Reece's Rainbow -- an Update

In the Oct. 19 B.C. Catholic we ran an article by freelancer Paul Sanchez about Reece's Rainbow, an organization that rescues babies with Down syndrome threatened with abortion and finds loving homes for them. We told how a Vancouver Island family is the first recipient of such a child, so we're happy to provide this update. The Keno family is now spending their first Christmas with Aiden, recently arrived from Bulgaria. Shown are pictures of Aiden and his family.
Also, Paul Sanchez has written another article that might be of interest. It tells the story of an organization called Heart's Home, made up of French mission
aries, including from Canada, who work with the poor and suffering in Brooklyn, NY. What's even more special is that the missionaries comprise the full spectrum of Church vocations: an order for priests, one for nuns, and a fraternity of consecrated laypeople and lay volunteers. Take a look at the story here.
