Recent News from St. Andrew's, Delavan, WI

Giovanna Moses, a member of St. Andrew Parish in Delavan, celebrated her 30th birthday with a trip to the Great Wall of China, and she planned to top that by visiting another of the world’s wonders for her 40th. Instead, she gave back to her community, which rallied behind her and her husband Cevin when their youngest child, then-2-year-old Katherine Mary Grace, who has Down syndrome, was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in summer 2013. Katherine Mary Grace began two years of treatment, and received life-saving blood and platelets and would need more, so Giovanna celebrated her special day by thanking the community with a “40 Bags for 40 Years” blood drive benefitting the BloodCenter of Wisconsin. Giovanna and Cevin look at their family’s situation positively rather than ask why it was happening. “She’s a tool that God is using to bring joy to others but also to bring people to him, “she said,” and if I can be a part of that, I feel a calling to do so.” (May 29)
