Adoption awareness seminar Sunday


TELL CITY – Catholic Charities will host its sixth annual adoption awareness gathering at 4:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 11, at the St. Boniface Parish Center in Fulda. The event offers support toward the option of adoption.

Organizers hope to spread the word that the option of adoption should be a first choice to an unplanned pregnancy, not the last. They hope to change any negative stigma surrounding adoption to one of support for the loving choice.

The event is set to educate those in attendance so they can better help those considering adoption and provide information to best guide the decision that will ultimately affect the child.

All are encouraged to attend, including youths preparing for Confirmation into their faith.

Pizza will be served after the program.

For more information, contact JoAnn Smith at Catholic Charities at (812) 547-0903.
