More than 50 families baked cupcakes for the event, the hall was decorated for a shower, and gifts for the “spiritually” adopted infants filled three playpens. One parishioner donated more than 40 hand-crocheted sweater sets. Holy Trinity parishioners will continue their prayer campaign and their support for the Pregnancy Problem Center.
