Director at Large
"It's been a blessing to be a part of the Christ Child Society. When I discovered Mary Virginia Merrick, I was immediately inspired by her life's work, her dedication and decision to make a difference in children's lives. While facing her own physical challenges, she stood as a beacon of hope for the poorest of the poor. I only hope that our team in Western, Massachusetts can in some way exemplify her mission and her dedication to the Christ Child."
