Remembering the 203 bodies of Children Found in BC
Please remember the families and communities who are mourning the loss of 213 angels who never returned to their earthly homes and families.
Many CWL members are marking this loss with stuff animals, lights and shoes on their porches as a memorial symbol and a symbol of support.
Support for A Place Called Home
The homeless shelter in Lindsay has had to move their operation to a hotel/motel just outside the town limits. The original building has been demolished and a new building is now being constructed. The Lindsay CWL is supplying baked goods for the residents who are challenged by living in the temporary setting. A cup of coffee and a baked good may help to lift spirits as well as fill the stomach. This outreach has been supported every month.
LEADERSHIP PROGRAM POSTPONED
The Peterborough Diocesan Council has had to postpone the Leadership program scheduled to begin on May 29, 2021. The program will be rescheduled once COVID restrictions are lifted. Be well everyone and pray for all who are suffering as a result of the pandemic.
In Loving Memory of Margaret Van Meeuwen, Past President of the Peterborough, Diocesan Council, Life Member and Friend
Blessings on This Thanksgiving Weekend to you and Yours!
St. Mary’s, Lindsay ~ CWL 100th Anniversary Dedication
Seven members gathered on August 6 to plant three trees in memory of 100 years of service through The Catholic Women’s League of Canada. The three pyramid cedars (nicknamed the three Marys) were planted in an area of St. Mary’s Cemetery that is reserved for the burial of priests. The council‘s first general meeting during the pandemic, on August 20 in the cemetery, began with a dedication ceremony. A memorial plaque honouring national in 2020 and St. Mary’s CWL and Peterborough Diocesan CWL in 2021 will be engraved and placed with the trees.
Pictured are President Anne Marie Werry (back left) and the members who attended the dedication ceremony and meeting.
