This past weekend, the SSND Associates from Ohio and West Virginia organized an appeal “A Home in Africa” at the parish in Little Hocking, OH. They have a goal to raise $7000 which is the cost of laying the foundation for the new Provincial House in Accra, Ghana. Sister Joan Van Beek who is the director of the Associate Group in OH is also a returned African missionary. With the gracious permission of Rev. Robert Gallagher, pastor, Sister Joan introduced the congregation to the work of SSND in Africa and a second collection was taken up for the Provincial House. Associates were there to assist with the collection and materials were set up in the vestibule giving more information. All agreed it was a great way to share the mission and ministry of SSND. We are so proud of and grateful to this amazing group of Associates!
