Over a delicious dinner and charming table settings, Archbishop Samuel Aquila spent time with families during a Mother’s Day dinner May 8 at the Archdiocese of Denver.
Single mothers and their children assisted through Catholic Charities’ Father Ed Judy House—a long term shelter to help women from homelessness to stability—were the honored guests at the dinner.
The archbishop talked with the mothers about their families and visited with the children. Cardinal James Stafford, former archbishop of Denver, made a surprise visit and spent time with the guests.
The dinner is an annual tradition to support the mothers and help them see their God-given dignity and worth.
The Mother’s Day dinner was also attended by Amy Burt, program supervisor of Father Ed Judy House, and Father Randy Dollins, vicar general and moderator of the curia for the Archdiocese of Denver.
