St. Patrick Knights of Columbus Council 10567 provided dinner service at First Light Women's Shelter on Sunday, July 10, 2022.

The shelter, located in downtown Birmingham, has been operating since 1983 and its mission is to work with homeless women and their children to create hospitality in a safe and nurturing community, to encourage them to maintain dignity, to find hope, to seek opportunity, and to grow spiritually, thereby achieving their full potential.

After joining with the women for prayer, the Knights served fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, green beans, bread and cookies to the women and children.
