We, of the DOK Board, are excited about plans for the 2014 Diocesan Assembly and hope to see many of our Sisters from around the Diocese.Assembly will be August 1-2 at Holy Faith in Santa Fe! Put the date on your calendar, so you don't miss it!
Already the Frederick B. Howden Chapter is hard at work with plans to make this a fun and memorable Assembly. A block of rooms has been reserved at the Sage Inn, not far from the Plaza and church for the amazing price of $104/person/night. This is a wonderful price for Santa Fe during Opera Season and you can share a room with a friend to split the cost. To make it easier on those traveling, we will gather on Friday evening (starting at 5PM) at the Sage Inn Sunrise Room for registration, light supper, and our first talk.
Saturday events, like the business meeting, Eucharist, and talks, will be at Holy Faith. Our host chapter is planning many lovely things for the Assembly in the way of welcome and meals.
After the Assembly there is the opportunity for a private tour of the Georgia O'Keefe Museum and/or a night at the Santa Fe Opera to see Carmen. (If you are interested in Carmen, contact VP Heather Wales so she can start to get an idea of how many might want to attend.) Maybe you just want to do some sight-seeing in the City Different and have dinner at La Fonda or one of the other delightful places in Santa Fe.
Registration forms for Assembly will be sent out after Easter. The registration cost this year will remain the same as last year ($40). Every chapter should plan to have some representation this year as we share ways to live out our vow of Service from the Prov. 7 Service Chair, Marilyn Lawson.
While you are making plans to attend this year's Assembly-start thinking about sending a delegate to Triennial July 19-23 in Midway, UT. Track plans for Triennial on the special section of the National website.
You can follow the 'virtual torch' through all the Dioceses, both nationally and internationally, from now until Triennial. Watch the world light up with Daughters upholding the Light of Christ. The Diocese of the Rio Grande will be featured in October!
