A Great Way to Start the Day!


We gathered 30-strong at Claire Toth’s home to celebrate our February Home Mass.  What a great way to start the day!


Outside the weather was drizzly and gloomy, but inside Monsignor Guenther was talking to us about light the light that each of us has and that we bring to all the children that we reach through the Christ Child Society and its programs.  He shared how important it is for each person to be affirmed and how each of us provides that affirmation to the children through our personal service, whether we actually get to meet them or not, because our work shows that someone out there cares. 
Thank you to Claire for hosting and to Monsignor for inspiring us!

....And it was Good


“And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good.” - Genesis 1:31


Like  the proverbial postman, neither snow, nor sleet nor ice kept Chapter members from gathering for our February Home Mass.  Graciously hosted at Marjorie Waltzingers’ Home and celebrated by the inimitable Monsignor Guenther, the February Home Mass was a great way to recharge and to refocus on our important mission: helping children in need.  As usual, Monsignor Guenther managed to weave together our mission, the life of Mary Virginia Merrick and the creation message of the daily reading with a simple message:  our work with children helps bring out”the good” in God’s creation.  What a great way to think about it!
