We did the usual things: had a wonderful time with the Sisters, Servants of Mary, meeting other people, eating a fine lunch and playing golf. But, most wonderful, was to see Jim Wilson who, despite his recent illness, made a special effort to come back and join the Sisters he has supported for so long.

We evangelize each other by sharing personal stories of faith, the purpose of this section. Read the compelling story of faith by Gene Schreiner offered for this month.

In the 1980’s while I was working for IBM in KC I came down with bronchitis one winter after a cold. The Bronchitis seemed to hang on and on. After sometime I went to the doctor who confirmed I had a bad case of bronchitis and in addition to getting a prescription to treat it I was told that because of damage to my bronchial tubes I should be careful because I most likely would get bronchitis anytime I caught a cold.

The Board of the Serra Club of Kansas City in Kansas has established a "Sister Relationship" with the Serra Club of Morogoro in order to help them further develop their vocation, membership and outreach activities.

We transmitted a letter from the Bishop of Morogoro to Archbishop Naumann thanking him for approval of this relationship (see above). To further assist the Serra Club of Morogoro in their vocations activities the Board authorized sending them a financial donation. Read more about the Serra Club of Morogoro here.
