Reflections on Aids Ministry/Aids Assist in Celebration of 25 Years of Service
Mary Treanor
 
My awareness of AIDS and HIV and my education about their seriousness began when Aids Ministry/Aids Assist set up office space in several “unused rooms” at the Parish Center of St. Joseph Parish, South Bend, where I worship.  This was several years after the ministry began.
 
At first, my support was monetary, but Sister Ethne Kennedy and Michael Beatty soon let me know that there were needs that were difficult to meet because of restrictions on spending money from grants and other sources of support, and so I moved from cash contributions to shopping detergent and bleach sales and buying soap and paper goods to provide supplies that case workers could give to the sick and their families.
 
I don't have a great deal of discretionary income, so it is important to me that the organizations to whom I give make good use of what they receive, and on this score, Aids Ministry/Aids Assist ranks high.  What I have witnessed over almost twenty years is a generous staff for whom serving those in need is not a job—though they are professionals—but a vocation, a way of living, that calls for compassion as well as expertise.  I am humbled and blessed to share in serving those who have HIV or AIDS and their families.
