Office of Mission Advancement news


By now you have received the spring appeal featuring Sr. Mary MacIsaac and her ministry at Holy Cross/Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish in Chicago.

On our webpage, in the Congregation of Notre Dame Website, you can also read a short biography of Sr. Mary and her work in the US as well as in Central America.

Earlier in May, Vicki and I attended a workshop in Sparkill sponsored by the NCDC and it was dealing with Bequests. We learned a lot from the presentation.

We previously told you that we had written a grant for the RASKOB Foundation. Unfortunately, we did not receive the grant. We also applied for a workshop in Indianapolis sponsored by the Lily Foundation and we were also disappointed in not being selected for that workshop, but we will keep our eyes open for other possibilities.

I attended a fundraiser at St. Marguerite Bourgeoys Parish in Brookfield, CT with Sr. Martha Bowes. Along with raising funds for the poor in their parish, they also had “St. Marguerite has Talent”, a show featuring talented members of the parish. It was delightful to see how the parishioners are involved in the parish.

Thank you for your support and enjoy these warmer days.
