Regina Barrett, President
Prince Georges County Ladies of Charity
It was such a privileged honor to meet the International AIC President Tayde de Callataÿ at the reception at St. Ann’s Center for Children, Youth & Families [last summer]. She was the final puzzle piece to the Vincentian Family connection of the Ladies of Charity. She was so very personable and caring. Knowing that the AIC is now present in more than 50 countries with over 100,000 volunteers and We are all of the SAME Spirit, all on one TEAM fight poverty of its many forms. In different ways and different languages and cultures… but all the same. She was very impressed with all of the units of Archdiocese of Washington (ADW).
Calvert County Ladies of Charity gave an awesome presentation, but she listened intently to what each of the areas shared and all were important to her and the Mission we are all together on. I was also very honored that she visited Mount Calvary Church and our Food Pantry. Before closing, I also wanted to mention that there were several Daughters of Charity at the reception and they were so grateful to be invited for what they felt may be a once in a lifetime. Thank you so much to Viola Johnson-Robinson and Debbie Self for inviting, providing hospitality and transportation for such a memorable event.
