Upcoming Activities for
Our Lady of Good Counsel No. 216
Dear Sisters of the Catholic Daughters of the Americas, we are blessed to have the opportunity to come together to share our faith and answer God’s call to service. Christ says to us in Scripture, “Where two or more are gathered in my name, I am in their midst.” As Sisters, we are never alone. As we pray and serve together, God is with us, and with Him, “All things are possible.” May the coming year be filled with God’s guidance and His many blessings.
Christina Rosch, Regent
