Healing One, Healing the World
Annual Spring Benefit
Sunday, May 1, 2022 at 5:00 PM


Join us as we virtually celebrate our 2022 honorees for the Marion Faldet Volunteer and Community of Caring awards - Dr. George Fitchett, Kay Lewis, and Gift of Hope. Gather together with a group of your family and friends on Zoom to support the ministries of Bishop Anderson House and get an update on how we continue to provide spiritual care to an expanding community in need. We are working on some fun interactive games and preparing a packet of sweet, savory and refreshing beverage recipes to share at our virtual tables! And don't forget the excitement created during our annual paddle raise which allows the work of our chaplains to continue. Your generosity also allows our educational opportunities to equip people with the skills to be ministers of presence to those in need. We look forward to "seeing" you all soon!
