St Louis Benefit Dinner

Greetings from St Louis, MO where the sisters, friends and cooperators held their 20th benefit dinner! at St Raymond's Moronite Church Hall. Over 350 friends of the Daughters of St Paul turned out for a wonderful dinner, auction and commoradarie. Sisters who served in St Louis came in for this event as well as sisters who have family here. Sr Margaret Timothy, Provincial, attended and gave everyone a warm welcome and thanks as well as an invitation to join us in mission and to invite/support young women to join the FSP. Sylwia from Poland, a new postulant, had just arrived that week to study with Emily. Sr Rebecca Hoffart is the new Postulant guide. For this occassion My mom and I met in Atlanta and flew together to St Louis where her nieces and nephews and my cousins and Aunt live - many of them were able to join us at the benefit dinner - two of my cousins serve on the advisory board. The board has a dedicated group of men and women who have supported the Pauline mission all these years - passing on the torch to new members over these 20 years. A special thank you to all St Louisans!
