The theme for this year's banquet was" ComPASSion in Action".

They continue to develop ministries that support spiritually healthy families. Ministries fall into 4 domains: PREVENTION, INTERVENTION, EDUCATION, RESTORATION. Please consider financially supporting PASS or volunteering at one of their centers. Margie Doorn, Advancement Director, will speak at St Lukes in January.
