From the Desk of Our National President:
Cynthia M. Maleski
Happy Anniversary to First Catholic Slovak Ladies Association!
Dear fellow FCSLA leaders,
We celebrate the 125th anniversary of our founding in 1892. After Anna Hurban, and eight other Slovak immigrant women met in a church hall on January 1, 1892, the first convention was held in August of that same year. Fifteen women delegates from Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Indiana, and Minnesota created the vision and purpose of our association:
- To provide benefits for our members and families;
- To aid and assist members and families in time of sickness, old age and death;
- To improve the lives of our members;
- To uphold and preserve our Catholic faith.
As we embark on steps of genuine progress and change in this 21st century, we reaffirm our unwavering commitment to these purposes.
At this time, let's all take time to pause and reflect on our glorious past and our exciting future for generations to come.
Congratulations to all of us! Saint Anne, pray for us.
