Graduates and Retirees

If you missed the Mothers Day of Prayer on the day before Mothers' Day then you missed an inspiring program! Sisters filled in on the spot and the program ran smoothly via the Zoom app. It was going on so well that I forgot to record it until the end.

I have been asked about the graduates and retirees so here's what we will do--we will meet this Tuesday via Zoom and decide and plan another Zoom program. We also need to decide other things like the gifts . You will receive an ID number and a password in the Remind Ap, email, or via regular text for the Tuesday, Meet May 26 at 6 PM. Yes, I know it is not 2nd Tuesday but I've been asked and Sister Paul sent word that she will help out.
