By Diana Davis, West District President

The West District is comprised of 13 conferences:

  • Annunciation (Brazil IN)
  • Holy Angels
  • St. Ann
  • St. Anthony
  • St. Christopher
  • St. Gabriel
  • St. Joseph
  • St. Malachy
  • St. Michael
  • St. Monica
  • St. Paul Apostle (Greencastle)
  • St. Susanna

Here are a few highlights from the district:

  • Annunciation’s is expanding its food pantry in Brazil.
  • St. Monica
    • St. Monica’s Home Visitor Coordinator Sister Kathleen Hood has volunteer to assist Council with creating our SSVP Safeguarding Framework.
    • The conference is searching for a new president.
  • St. Christopher
    • The conference started accepting bed donations—mattresses, box springs and bed frames—in 2010. Since this time, the conference has received 1,000+ beds that have been given directly to clients. All beds are inspected prior to delivering to clients.
    • St. Christopher also encourages “targeted donations” where donors can specify exactly what is done with their donations. Some donors want the assistance to go to a needy family or for us to purchase new beds to deliver to clients. Donors are always informed about how people were helped with their donation.
    • The conference also has a food pantry that helps about 250 families each week on Tuesday and Friday mornings.
