Frederica Mathewes-Green, a Christian writer and commentator from Baltimore, was the featured speaker during a March 19 banquet to benefit the Care Net Center of Greater Orleans, an agency based in Albion.

Mathewes-Green shared her optimism about the pro-life cause. She urged the crowd of 250 people at the Brockport State College to support the Care Net Center, which saw client visits double in 2012 when it moved to the former Lipton’s office at 111 West Ave., across from McDonalds. The center offers pregnancy testing, fetal development information, limited ultrasounds and testing for the sexually transmitted infections chlamydia and gonorrhea.

After giving her speech, Mathewes-Green signed copies of her books, including “The Illumined Heart: The Ancient Christian Path of Transformation”.
