Web Bytes…

Spring is in the air with a flurry of activities beginning with our 52nd Biennial Catholic Daughters State Convention.  The State Convention is a wonderful event to network with your sisters in Christ.  Rest assured your State Officers are working hard to give you the best and latest information in addition to happenings within Catholic Daughters.  You don’t  want to miss the line up of guest speakers, we are blessed to have them in attendance.

 Please browse the State website for news and information, your committee chairs are staying abreast of the most recent current issues that are important to Catholic Daughters in keeping with our mission inpart “justice, equality, advancement of human rights & dignity for all”.  My point is that we have this tool of our website that is a wonderful way to communicate to the public and our members; who we are and what we do.  Be sure to keep that in mind the next time you have a bake sale, church dinner or volunteer at a missionhouse.  Let your light shine by sending me your events and photos to post on your webpage. Read more in the Spring VOICE!  Stay tuned for more news and updates…happy clicking!
