Thanks to Terry Strolia, the Mid-America members once again met for their annual fall pilgrimage. This year we gathered at St. Terese's Shrine in Darion, IL. There we saw an abundance of St. Terese's artifacts, watched a video of her life and her simple acts of kindness and was led in mass by our new District Spiritual Advisor, Fr. Gus. The day ended with a delicious luncheon and closing prayer. Also, the Shrine is located on 50 acres of land and the weather was gorgeous, so a few of us took in some of the grounds. Near the pond stood the signs of the cross as well as, statues of both Mary and Jesus.  
Thank you again to Terry, it was a beautiful day!
