Coats for Kids

Chairman - Gordon Shellhaas <gordon.shellhaas@msn.com>


On Tuesday, December 5th,  8 Brother Knights and 7 wives of Council 13341 distributed 408 new  lightweight coats to the children of St. Michael’s parish in Wauchula.  The event was coordinated by Mother Nikopoia.  She was assisted by Sister Regina and several parish teachers.

Mother Nikopoia and assistants selected and sized each coat for the children. 

Before hand, Mother Nikopoia guided our group and the children in prayer. The children sang two songs for our benefit before the distribution of coats.

All who attended were truly filled with the Christmas spirit.

Wauchula is a small agricultural community and the Hardee County Seat. The majority of the members of the St. Michael Catholic Church are agricultural workers. St. Michael’s Church in Wauchula is one of the poorest parishes in the Diocese of Venice with Sister Maria Gema leading family activities there.  Each child’s coat was hand-picked by her for fit and style with their names attached.  The response was wonderful with 100 people from the parish in attendance.

Anyone interested in helping the religious sisters at St. Michael Parish can do so by contacting Sister Gema at: St. Michael Parish, Attn: Sister Gema, 408 Head Bridge Road, Wauchula, FL 33873.
