On August 29th a prayer service was held during an afternoon of thanksgiving for donors to the Mother Angeline Heritage Center. Mother Mark Louis Randall, O. Carm. welcomed all the guests in a spirit of thanksgiving for the completion of the Center, dedicated to the memory of Venerable Mary Angeline Teresa, her six companions, and the Sister who followed after them. Mother Mark acknowledged the project team for their creativity, care and hard work in building everything to perfection. Mother Mark thanked the donors who contributed to the funding of the project: through their love and sacrifice. The donor panel, listing donors in an expression of gratitude, was premiered in the lobby of the Center.
Mother Mark led the guests with hymns, and members of the Council read the words of Sacred Scriptures reflecting the true gift of generosity. Intercessions asking for blessings on all who contributed to and those who would come to visit the Heritage Center were offered. The celebration concluded with food, drink, and fellowship.
