Saturday, October 24, 2020 8:30 AM – 1:30 PM
How do we go on? When and where will we meet? Who will we be? As Daughters, these are the questions we should be asking. Lord, what will you have us do?
Using as our inspiration, the words of our Motto and those of Mother Teresa—“prayer changes us and we change things” (see quotation below)—these are the questions we will explore at this first ever online Diocesan Assembly, which will include the election of new Officers and the adoption of revised Bylaws.
Special Guests will include Our Bishops; Susan O’Brien, former President of the DOK National Council; and Barbara Shreve, Province VIII Presumptive President-Elect.
We will meet using the Zoom platform. Don’t worry, instructions will be given ahead of time about how to join the meeting by computer, tablet, or phone. And there will be breaks in the day and time for fellowship.
“I used to pray that God would feed the hungry, or do this or that, but now I pray that he will guide me to do whatever I’m supposed to do, what I can do. I used to pray for answers, but now I am praying for strength. I used to believe that prayer changes things but now I know that…
prayer changes us and we change things.” —Mother Teresa
Into the Future … by the grace of God
