Celeste Ward is the Relief Society president of the Chattanooga Stake of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The Relief Society, founded in 1842, is the women’s organizations for the Church.
Its purpose, in part, is to work in unity to help those in need.
“I invite women of all faiths in the greater Chattanooga area to join us in serving those in our community who need a hand up,” Mrs. Ward said. “As followers of Jesus Christ, who reigns, we share a joint mission – to go about doing good – to help the poor and needy, to mourn with those who mourn, to lift where we stand – to care for one another and God’s creations. Blessings come to both the giver and the receiver when we are united in serving one another. In unity, we can strengthen individuals, families, homes, communities and nations. Please join us on Saturday, March 9 for our women’s day of service. Believe. Love. Do.”
