June 13, 2019

First Quarter Meeting
Sunday, March 31, 2019 was the first quarter meeting of District 7 at Mary Church Fellowship Hall in Hillsborough, NJ. There were many agenda items discussed. At the top of the list was the district’s 100th anniversary celebration on Sunday, October 20, 2019 at St. Mary Church in Hillsborough. Members interested in helping to plan this event will meet at a future date to finalize plans. District 7 was organized in 1919 in New York City.

2019 Matching Funds
This year District 7 has chosen St. Jude Hospital as its Matching Funds recipient. St. Jude Hospital was founded in 1962 by actor Danny Thomas. The hospital helps children suffering with cancer to receive the help they need totally cost free. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude. The major part of the hospital’s funding comes from individual contributions. District 7 will be accepting donations through Saturday, August 24 for this very worthy cause. If you care to make a donation, please make checks payable to: GCU District 7 and mail to: Kathleen Meddaugh, 38 Summerfield Road, Belvidere, NJ 07823. Thank you in advance.

Congratulations
A very special congratulations to Chaplain Fr. Jim Badeaux who celebrated the 20th Anniversary of his ordination on Sunday, June 2, 2019. He invited all the members at the meeting to his celebratory Liturgy and reception that followed in the church hall.
