Your Real Champion® – “Two Priests and a Nun Walked into a Bar…”

Kensington has one of the highest concentrations of people experiencing homelessness in Philadelphia and has also become one of the busiest hubs for drug dealers in the country. In 2015, two priests and a sister opened the Mother of Mercy House in a local bar to provide food and clothing for God’s needy members of the community. Karen Crane and Dianne Hoffman have both experienced the pain of watching family members suffer from addiction and have committed themselves to carry out this beautiful mission that began seven years ago.

Each week, we highlight the Real Champions in your life! Your family, friends, or colleagues who go the extra mile to help others in their community.
