HYANNIS, MA – A breakfast reception was held at the Parish Hall of Our Lady of Victory Church for members of the Parish, committee members of the Taste and Sea event as well as three local non profits.

Father Mark Hession met with staff from the Housing Assistance Corporation, Community Action Committee of the Cape and Islands and the Duffy Health Center on December 8th to give them all an early Christmas present. According to Father Hession, the parish’s “Taste and See” event was a huge success again, providing attendees with great food while educating them about local charities. “We wanted to broaden our reach this year, and involve more organizations dedicated to this good work” said Father Hession. “All the agencies represented here today make our community a better place to live.”

“Taste and See” is an annual dinner held at Our Lady of Victory. Silent and Live auction items are included in the evening entertainment.

Community Action Committee of the Cape and Islands and the Duffy Health Center will use their share of the proceeds to help support their collaborative project, Pilot House, a modified therapeutic shelter that houses 20 previously chronically homeless individuals and offers case management, medical and behavioral health services.
