After serving two 2-year terms as the Chair of the Ascension Sponsor, I am delighted to share with you our new officers for the period from July 1, 2016, to June 30, 2018. The incoming officers will be:
I speak for both myself and Sr. Mary Walz when I say it has been a blessing and a privilege for us to serve in our leadership positions thanks to the help and support of the other members of the Ascension Sponsor. She and I will continue to serve as members, and we will do all we can to ensure the new officers enjoy their time in these roles as much as we have.
I want especially to congratulate and thank Sr. Mary Anne for agreeing to serve as Chair. Under her guidance, the Ascension Sponsor will continue to prayerfully shepherd our national health ministry, ensuring we remain true to the vision of our founders and our Mission rooted in the loving ministry of Jesus as healer.
In addition, we are looking forward to welcoming the newest member of the Ascension Sponsor on July 1: Zeni Fox, PhD, Professor Emerita of Pastoral Theology, Immaculate Conception Seminary School of Theology, Seton Hall University, Orange, New Jersey.
