Honored Women of the ECW

 Dianne Gill

“I will do it!” When the question is asked “Who will administer the St. Francis Facebook page, volunteer to fill in for the Parish Administrator, serve as Hospitality Chair, and several other tasks, Dianne breaks the silence in the group; “I will do it!”

She does all this while tending to the needs of her mother, Alna, and being a wonderful mother and friend to her daughter, Brittany. And without a doubt Jerry is the luckiest husband ever!

By being a vestry member and officer, she makes a good vestry much, much better. We’re lucky and grateful to have a great servant leader in our midst!

A direct quote from Fr. Dan Krutz, Priest in Charge at St. Francis Episcopal Church in Denham Springs.
