•    On December 7, 1941 (Pearl Harbor Day), Our Lady of Good Counsel Home was opened at 2076 Saint Anthony Avenue in Saint Paul to care for terminal cancer patients who were unable to afford care in other nursing facilities or who could no longer continue care at home. This loving, free care has been given there for nearly 77 years!
•    The home was run by the Hawthorne Dominicans until February of 2009 when they turned over operation of the facility to the Franciscan Health Community and the name of the home was changed to Our Lady of Peace Home.
•    Children’s Hospitals contacted the home and asked if they would be willing to accept children with terminal cancer and, of course, the answer was “yes”, so that care is now lovingly being given.
•    This is the 39th Cancer Home Fundraising Dinner that the Annunciation community has so graciously supported!
•    All proceeds from this dinner will be sent to Our Lady of Peace Home. Please join us and show your support!
