I want to personally congratulate Jim Driscoll on his appointment, and thank Gerry D’Avolio for his service these last few months.

The relationship between our two organizations has been most rewarding over the past 20 years of MFI’s existence, and we look forward to continuing our work together on issues affecting marriage, family and the sanctity of human life.
