In a typical exchange at the Sister Philomena Outreach Center at Christ the King Church, needy individuals from Harris and Talbot counties receive more than the blessings of groceries or financial assistance in paying their rent and utility bills.


As a necessary bonus, they also receive the hands, eyes and ears of those who allocate these short-term, emergency resources.

Father Ronnie Madden, pastor of Christ the King Church in Pine Mountain, had just finished saying evening Mass for the Feast of the Assumption when he decided to sit on his porch and watch a thunderstorm.  


Tracking lightning on the radar, he was puzzled when he suddenly saw that a strike had hit “zero miles” from where he was sitting.  He then heard an “unmerciful crack.”  When it was safe, Father Madden ran through the small patch of woods to his 10-year-old church and saw flames shooting through the cupola.
