For the upcoming year, your leadership commission would like the focus, to be Passing on our faith and Service to others. Please promote the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist and educate the faithful about what Catholics believe and why. Also, renew the practice of works of mercy.

Our other focus will be Walking with moms in need. Please provide educational material on pregnancy, the hazards and scares of abortion. Offer healing service for families in need due to divorce, abortion, illness, accident, or suicide. Invite expectant parents to receive a special blessing from the priest for their unborn child and encourage parents to bless their children by tracing the Sign of the Cross on their forehead and reciting, “I bless you, in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Amen”.

We encourage you to email articles that you would like to see promoted on the website, www.gidccw.org , for all of DCCW to view. These can be sent to Sheryl Perkins at ise45@hotmail.com There are informative articles from our spiritual advisor, officers, commission chairs, updated bylaws, current events, etc., that we hope you will share with your parish. Please take some time to check it out.

“Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; He will never let the righteous fall.” Psalm 55:22
