The First Trip to Chantal

The first trip to St. Jeanne de Chantal was in March of 2011. The focus of this trip was to begin to build up the twinning relationship and to discover the parish’s specific needs. This trip consisted of Fr. Edward Girres, Pat Timmons, Myra Miller, Melissa McGuire, Darcy Schultz, and Rick Schultz.
