CANFP Welcomes Two New Board Members

The Executive Board of CANFP enthusiastically welcomed two new Board Members at their semi-annual board meeting held in the Spring, 2016, in Sacramento.

Readers of CANFP NEWS and visitors to may find their names familiar, from recent articles they have authored.  

 _557_ Rizzo attends St. Patrick’s Seminary in Menlo Park, preparing to become a Catholic Priest for the Diocese of Oakland. A student member of CANFP, Mario brings a fresh enthusiasm and strong desire to share with all the wonder of understanding the beauty of our sexuality as a gift from God, but especially with young people. Short bio for Mario can be found HERE.

 _389_ Board was also delighted to have long time CANFP supporter Gary Schuberg (short bio HERE) agree to serve on the Executive Board. His experience in the business world and on boards of other pro-life organizations enriches his commitment to CANFP.

Mario and Gary join existing Executive Board Members: Lynn Keenan, MD (Presiddent,  Fresno Region), Father Blaise Berg, STD Vice President / Treasurer (Sacramento Region) and Most Rev. Salvatore Cordileone (San Francisco Region)

These dedicated leaders travel twice a year at their own expense to participate in all day planning sessions to guide the mission and programs of CANFP. In addition, they meet most months by  conference call, to direct the ongoing activities and priorities of the organization.

CANFP welcomes these two new members, and owes a great debt of gratitude to the current—and past—Executive Board Members, who have skillfully, generously, and joyfully sustained the work of  CANFP through their expert leadership these past 24 years, including:
