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.
