Father Nick McLoughlin, Pastor of Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church, presented Abigail Doucet, Community Engagement Specialist, Samaritan’s Touch Care Center, a check for $5,000 at the Samaritan’s Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser held Saturday, August 11, 2018 at the Grogan Center at Our Lady of Grace. Upon introducing Abigail, Father Nick recognized the extreme need for donations to the Center in that the Center depends entirely on this type of funding being that it is a not for profit medical center. Donations are needed to purchase medications, medical supplies, and offset operating expenses necessary to keep the doors open and lights on.
