Greetings from Carol Grefenstette Bates

As the John Carroll Society begins its 67th year, I welcome you as its 33rd President to explore this website. The John Carroll Society is an organization of Catholic professionals from the legal, healthcare, and business communities who in fellowship seek to grow spiritually and through service, to support the Archbishop of Washington. Now in his 31st energetic year as Chaplain, Monsignor Peter J. Vaghi provides the John Carroll Society with intellectually rigorous and loving spiritual leadership.

Whether you are a longstanding, new, or potential member of the John Carroll Society, I invite you to explore this website for its wealth of information about the Society’s programs and activities. Each provides an opportunity to enrich your spiritual life or share your time and talent in service to others. After a long career in business, I appreciate the unique way the John Carroll Society provides light and nourishment on one’s journey of faith.

In the year ahead, I hope to expand the number of professionals in the Washington area who experience the rich gifts of faith, service, and fellowship found in the John Carroll Society. Pope Francis calls us to be bold and engaged in our faith. See you at an event soon!

Faithfully yours,

Carol Grefenstette Bates
President
