Court St.Ann, Mother of Mary  #2419

Circle of Love * Education

Education is an important part of our climate. We continue to hold both the Education Contest as well as the State, Court and scholarship in honor of one of our founding members.

We displayed the entries for both the Education Contest and scholarships at an Ice Cream Social held by the Court in June. This allowed our winners, entrants, and families to participate and interact with our Catholic Daughters. Former winners were also in attendance and one of our scholarship recipients has since become a Catholic Daughter to further her faith and service to God and our Community.
