GREETINGS

FROM THE PRESIDENT

  

Dear Parish Catholic Women’s League Presidents and Sisters in the League,

  

It is my privilege to officially invite you to the 70th Saskatchewan Provincial Annual Convention, to be held at Holy Trinity parish in Regina, SK on Sunday & Monday, June 3rd & June 4th, 2018. I encourage all Councils to send delegates to this Convention since it is important that all Councils gather socially to celebrate what we have accomplished in our 70 years together.

  

On the website you will find:

  • Tentative Convention agenda HERE
  • List of accommodations HERE
  • Registration Form (return before May 21, 2018) HERE

  

I would ask that you invite your Spiritual Advisor to attend as well. There will be a meeting of all Spiritual Advisors in attendance on Sunday afternoon. All registrations and payments must be returned before May 21, 2018. Please note that due to Mass at Holy Trinity at noon, there will be no lunch served on Sunday during registration. However, there will be light refreshments.

  

We are very pleased to have National first Vice-president, Fran Lucas joining us on Sunday to give a workshop on the planning strategically initiative that the National CWL is currently undertaking. In addition, we will have a brief presentation by Alex Schadenberg from the Euthanasia Coalition.

  

On Monday, we will be hearing from Father David Reilander, president of the Catholic Missions in Canada. This is Father Reilander’s first opportunity to speak to the CWL of Saskatchewan and we are looking forward to hearing from him.

  

We have received a limited grant from national to assist with members with part of the cost of travelling to this convention. Your diocesan president will have special mileage forms to fill out. We urge you to car pool as much as possible. I sincerely hope you will join us and look forward to meeting all of you.

  

Sincerely,

  

Margaret Schwab

Saskatchewan Provincial CWL President

  • From NL CWL: "Your CWL sisters in Newfoundland and Labrador are thinking about you during this tragic time in your province. CWL members were busy making comfort quilt tops to be sent to the home of the Broncos in Saskatchewan.  Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.  We hope you may find some comfort when you wrap up in your quilt.  May God bless you all and remember that the souls called home are Saints forever."
