Milwaukee,WI- Roses for Our Lady held their first Board meeting of the year on Sunday, January 10th where it was announced that Terri Balash, Director of Pastoral Care for the Family of Four Parishes; Old St Mary's, Our Lady of Divine Providence, Three Holy Women and SS Peter & Paul, was elected as Co-President alongside Incumbent President Anne Bender who has led the organization for the past four years.
"This is the first time in Roses for Our Lady's 35 year history that there will be two Presidents who will lead in collaboration with one another. It is an exciting time for our organization and will only help us continue to grow and promote Marian devotion within the Archdiocese of Milwaukee," said Bender
"This is the perfect time in my life where I can join an organization such as Roses for Our Lady," Balash said afterward. "I work directly with seminarians when they come to Three Holy Women as a teaching parish, so becoming involved with a group like this makes sense."
Balash received her Certificate for Pastoral Services from St. Francis de Sales Seminary in Milwaukee and her Bachelor of Arts degree in Community Leadership/Development and Theology from Alverno College. Terri is also married to her husband Keith and they have two children.
