A Special Wedding Gift
Wednesday, Jan 14, 15 by
Most brides and grooms dream of their wedding and the start of their lives together as a time to focus on themselves and the celebration of their union with the support of family and friends.
Not very often, however, do you find a young couple who are willing to give up part of the spotlight in order to help others, whom they’ve never met, as a way to celebrate the day.
Well, that’s just what Jen and Paul Straton did for their wedding. Parishioners of Holy Trinity Church, they learned of ICC through long time Board member, Msgr. Thomas Leonard. This selfless couple made a significant donation to the children at Incarnation Children’s Center in honor of their wedding guests.
We were overwhelmed when we received their generous check and note explaining how they set up artwork and pictures of the children, hoping to inspire guests to support the Center in celebration of their marriage.
We are so lucky that there are people in the world with hearts as large as those of Paul and Jen. We thank them for sharing the celebration of their special day with us.
