A Letter from the President
Dear Christ Child Society of Summit members and friends,
We have much to report since February. On March 26th our 3rd Annual Baby Shower and Luncheon was held. Did you know that each year Christ Child Society Chapters across the country hold similar events? Each chapter chooses a date as close to March 25th as possible. This is because Mary Virginia Merrick, the founder of the Society, established this date to honor the Annunication of our Lord. At our event held at St. Teresa's Parish, over 100 members and friends were in attendance; the generosity of those who organized and participated in the Baby Shower is overwhelming!
At the luncheon I mentioned that I received a book titled "God is in the Small Stuff". The book contains a comment on generosity that I think is worth sharing:
"The measure of your success is not what is in your wallet but what is in your heart.
When you give a gift, expect nothing in return.
Share your blessings with others.
The generous person always has more than enough."
