Last week was a busy week for the CSS Refugee Resettlement Program. Friday the program teamed up with 2B Choices for Women to throw a baby shower for clients that are expecting or have recently delivered a new baby. Clients were presented with gifts, treats, and a towering diaper cake.
Saturday was the program’s first community cookout and soccer game at St. Pius X Catholic Church. The Knights of Columbus fried some delicious fish as the families gathered for a friendly soccer game. The Frassati Society of Mobile was on the scene with soccer balls for the kids and other raffle prizes. AFC Mobile also made an appearance to teach the families some new soccer moves.
Hebrews 10:24 tells us “consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together…but encouraging one another…” It is remarkable to see these good works in action–to observe the support and encouragement for a community through something as simple as sharing a meal, celebrating a birth, or kicking a ball.
