Sr Margaret Charles Kerry - Pauline Cooperator Update

I have been appointed full time director for the Association of Pauline Cooperators having completed my second term on Provincial Government. It has been a blessing to serve our Province during these last six years. Now I am ready to give full time to the Pauline laity. I will be requesting your assistance soon for insight on proceeding to create an organization that will serve you nationally.
Here are my temporary contact numbers and an update on other events:
 New “temporary” phone number – Ext. 4463 (direct line 617-676-4463)
 New temporary office in Boston – HR Office location
 Travels – To Philadelphia at the end of September for the book fairs interviews with principals (over 200 meet on September 23, 2008) and librarians. Connect with presentation of Sr Rose in October for DREs and Sr Anne Joan in November for Religious Educators. Possible trip to St Louis for the benefit dinner and to connect to cooperators on the board.
 Cooperator Conference: Princeton, New Jersey (Vincentian Renewal Center) October 31st – November 2nd. Fr. Antonio Da Silva is coming from Rome (Vatican) for the Conference. Fr. Da Silva is the Postulator General for the causes of Pauline Saints. Cost for the weekend will be about 175.00 all inclusive. Assistance is available.
 Pilgrimage to Rome April 2009: This is being worked on for the Cooperators/Benefactors who would like to make a Pauline Pilgrimage “In the Footsteps of St Paul” for one week in Rome (possibly Alba/Turin/Milan). More information will be coming in this regard. The Pilgrimage was requested by the Cooperators in New York and New Jersey. Sr Barbara Gerace is assisting with our contact in Rome Sr Anna Maria Killing, fsp. The dates include the Pauline Family Event at the Basilica of St Paul on April 22nd, 2009. An itinerary and cost will be available on August 8th.

We can always have a pilgrimage in 2010 as well! One week to accomodate the rising cost of gas even in Europe...We will check it out this year for great places to stay for the right price - and how to get around - on Vespas!
