“Charity, Humility and Simplicity”
After being postponed due to weather, the Ladies of Charity of Kansas City gathered at Church of the Nativity on February 28, 2019 for Mass and the first meeting of the year. Father Mike Mulhearn celebrated Mass and paused before the Offertory to install the new officers: Donna Montague, President; Erin O’Reilly, New Membership; Eleanor Raggett, Recording Secretary; and Paula Logan, Treasurer.
