President’s Letter

“Actions speak louder than words, let your words teach and your actions  speak.” Anthony of Padua    

In October, Mikele Stillman gave us a realistic view of what life was like 

during World War II. Gillian Strock and her committee prepared a  delectable array of snacks and desserts. We commend them for their hard  work.       

During the meeting, the membership voted to use monies from our 50/50

raffle to purchase water filters for Uganda. Sixty one percent of Uganda’s  population does not have access to safe water and one one of three infants die because of unsafe  water. Our objective is to help one village in Father Charles Ocul’s homeland. I hope you can find it in  your hearts to support this project.     

November’s meeting gave us insight into the literacy problem in York County. Thank you to Terese  Royer and Nancy Wright for organizing an informative afternoon.    

What a beautiful Christmas party we shared this past weekend, wonderful start to the advent season. Thank you tthe committee, Emy Delgaudio and her dancers, and the York Catholic chorus members, 

directed by Lisa Pantano, who made this day so special.         

Deacon Jeff Baylor will be the speaker for our January meeting. Past experience tells  us this will make 

for an engaging afternoon.     

Have a Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year.    

May God Bless You and Mary Keep You,     

Maria Pantano








Prayer to Our Lady of Good Counsel
Patroness of the
National Council of Catholic Women

God of heavenly wisdom, you have given us Mary, Mother of Jesus, to be our guide and counselor. Grant that we may always seek her motherly help in this life and so enjoy her blessed presence in the life to come.
O Mother of Good Counsel, patroness of the National Council of Catholic Women, intercede for us, that we may be wise,courageous and loving leaders of the Church. Help us, dear Mother, to know the mind of Jesus, your son. May the Holy Spirit fill us with reverence for God's creation, and compassion for all God's children. May our labors of love on earth enhance the reign of God and may God's gifts of faith and living hope prepare us for the fullness of the world to come. Amen
