News & Events
As you know, unfortunately, our auxiliary year pretty much ended in March due to the Global Pandemic – COVID-19. The Fashion Show was canceled; Our Lady of the Year was celebrated with a masked drive by – hardly an appropriate tribute; the Installation of Officers was conducted on a Zoom video conference. All things considered, I am personally grateful for the health and well-being of my loved ones and hope that you are all safe and healthy. But as we know, time stops for no one and although our daily lives may look different, we persevere. This year will be different. These unprecedented times are pushing us to be creative, particularly with our fundraising efforts. So, we ask for your patience, understanding and generosity. We will do what we do best – work together in the spirit of unity and sisterhood. We will take every precaution to be safe while still having fun, faith and fellowship. Feel free to reach out to me anytime at 516-305-1110
. I look forward to seeing you all soon. May God bless our church, family, community and country.
Lisa James, President
