Welcome New Members

In the past month, we have welcomed 5 new Daughters to the Daughters of Hope Chapter as St. Matthew's, Los Lunas and 5 new Daughters to St. Chad's Chapter, (St. Chad's, ABQ), plus 2 members reactivating after a period of inactivity!
A dozen new Sisters in Christ...and that's just the ones that I, as Diocesan President, have been able to be present to welcome and install! I know that there are others across the Diocese in discernment and being installed! The Spirit of our Lord is moving in the hearts of women across the Rio Grande to become part of the Order. It's an exciting time.
Share your photos and new members with Cindy, so we can recognize them here.

All Daughters are invited to the Cathedral on June 27 at 11AM for a light brunch and a report on Triennial from Diocesan President Cindy Davis and, hopefully, other attendees from the Rio Grande. Please keep DOK Triennial (June 19-23) and the General Convention of the Episcopal Church (June 25-July 3) in your prayers.

Your new Diocesan Board (elected at Convention in April) will be meeting in retreat at the Bosque Center in August to get-to-know each other, pray and brainstorm. The Board will be installed at St. John's Cathedral on Sunday, August 9 at 10AM. All are invited to attend. 

Be aware that Dues Payments will be handled differently starting this year. We are all being asked to pay online on the National Website. You can do that now, or wait until you get an email invoice from the National Office reminding you that dues need to be paid by September 1.  During this time of transition, you can still pay your dues by mail, but chapters will not be collecting dues from all members.
