OUR PRESENTATION STORY:
In 2005 we, five Presentation Sisters, under the auspices of the North American Conference of Presentation Sisters, began ministering to the poor and homeless of the city of New Orleans right after hurricane, Katrina. Presently for the past two years there are only two Sisters here, Sister Vera and I, Sister Enid. We know well that things cannot remain the same forever. It was the decision of the Conference that we look for another way to continue the work that we began in 2005. During these past ten years we have built up a wonderful group of volunteers. We have established a Board of Trustees who has demonstrated that they hold Lantern Light’s future as a very important part of the future of New Orleans. Presently the Board has hired a new Director, Mrs. Kenitha Grooms-Williams. Ms. Beth Monahan has been hired as the Kitchen Coordinator. We have been assisting in this transition.
If nothing ever changed there would be no Butterflies. . . . . . . . . .
We believe that the Presentation Spirit will continue into the future here at Lantern Light through the laity. As religious congregations begin to age they are finding what a rich resource there is in the laity of our church. It is now time to step aside and encourage the laity to take their place in the leadership in our church. They are our Butterflies. We are so proud of them. We thank you for your support in the past and we encourage you to continue your support of Lantern Light into the future. Your time, talent and financial support are so important to the future of Lantern Light.
