with Mass at St. Norbert’s Church in Orange, and followed by a traditional “baby shower” that included mimosas, lunch, and games. Penelope Heckler, council president, introduced the founder of the Precious Life Shelter, Theresa Sherrin, and a pregnant woman from the shelter who gratefully received the gifts.
