Sarah and Joe had been married five years when they 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 Blessings 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.
Marie’s Blessings is open every Tuesday and Thursday from 10am-2pm with open hours subject to change based on holidays.

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 under the new name Marie’s Blessings.
