08092903 8C24 459F 9AD9 E0D8482F01DDGood Counsel Homes was originally founded to address the needs of homeless, pregnant women in New York in 1985.  Fourhomes are currently operational in the New York Metropolitan Area and in South Jersey.

Since formation, Good Counsel has had 1,219 babies born to resident moms, 15 just this year so far.   Our mothers can stay a year or longer after their baby is born.  While in residence mothers have earned their GEDs, and graduated from  NursingSchool, Culinary School, Real Estate School, and Clinical Nursing Programs.  Other Moms have attended community and county colleges, and other work related programs while working part time or full time jobs. Staffed 24/7, Good Counsel provides a family like atmosphere with all residents sharing the responsibilities of taking care of the home.   Our mothers participate in a Life Skills Program with weekly classes on nutrition, post/pre-natal education, general parenting, chastity, spirituality, finances, job preparedness, and health and computer skills.  The goal of all Good Counsel Homes is to help find the residents full time employment, safe and secure housing and to become financially and physically independent while becoming contributing members of society.

We thank you for your faithful prayerful and financial support as we do what Jesus asks us to do… “to feed the hungry, clothe the naked and shelter the homeless.

God bless you.

Dear Families of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church and School,

After a relatively quiet summer on campus, we are gearing up for a terrific year at OLPH! Many improvements await our students. Our library is now nestled right in the middle of our young readers on the first floor. Our new website not only strikes great visual appeal but also offers practical improvements like interactive electronic forms. Dedicated technology carts on each of our three floors facilitate instruction that integrates technology. Lastly, Jim Berg has been working diligently to complete his repainting and beautification of the rooms in our buildings. Many improvements have been in the works since last year to welcome our eager students for another year of nurturing our students' God-given talents and helping them to grow into lifelong learners.

Another aspect of our behind-the-scenes planning and preparation for excellence in Catholic education has included conversations with the Diocese of Trenton, which has taken a special interest in the schools of Burlington County, many of which have been struggling to offer the same quality education in the face of decreasing enrollment and increasing financial burdens. Together, we have entered into dialogue in order to ensure that Catholic education continues to thrive in our parishes and county.

A summary from our first conversation, and a similar one held at Saint Charles Borromeo, can be found in the link below. Nothing has been decided about what lies ahead of us. Surely more conversations, meetings and dialogue will transpire. What is certain from our vantage point is that we are at a crossroads. Merely staying the course is insufficient to ensure a truly vibrant educational experience. Here at OLPH, we seek your active support, participation and engagement! We are not only educating children but more importantly building up our church and school community, the body of Christ. This work of raising our children in the Faith must truly be the goal and focus of our whole community.

As our community seeks to discern the best way forward, we ask for your prayers. As your pastor, I request your prayers. Pray for our wisdom, counsel, and fortitude – all gifts of the Holy Spirit. Pray for joy, peace and patience – all fruits of the Holy Spirit. We will need the Spirit guidance to show what God has in store.

Yours in Christ,

Fr. Joel Wilson
