“Let God Set Free”: We’re So Grateful for Your Support!

Jul 14th, 2017

I would like to express thanks to you for all the support notes and prayer that our participants experienced from you, our Annunciation parishioners, during the June 2-3 retreat for the 11 staff members of Breaking Free (St. Paul) and Terebinth Refuge (St. Cloud). Both of these organizations are dedicated to assisting women in rebuilding lives after escaping sex trafficking. These women’s hearts were deeply touched by all your prayer for them and the letters of support they received from many of you. One of the retreatants has all her notes posted in her office space so that she can constantly be reminded of your support. Terry Forliti, Executive Director of Breaking Free, in her amazement for your thoughtfulness said, “We don’t get thank-yous for what we do – ever!”

This retreat was made possible through some very generous donations from the Minnesota Vikings, Mary’s Pence and other anonymous donors.
