On May 6, 2017, the Archdiocese of Washington Ladies of Charity celebrated its Annual Mass for May Day and the Crowning of the Blessed Mother at St. Ann’s Center for Children, Youth and Families (St. Ann’s). Since St. Louise de Marillac’s feast day was changed from March 15th to May 9th, this year for the first time a dual celebration was held with a luncheon honoring St. Louise. After Mass, the members gathered in the auditorium for the luncheon. Also, donations were made to St. Ann’s for its residents. Sr. Mary Bader, CEO of St. Ann’s thanked the members for their many gifts of kindness.
