“The Parish Pastoral Council of St. Mary of Gostyn sought the guidance of Peggy O’Flaherty when discerning roles for Commissions and when discerning council membership. Peggy also offered support to the Council by providing instruction in prayer techniques that would be useful to the faith development of the council members. Peggy supported the council in its development as a spiritually based council, allowing for the listening to the Word of the Lord. We thank Peggy for her guidance and direction in the Spiritual Development of the Parish Pastoral Council.
~ Janet Sherburne, Chair of the Pastoral Council, St. Mary of Gostyn Catholic Church, Downers Grove, Illinois
