Sept 2016: Largest Dominican Family Event Ever!

    
 

On Monday, September 12th, our Dominican Family enjoyed a fabulous evening together, kicking off the 2016-2017 new year.  The very popular Pot Luck Dinner drew a record gathering of more than 110 members.  All of the incredible photos are courtesy of Kelly Reed and can be viewed at:

Our new Chairperson, Georgia Skopal, presented the very exciting plan for the new year, based on the theme of "Moving from Tolerance to Compassion".  The Leadership Team decided on the theme in response to the very violent, divisive and hateful events taking place throughout our country and our planet today and our desire to make a little difference.

New Dominican Family website...

One of the most exciting announcements of the evening was the launching of our new Dominican Family website.  It is something that has been in the works for some time.  Former Chairperson, Denise Stasio and Communication Chair, Carolyn Bobo made our website a reality.  The website is full of helpful information...it not only tells our story, but it has an incredible calendar filled with all upcoming events and much, much more... Please check it out at dfhouston.org

Financial Report...

Judy McCullough, our DF Financial person, provided a recap of our finances.  In 2014 a collection was taken to cover the expenses of our growing Family, which had previously been covered by the Dominican Sisters of Houston.   So much was raised that a donation was not necessary in 2015.  However, we are requesting another donation to cover our expenses for the upcoming year. Judy distributed donation envelopes, however, donations can either be given to Judy at an upcoming meeting or mailed to her at:

Richmond, TX 77406

Angela House Fund Raiser

Would it be O.K. if your electric provider sent a donation to Angela House every time you paid your electric bill?

Last year, Sr. Maureen O’Connell and John Hensley set up a Fund Raiser with Stream Energy.  It’s very simple…sign up for Stream service on the Angela House webpage…every month when you pay your electric bill; Stream donates $5.00 to Angela House.  Stream Energy is a very successful retail electric provider, (just like Reliant, TXU and Direct), that offers very competitive rates.  Stream is the choice of many of the Dominican Sisters and Dominican Family members. The link to the program is below, with a short video about the program:
