Since the beginning of the CHNetwork twenty years ago, the Board of Directors has been a crucial foundation to our work. They have been friends in the Lord, guiding our mission, especially when facing corporate and financial decisions. With the passing of dear Father Ray Ryland — who had been Vice President and Chaplain from the onset — it was necessary for us to add members to the Board. Consequently, we are happy to introduce to you our new Board members, along with short bios of the present Board. Please pray for them and our work together.
