Students from Saint Lucy Day School for Children with Visual Impairments and Archbishop Ryan School for the Deaf are pictured at the Tuesday, June 24th Phillies game singing and signing the national anthem before the game.
The performance was part of “Catholic Charities Night at Citizens Bank Park.” A portion of proceeds from 500 specially designated tickets supports the Catholic Charities Appeal. The four Archdiocesan Schools of Special Education including Saint Lucy and Archbishop Ryan benefit from the annual appeal.
In addition to the performance by Saint Lucy and Archbishop Ryan students, Archbishop Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap. threw out the ceremonial first pitch at Citizens Bank Park.
Every year, the Philadelphia Catholic Charities Appeal feeds, clothes, shelters, and educates more than 200,000 people across our region, regardless of their faith. Care is provided for the homeless, the elderly, disadvantaged youth and the developmentally delayed through more than 80 highly effective social service programs that build up the dignity of those served.
