As we continue through this season of advent, we also come to the close of our Golden Jubilee year. On behalf the Board of Directors and the staff of the National Catholic Development Conference, I would like to thank all of you who have been part of our celebration this year, and throughout the past 50 years.
As I stated in my keynote address this year,
“Jesus is the reason for the season! Jesus is the reason for all seasons, I believe. And this year has been a season of celebration for our organization and Jesus will always be the reason why.”
We are fortunate to work with people like you, who display an abundance of graces that flow from your good works and the amount of generosity and joy in giving that you generate day after day after day as you engage others as partners in mission.
You are dedicated and committed people worthy of celebration.
I invite you to view our online celebration of our Golden Jubilee celebration.
We celebrate fundraising as a ministry. We don’t just support the mission of our institutes. We are one of the ministries that flows directly from the heart of the Gospel itself. As Henri Nouwen told us: “What we do is just as much a ministry as visiting the sick or preaching a sermon.”
Thank you again for being a part of our celebration and for all that you do every day in the name of the Gospel. Have a blessed Christmas and wonderful 2019!
Sr. Georgette Lehmuth, OSF
