Bethlehem House blessed by Bishop McDonnell

Posted: Updated:

Springfield Bishop Timothy McDonnell blessed the new home of Bethlehem House on Sunday afternoon.

McDonnell made his way from room to room at the crowded facility on Knipfer Street.

Bethlehem House is a nonprofit organization, which offers free pregnancy resources for women and men in crisis.

The new facility is the group's third since opening in 2006.

They have provided assistance to over 1,000 people in that time.

"We do high chairs, strollers, pack and plays, pack and play sheets and bibs," said Pamela Hibbard, director of the Bethlehem House. "A lot of individual people have stepped forward and made things. It makes it a lot easier for us to help the moms with the supplies they need."

Bethlehem House is funded in part by the Annual Catholic Appeal of the Diocese of Springfield.
