I wrote here a little while ago about my husband and me starting a Catholic organization at our medical school. That was back in September and I wanted to report that we are going strong. Every Friday during Lent and every month before, we had a lunch time Rosary. We held a bake sale, and raised some money for our organization. Since it was our first year we were very poor and had no money in the treasury. But I have to say that the biggest suprise were the people that have donated money to our organization. One of our officer’s parents donated $350. Another lady that came to the Rosary would always surrepticiously leave us $20 under the crock pot (although we saw her, we never said anything because we knew that she wanted us not to see). My mom cooked a meatless soup for us during Lenten Rosaries and comes to all our meetings. My aunt heard about our efforts and donated another $50. The response has been so wonderful that I have tears in my eyes. I was really afraid that everyone would think that we weren’t needed because we already had a Chritian Medical Association at my school.
Yesteday, we invited a NFP instructor to come talk at lunch. I could not sleep the night before for fear that no one would show up or that they would be rude. None of that happened. We bought food for 70 people and all of it was gone. Yes gone!!! And people stayed around to ask questions and were very curious about the Creighton method. It was definately a success. I have pictures but I don’t know if I should post them since other people are in them and I don’t have their permission. However, in just a couple of months we will have a great website and then I will be able to direct you there.
God bless everyone.
