Veronica (Ronni) Gilligan, Contact Person for the Long Island Chapter and dedicated Maryknoll Affiliate for many years passed on peacefully to new life - as Ron Guidry put it - on Saturday evening 8/22.
In an email on Monday Jack Sullivan MM wrote of Ronni:
I was shocked and saddened to learn of Ronni's death when I opened my email just a while ago. I worked with Ronni when I was first with the Affiliates as Co-coordinator with Fred Goddard and Janet Srebalus; Ronni was a member of the Affiliate Board then. She was always deeply committed to the Affiliates and to Kin-dom of God values. We all now have a very active member of the "Heaven-Here-and-Now" Chapter. I will be remembering her in memory images, prayer and Eucharist.
She is not "resting" but very much ALIVE in peace...Jack Sullivan
