In this our 50th year, due to the restraints of the Covid pandemic, we were not able to join together as is our tradition for the annual installation ceremony. In lieu of Mass and dinner, our first virtual installment was held on September 22, 2020 by Zoom call. A special thank you to Shelby Blendell who worked tirelessly to make this happen.
Father Butler opened with prayer and inducted the officers who will serve for the 2020 – 2022 term. They are:
President – Mary Clinton
Vice President – Michele O’Hare
Recording Secretary – Mary Ann Conway
Treasurer – Jackie Stampalia
These women have pledged to assume the challenges these offices hold while being mindful of the mission of the Ladies of Charity. As reflected in the Officer’s Pledge: “May your journey be smooth . . . as you seek out ways to continue to serve our brothers and sisters in need. May God, whose love is never ending, guide you always with his gentleness and may each of you experience the peace, joy and love of God in your heart.”
We are also pleased to report that the following women have joined us as new members. After the blessing of the pins and manuals also offered by Father Butler, the following were installed:
We ask our Lord to bless these women and watch over them as they begin their journeys as Ladies of Charity. We look forward to serving side by side with them very soon.
And finally, the following women were installed as life members. Whether they continue in service with our ministries or support us through prayer, we ask God’s blessings on these magnificent women. May their footsteps be our guide.

We extend our warmest welcome and congratulations to you all.
