Quick Start Guide To Joining The ACRY

It is easy to become a member and join in the good works and fellowship of the ACRY.  If your parish has an active ACRY Chapter, speak to any officer. If not, only three interested people are needed in a Diocesan parish to form a chapter. It is also possible to join the Chapter at Large if your parish does not wish to form a chapter.

Our Membership Chairman, Vice President Jamie Dutko would be happy to answer any questions you might have and  even  arrange for a member of the National Board to visit your parish to speak in person to you! 

Don't hesitate to contact Jamie at   james.a.dutko@gmail.com
