On Sunday April 12th the Annual Stewardship Awards were presented to two of our Sisters in the League at Holy Rosary Cathedral by Archbishop Michael Miller. Jane Rosenthal is CWL President at the Cathedral and also serves as the receptionist at the John Paul II Centre. Anne Dobie is a CWL Life member at Our Lady of Assumption Parish. Gayle M. and Louanne R. represented our Council by helping with organization at the Mass and the reception that followed. It was a special moment to visit with two former Pastors of our parish, Fr.
