Sisters in Christ - A Force for Good - 05/17/13

Mary Ann Khoury, coordinator of Outreach Alaska ( projects which support the church throughout Alaska, hosted a Ladies' Luncheon at the seminary refectory. Seminarians, spouses of seminarians, faculty, staff, friends and family gathered together and enjoyed a meal catered by Mill Bay Coffee and a special treat of Antiochian Lenten sweet bread brought all the way from Kansas.  It was a time for Sisters in Christ to meet and visit.  Mary Ann presented the mission and efforts of Outreach Alaska, engaging attendees to discuss current challenges and how they may be addressed.  Ida Wassilie encouraged women by example and word to stand up and be supportive of clergy in their home villages.  Mother Gabriella presented participants of St. Herman Seminary Women's Study Group with certificates of completion.  We are grateful for all that Mary Ann does on behalf of the seminary as well as for churches throughout Alaska.  May we follow her example of giving of our time and means to support the work of God.
