Mass of Remembrance, Enrollment of New Member and Volunteer Luncheon
May 16, 2019
Mass of Remembrance and Enrollment of New Members was held on May 16, 2019 at Ss. Columba-Brigid Church with 75 members in attendance. Father Roy Herberger was our celebrant and enrolled 5 new members. We were fortunate to have Debbie Chadwick, LCUSA President, Irene Siedlarczyk, VP Northeast Region, Fran Simkulet, President Elect of the Binghamton Association and Margaret Hanson, Parliamentarian and past LCUSA President as our guests. Holly Walter, Director Northeast Region, served as Cantor for the Mass. Debbie and Irene women spoke on the need to seek new members. Debbie talked about her father playing professional baseball in Buffalo when she was a child. She likened our membership need to baseball; LOC needs to have the “bench warmers” who will be ready to continue our ministries when we are no longer able to. The Catholic Charities staff hosted a delicious Volunteer Appreciation lunch following Mass with a short report on the programs of Ladies of Charity
