Ministry of Caring is continuing its work
VINCE REMBULAT / The Bulletin John, who is a Valley CAPS consumer, is joined by Ministry of Caring members, from left, Jeanne Rowen, Diane Lehman, Judy Abrew and Mel Abrew.

Jeff Vieira assured consumers at Valley CAPS on Friday that the luncheon hosted by the Ministry of Caring will live on.

“This is the legacy of Sister Ann,” he said in the auxiliary room of the St. Anthony’s gym.

Vieira, who is the deacon at the church, recently took over from Sr. Ann Venita Britto.

He added: “If it wasn’t for these volunteers, this (luncheon) would have been hard for me to do.”

Included were Ministry of Caring members Mel and Judy Abrew, Jeanne Rowen, and Diane Lehman.

Together, along with students from nearby St. Anthony’s School, they served up hot dog luncheon to the Valley CAPS consumers, who also won door prizes made possible by benefactors and donors.

Vieira and others also initiated games such as hot potato — the winner was awarded a prize.
