COVID changed alot of things over the past year but it did not change celebrating our friends with special needs.  Many caregivers told us that their guest had not participated in anything social since Erie Night to Shine 2020.  All the smiles at our "Shine-Thru" celebration warmed our hearts on this chilly day and it was our honor to welcome our guests to the Our Lady of Peace campus ... the red carpet,  the photos, the gift stations, Chick-fil-A and then home to be part of a global Night to Shine virtual event.  Sharing this evening with over 600 other churches, 100,000 honored guests and 200,000 volunteers throughout all of the and around the world is amazing!!

If you'd like to be part of this movement of acceptance and love for people with special needs and have your life changed while changing the lives of others, please contact us to find ways that you can be part of our favorite night of the year!.
