As summer fades and the leaves are falling I reflect on the past fall workshops that were so successful!  Thank you all for attending and thank you to the host courts, we are all learning together.

From Luke 6:38 The way we give to others is the way God will give to us.   This passage reminds me of last Sunday’s Mass celebration of Jesus- King of the Universe!  The gospel from Matthew read; For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me…we all know this right?  The homily was so moving that I can still hear Father saying “it isn’t about what we haven’t done; our thoughts should be what I can do?”  As Catholic Daughters we support so many charities of those in need, let us not overlook those closest to us who would feel joy just by a smile or a greeting.  As we approach this Advent season let us personify the Catholic Daughter motto “In Unity and Charity”, invite someone to join this wonderful organization of Catholic sisterhood.
