The SanCap Catholics, a new independent group of area Catholics, held their first official function Jan. 16, filling the Sand Dollar restaurant. The “Right-To-Life Baby Shower and Breakfast” was attended by 80 members who heard Fr. Joseph Cavoto OFM of New York City’s Church of St. Francis speak about protecting people in all stages of life, as well as the current state of the post-Vatican II Catholic Church.
The group, which stresses the need for involvement by both Catholic women and men, began their first fundraising season with women supporting the Guadalupe Social Services by collecting baby items such as diapers, clothing, and wipes, along with shirts for migrants, and toiletries for their homeless shower program. The men attending collected more than $700 to provide shavers, socks and men’s underwear for the Guadalupe Homeless Program.
The breakfast was the first of many events scheduled to help the area’s charitable programs including a Lobster Dinner in February and Italian Festa scheduled in March. All are welcome.
