Soon my first year as president of the Women's Club will be complete. My goal this year was to have the club become more spiritual in keeping with our new motto, "Faithful Women in Action." Now just ask yourselves, are you spiritually healthy? We as a club have just experienced our annual Day of Prayer with about 85 women in attendance. Sister Kathleen Adamski was our speaker and facilitator taking us through an examination of ourselves and also how we felt about being vulnerable. In November we were blessed with a retreat entitled, "Sitting at the feet of Jesus "; in January, a communion prayer breakfast in celebration of Elizabeth Ann Seton, our Patron; and since the beginning of our operating year, monthly adorations with the Divine Mercy Chaplet at 3 p.m. In April, Jack Seibert gave a spiritual talk on "Plenary Indulgences" before our meeting while we gathered with coffee and danish. But there is still more to come, and we are certainly on our way of becoming healthier in our faith.Our second biggest fundraiser of the year, "April in Paris" fashion show was held on April 1st at Pawleys Plantation. So many women put much time and energy in getting everything organized and ready for this fabulous event. It's never one to miss, that's for sure and we certainly didn't disappoint anyone who attended. Monies raised from this go into a fund and are distributed to many local charities. The Grant committee worked diligently to approve grant proposals and in June grants will be presented to ten worthy charities.
My board of officers have been magnificent, amazing, incredible, etc. What else can I say? The year would not have gone as smoothly without them. I am proud to be their leader and am humbled at the same time to have such a group of dedicated and spiritual women to lead.So how do I feel at this point of my service? Relieved, satisfied, and more spiritually healthy .President,Nancy Szarowicz
