The Talitha Koum Society celebrated its 13th birthday with a well-attended anniversary dinner fundraiser at St. Mary's in Vancouver May 11. Bishop Gary Gordon of Whitehorse gave a blessing and invited those present to live deep gospel values.

The transition house helps women who suffer from addiction and who may have been in trouble with the law. Two women shared their stories and experience of Talitha Koum at the event.
