St. Francis of Assisi CCW
Donates to St. Mary’s Legacy
(Mobile Medical Clinic)
Several members of the Council of Catholic Women (CCW) of St. Francis of Assisi Church, Fairfield Glade, traveled to Crab Orchard on June 10, 2014 to present a check to St. Mary’s Legacy Clinic to further their work. This check was made possible from proceeds of the CCW annual rummage sale held annually in the spring. The mobile medical clinic visits Crab Orchard Care Center in Cumberland County twice a month, and several other counties once a month. The Catholic Diocese of Knoxville and the St. Mary’s Legacy Foundation of East Tennessee are committed to providing care for the medically underserved in East Tennessee.
The 40-foot mobile clinic owned and operated by the Diocese extends the healing ministry of Jesus Christ to East Tennessee. The vehicle is staffed by Sister Mariana Koonce, RSM, MD, other physicians, nurses and incredible volunteers, many from St. Francis of Assisi parish. The CCW members are pleased to provide financial support for this important medical service. And we thank everyone who supports our rummage sale each year.
