The Little Things ARE the Big Things

Cap Corps 2014-2015

       The other day, I kept trying to think of something big that has happened so far that would be obviously recognized as a success, but had no luck. I went to work that day, and it was one crazy thing after another. I was needed in three different classrooms that day and was going crazy trying to track down kids and sneak them out of classes to have them contribute to their teachers’ surprise teacher appreciation gifts for Catholic Schools Week.


CapCorps Board Meeting

2015 02 CapCorpsMtg2

       On Saturday, February 28, the Board of Directors of our Cap Corps Volunteer program met in DC for a day-long strategic vision session. From left, Frank Yacobi, OFM Cap.; Al Carver, OFM Cap.; Margaret McIntyre Stacy (Cap Corps Director and former volunteer); Jay Long; Paul Dressler, OFM Cap.; Ana Chappa, Bob Toomey, OFM Cap.; Sarah Hack Mooney and Tony Brunswick. 

       Ana, Sarah and Tony are former Cap Corps volunteers from 2001, 1999 and 1998, respectively.

      Reports tell us that the meeting, held at the DC Cap Corps house, was very productive!

Cap Corps Remembers Fr. Bill

ShirtCapCorpsThe Many Faces & One Golden Smile:
Thanks, Fr. Bill!!

      I asked the Cap Corps Volunteers to share stories and pictures. I've received tributes from the first group in 1993 all the way to the group that just ended their year in July, 2014.

       Here are their words about the dear man and the devoted friar that Cap Corps will so fondly remember for years to come . . .

"Volunteers bring vitality"

What organization in its right mind wouldn't love to add excitement, energy and inspiration to its work and its mission? What would it be like to have people who contribute time, experience, passion and energy to your goals and dreams? Invite some volunteers to join you and they will do all that by bringing ideas, commitment and vitality along with service.  That's what volunteers have done for us . . . .
