The Council was well represented this past Wednesday as they gathered with their spouses to honor the local priests of St. Thomas More Church and the Newman Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
They joined together at the Durham University Club (17 stories up and overlooking Durham and Orange Counties). It was a large gathering that took advantage of the Club’s weekly member buffet.
This gave the Council members an opportunity to recognize the significant contributions of our priests. They work hard for us and sure deserved a chance to break away for a few hours.
Remember, too, that we should recognize our priests, religious, and lay leaders all year through. Invite them to your home for an afternoon or evening. If you have a special event or family gathering, consider inviting them. They may not be able to attend, but you may be making an offer that fits right in. They are part of our family.
