Recently, our own Sister Anne Halpin received the Giving the Light of Hope Award from Home Again St. Johns for her “unwavering support, kindness, and love to our homeless community in St. Johns County.” Sister Anne ministers to the homeless via Saint Anastasia Catholic Church in St. Augustine, FL. Through the St. Martin de Porres room, she gets the word out to the parishioners for the immediate needs, sorts the donations, and makes sure they are distributed throughout the community via a network of helpers and supporters of her mission. Congratulations, Sister Anne!
