    One of the accountability requirements in the job description of your president is to deliver an annual accounting of accomplishments to the membership. I was humbled reviewing the accomplishments of this year of the pandemic.

The Ladies of Charity Prayer

(to be said at 9:00 a.m. every Monday):
Charity, Humility and Simplicity
My God, I humbly beg you to make me an instrument of your love; give me the grace of performing all my actions to help my neighbor with charity, humility and simplicity.

It is my hope, Lord, that fidelity in the practice of these virtues may obtain the reward which you have promised to those who serve you in the person of the poor.
