Challenge to Deaneries on collection of Dues & Sem. Funds

“UPDATE: If you do not see your parish listed here, please check w/ your local Parish Ladies group to see if it got sent in to her yet.

Here’s Judy’s request: Time is getting short and it is very important to receive the registration forms prior to the Assembly so that money can be deposited, rooms can be arranged, name tags made, and arrangements can be finalized for meals with Camp Comeca. I know there is money in the mail but we are still about $2,000 short of our goal for the check to the Bishop for the Seminarian Fund.Mary and Tonya have just returned for a National Seminar and are very excited to make the presentations, “Reflecting God’s Joy.” So, encourage friends to get their registrations in, check to make sure your parish’s dues and seminarian funds have been forwarded and prepare for a “meaningful Assembly. Have a Blessed Holy Week. DCCW Treasurer, Judy Wagoner”

Why should my parish support the GI Diocesan Council of Catholic Women? Because we are the voice for all women.  The mission is to support, empower and educate all Catholic women in spirituality, leadership and service. The web page for the Grand Island Diocesan Council of Catholic Women has a wealth of information about the Council and what it is doing around the Diocese. There is information on the webpage about the upcoming events and projects underway. Please get in the practice checking the webpage, like the GICCW Facebook page and send in your dues to support the Diocesan Council and get active

The Seminarian fund was started 10 years ago to show our support of the seminarians in the diocese and the power of our organization. A check for $10,000.00 has been presented to the Bishop at the Spring Assembly for the Seminarian Fund. Since that time, we have made the gift of $10,000.00 each year to the Diocesan Seminary Fund to show that the Council is active and supportive of our seminarians.

We would propose a “challenge”…….. Which Deanery can achieve the highest participation percentage for contributions to both funds??  The prize will be “Bragging Rights” at the Spring assembly! Can we hear from more of our parishes then in the previous year? I have the deposit book ready and waiting to hear from you. Please make sure to designate on the check what the proceeds are for (contribution Sunday/dues or Seminary Fund).
