President Sheryl VanderWagen writes,

Christ is in our midst! He is and always shall be!

Dear Fathers and Sisters in Christ,

I pray that you all are doing well. The fall is off to a good start and we are looking forward to seeing many of you at our Fall Gathering in Terre Haute IN. The Fall Gathering is hosted by St. George and we appreciate all of their efforts to host this meeting. May God bless everyone for all of your hard work.

This is the beginning of my 3rd term as your president. I have agreed to serve an additional term at the request of His Grace, Bishop Anthony and I am looking forward to serving you all again for the next two years.
