Be Blest, Be Grateful & Give Thanks
The P A Office of the ACW is pleased to announce through our invitation Bishop Peter Joh of South Sudan has been granted a Visa to travel and be with us for the upcoming Bishop’s Convocation Feb 24-26, 2018. He will be the guest of the Archdiocese.
The ACW also is pleased to announce the Archbishop’s Hartley Vocational & Food Pantry (AHVFP) which opens March 16, 2018 within the Jurisdiction of Good Shepherd ACW in Belleville, Illinois. We have already begun to receive donations from across the country and Canada. Our benefactors have been gracious to us over the years, yet we have not fully maximized these blessings, now under their guidance in 2018 we will invest a new infrastructure approach that we shall not only reach out to our Local Community but where all ACW doors are opened. All gifts and donations will flow and be directed through the AHVFP. A salaried Director will be appointed & announced Sunday Feb. 11, 2018.
Our consecration date has been reset for Sunday, February 25, 10:00 AM. There will be some changes to the agenda as we reactivate canonical orders and remove inactive ones.
All 2018 ACW scholarships will be directed to ACW members around the world, further information on this will be posted later…..
We thank our gracious benefactors for their contribution to us over the years. Now we welcome 2 new benefactors; State-Farm-Insurance & American-Express. More later……….. Have a blest week.
In His Service,
Fr George Grimes
Acting General Secretary
