Marie's Story

Marie Robertson wanted nothing more than to have a daughter. After years of trying, she put her future in God’s hands. She vowed that if he would bless her with a daughter, she would make it her life’s mission to help the less fortunate. Soon, a baby girl was placed with Marie and her husband, and Marie’s Ministry became a reality. Staying true to her promise, Marie spent the rest of her life dedicated to helping those in need. Marie passed away on Christmas Day 2011, and with the blessing of her family, St. Elizabeth Catholic Charities continues the work of Marie’s Ministry. 

Sara and Joe’s Story:

Sarah and Joe have been married five years and they just had their second baby. Two months before Sarah delivered, Joe lost his job and has been out of work ever since. They visited Marie’s Ministry and left with smiles on their faces, a plastic bag full of diapers and formula for their new baby and a warm coat and booster seat for their toddler. Most importantly, they left with hope.
