Web Bytes…

As summertime comes to a close with last minute vacations and back to school shopping your Officers are still at work, bringing you the most updated information and happenings with Catholic Daughters.  The State Officers are hosting four workshops this fall that I do hope you all will attend.  The workshops are fun,  faith filled and interactive!  Us Officers are encouraging you to engage and learn more about this wonderful organization of Catholic Women.  My motto is “The spiritual benefits are many, the sisterhood is priceless.“  Join us!

If you are not yet aware the Officers we are seeking a member of Catholic Daughters to assume the role as Webmaster.  With my State Secretary position we as a board feel that a member would be a great way for someone to become more involved.  Prayerfully consider this ministry, I would be happy to take any questions regarding the managing of the website.
Read more in the Fall VOICE!  Stay tuned for more news and updates…happy clicking!
