    • What's New at PROFAM

      On Friday, September 11, St. Andrew's Episcopal Cathedral will hold its 19th annual community service honoring First Responders. This year, as we participate in the work of mitigating the spread of illness, our service will be online. We invite you to join us at Noon for this special service of prayer for those who work every day on the front lines to keep our community safe and well. Our guest speaker is Captain Jack Kielty, in his 38th year of working with the New York City Fire Department.

      You can access the servies online at:

      The current COVID-19 pandemic is unprecedented, and it can be easy for affiliate leaders to become overwhelmed. This document will assist affiliate leaders in identifying the most important issues facing our members and provide the informational resources needed to lobby local, state and provincial officials to ensure best practices are in place. If you have additional questions or need further assistance, contact your District Vice President.
