Thanks to Lois and Carl Davis of Houston, Texas Sponsors of "The Church Alive"

December 13, 2013
We are deeply grateful to Lois and Carl Davis of Houston, Texas, who have sponsored "The Church Alive" series over the past year. It is the biggest and boldest project ever undertaken by Salt and Light, and has been a very fitting one to mark our tenth anniversary year.
Carl is a retired executive from the Oil Industry in Texas. He and his wife Lois moved from the Anglican Church to the Roman Catholic Church. They have been outstanding leaders, benefactors and volunteers at Our Lady of Walsingham Catholic Church & Shrine, the Principal Church of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter in Houston, Texas. They are also generous supporters of the University of St. Thomas in Houston, as well as benefactors of countless charitable projects.
Lois and Carl are great friends and supporters who have believed in our work at Salt and Light and made it possible through their generosity. During this season when we reflect on the meaning of gifts and the goodness and kindness of our God who becomes flesh and dwells among us, we give thanks to God for Lois and Carl Davis who teach us the meaning of gratuity, philanthropy, goodness and kindness.
