Responding to the generosity of Mrs. Sherba, Bishop Daniel expressed gratitude on behalf of the members of the Consistory of the Church stating: “We are truly blessed with your goodwill offering. Personally, I cannot tell how much good work will be done with the funds that you sharing this day with the Church.
