St Clement hosted a “listening session” last night. Sponsored by the State Officers and attended by a very large geography of the Archdiocese of Detroit. We had just over 90 men show up representing Councils from all over SE Detroit. The State Officers lead a discussion on the programs and activities that are resulting in growing Councils. There was a tremendous amount of discussion and many ideas were offered.
Thank you to Father Steve for allowing us to use the social hall. Many people commented on our beautiful church and it’s facilities. Russ Morgan, thanks for getting the audio and presentation gear in order. And a big thanks to Steve Betka, Lester Ottenwalder, Mark DiPaola, Joe Suminski, Marcel VanDaele and, of course, our very own barista Dan O’Brien for the leading the coffee bar. You guys jumped in and helped just because I asked. I do appreciate you!
Our illustrious District Deputy Gary Kopp leads our efforts to protect, preserve and encourage life with Compassion Pregnancy Center in Clinton Township. Gary’s District #24 has been very active in their support of this ministry. It’s great when “support” shows up in the form a pallet of supplies.
Gary, thank you for your leadership and unselfish desire to help all God’s children.
