Wow! What an amazing 2nd year for our CWL council!! First of all I am full of praise and offer huge thanks to Nithya, our Communications Chair, for her enthusiastic commitment and contributions to our website! Great information, editing, links, shared photos and updates! Thank you Nithya for sharing one of your many gifts!!
We have celebrated St. Joseph’s Centennial Year with gusto!! Our activities included St. Joseph’s Day, ‘Sandwiches for the Soul’ with our Youth Group, and preparation for an outstanding Centennial Dinner. We baked ‘Cookies’ for the Project Advance Campaign with our PREP children, welcomed Cristina, Kevin, and Tanya Lyn, our three guest speakers on Euthanasia and Estate/Funeral planning, attended the CWL diocesan meetings at St. Clare’s and St. Joseph’s Langley, and represented our council at the annual CWL Convention. Our council members shared humble coin donations for the Domestic Abuse Society, hosted funeral receptions, and gave a luncheon during a very special visit from Fr. John Braganza, the Abbot from the Seminary of Christ the King and Westminster Abbey. We even had a chance to attend a Mass with our Spiritual Advisor, Fr. Joseph, to celebrate CWL ‘s patroness Our Lady of Good Counsel as well as enjoy his thoughtful visits during busy times to bring his greetings and blessings to us.
My special heartfelt thanks to all our “not-so-shy-anymore members” working to make the ‘heart’ of the parish beat stronger! I look forward to September to meet the new challenges and the joy it brings. We warmly invite all our St. Joseph’s ladies to come to a meeting-YOUR voice deserves to be heard. All ideas are considered; we toss many around, build on others, and most of them often become a reality. Let us know what you would like to see happening in our very special parish.
Faith, Fun and Fulfilment…a popular CWL motto…it is just that!
Wishing you a sunny and safe summer! May Our Lady of Good Counsel bestow Her blessings upon you and your families.
Your League sister in Christ,
