Chris and Deirdre Connolly used to own the deli on Beach 109th Street.  They have often been generous to St. John’s Home, especially at Christmas time.  Recently, Chris called me and said that he wanted to assure that every boy at St. John’s got a birthday cake.  He wanted it to carry the boy’s name and his age.  He assured me that it would be delivered fresh on the birthday itself so that the boys could enjoy it with the other young men in the celebrant’s apartment. 

Chris and Deirdre have always been wonderful neighbors to St. John’s.  We appreciate their continued generosity, encouragement, and understanding.  They want to share their blessings with our young men, and I’m sure they will be blessed themselves.
