Congratulations to our new president, Marcella Herndon, and her newly installed officers.
Father, You guide and govern everything with order and love.
Look upon the assembly of our new ACCW officers
and fill them with the spirit of Your wisdom.
May they always act in accordance with Your will
and their decisions be for the peace and well-being of all. Amen.
Welcome to the 2014-2015 Chicago Archdiocese Council of Catholic Women. I am honored to serve as your President.
We have already experienced much success! And as we progress, we remain focused on our goals: increasing communication, collaboration and more parish involvement, and maintaining financial stability. As a team, we can enhance and target strategic actions of our mission statement: support, empower and educate all Catholic Women in spirituality, leadership, and service.
At our Fall Assembly we experienced success, and the love you showed our Cardinal George and each other made it evident that, “This was the day the Lord had made and we were rejoicing and glad in it.”
As we embark on the start of the Holiday Season, I want to take a moment to extend my greetings and best wishes to you! The true meaning of the Holiday Season is very simple. It’s a time to join with family and friends and give thanks to God for all that we enjoy together. I look forward to a year of celebrating accomplishments as we prepare for the finest years ahead of us. Moreover, I look forward to getting to know more of you as we celebrate the 2014-2015 Council year together!
Excited about ACCW,
Marcella Herndon, President
