Remembering your loved ones in our special Mass and daily prayers is a witness to the trust we have in our loving Father and His promise to be reunited in eternity.

Although a contribution is not necessary, any gift, no matter how large of small, is a loving tribute to the memory of your deceased loved ones. Your gift continues to help Good Counsel homes in caring for the homeless pregnant mothers and babies entrusted by God to our care. Read More
