Giving to Magdalene

I know that most of you who give through United Way have probably already made your pledge to the agency of your choice, but as we approach the pledge deadline (at least here at the state), you should consider the Magdalene agency for next year’s pledge (or for a worthwhile donation outside of United Way).

Becca Stevens, founder of Magdalen and priest of St. Augustine’s chapel at Vandy, and the staff of Magdalen work with prostitutes to provide care and shelter to achieve:

Magdalene has an amazing 87% success rate with the women who enter the program.

Becca is a hero, and her work cuts close to the marrow of pure Christianity.
