All Saints Central students unveil 'Finding Home'; will be featured by local media

Bay City—
All Saints Central high school students look at copies of “Finding Home,” the newly produced CD they created, with members of the school's music ministry team, to benefit the Good Samaritan Rescue Mission. The box containing the CDs arrived at the school on Wednesday.

All of the music on the CD, including background arrangements, was composed by students. In addition, students penned original poetry and read testimonials written by guests of Good Samaritan Rescue Mission.

Sales will continue throughout the year, but students are hoping to sell as many copies as possible before facing-off against Nouvel Catholic Central in the third annual “Hoops for the Homeless” basketball game at 7 p.m. on April 15 at Delta Community College.

The two Catholic high schools are competing to see who can raise more money for the homeless. The event raised more than $18,000 in its first two years, and all funds go to support the work of the Good Samaritan Rescue Mission in Bay City and the City Rescue Mission of Saginaw.

“Finding Home” is on sale for $10 at Regina Caeli religious store in downtown Bay City. It also is available at All Saints; and plans are underway to sell it at schools and parishes in the community.

The proceeds will benefit the Good Samaritan Rescue Mission at a time of year when donations are typically down, but needs usually go up.

The students were interviewed for a story to appear in The Bay City Times and will be featured on ABC12’s, “Good Kids” segment this Friday between 5:50-6:00p.m.
