Today is the feast of St. Teresa of Avila. It is also the 65th birthday of third order Carmelite and long time TFP and America Needs Fatima supporter, Mrs. Olivia Hall.
Mrs. Hall has been a supporter of the TFP and America Needs Fatima since 1982, that is, 27 years. She has been employed with our America Needs Fatima office in Kansas, since the beginning of its existence.
Despite all of the trials that one can experience being involved with a non-profit organization, Mrs. Hall has been a dedicated and faithful employee. She has devoted years of her life to this magnificent cause.
As a third order Carmelite, she is also intensely devoted to Our Lady.
She has no intentions of retiring.
Mrs. Hall is the only Spanish speaking person in our office. She has communicated with thousands of Spanish speakers over the years. We don't know what we would do without her.
Mrs. Hall moved to Kansas in the early 80's from California and has been involved with our organization soon after she arrived in Kansas. Her son David, is a full-time member and volunteer of the American TFP.
Mrs. Hall was surprised today by fellow staff members and friends with a bouquet of roses, a beautiful crystal basket and a delightful luncheon. The area where lunch was served was nicely decorated so that an appropriate ambience could be created for such a momentous occasion.
Please remember Mrs. Hall in your communions and prayers today. May Our Lady grant her many more years of service in Her cause.
