Celebrates Double Anniversary
RIVER FOREST, IL September 18, 2006--The Parable
Conference Board of Directors and staff took time out from their
busy Board Meeting, September 8-9, to celebrate the 800th anniversary
of Dominican History (1206-2006) and Parable Conference’s
30 years of ministry with the family in the US (1976-2006). Center
stage was a beautiful and scrumptious homemade anniversary cake
made by Tony Butler from Dominican Volunteers USA, specially decorated
with the Dominican shield.
Board also welcomed 4 new members: Carole Nugent, Grand Rapids
Associate, Jennifer Schaaf, Columbus Associate, Jane Brown, Great
Bend Associate, and Cassian Lewinsky, Western Province friars.
Each member is blessed with a wealth of talent, enthusiasm, and
passion for Dominican life and all are eager to lend their expertise
in service to the Dominican family.
Board President, Colleen Brady, Sinsinawa Associate,
guided the Board through a packed agenda around issues of programming,
marketing, and development. While celebrating Parable Conference’s
tremendous accomplishments over the past year—logo design,
website and online services, new programs, new relationships and
collaborators—the Board re-committed to taking on the challenges
of continued growth and renewal.
