Our Lady’s Inn Luncheon for Life


Our Lady’s Inn was delighted to welcome over 200 guests to our Luncheon for Life event on September 26, 2019. Guests enjoyed an afternoon of lunch, a silent auction, and shopping one-of-a- kind Pay It Forward jewelry at the scenic Defiance Ridge Vineyards. 

Chapel of the Cross was honored for their years of generous service to the Inn which began with their women’s ministry over a decade ago. Pastor Mark Hoehner accepted the “Inn”-credible Partner award on behalf of Chapel of the Cross, along with several longtime volunteers. St. Charles Program Director, Denise Fondren, shared a  heartwarming snapshot of daily life at the Inn, informing guests just how their support changes lives.

Thank you to all our sponsors, donors, volunteers and guests for helping to make this Our Lady’s Inn’s a most successful Luncheon for Life event!
