Together, with their family and friends, they meet regularly at the Sainte-Famille church for a gathering of music, a meal, prayer and faith. A spokesperson noted that the group means a lot to the community it serves. Kayla Henry, one of the core members, said he is “A welcoming environment where you can make lots of friends. “They are so excited to resume meetings after a long break due to COVID-19”, Coleman said. The chapter has many volunteers, including students from the Franciscan University of Steubenville and other local parishes.
