... a national organization rooted in gospel values calling its members to holiness through service to the People of God.
New national theme ... We are challenged in our councils to be loving, joyful women who work patiently for people, whose kindness and goodness touch the lives of all we encounter, who are faithful to the Gospel message and live lives of humility and self-control.
Dear Sisters in the League,
A Blessed Christmas and Healthy, Happy New Year to each and every one of you and your families. As most of you prepare for Christmas, I have been busy preparing the Diocesan Elections Register.
Diocesan elections are just around the corner and many parish past presidents and diocesan executive are eligible candidates to stand for office. Election packages are sent out in the first week of January and I do hope that we will have a long list of women vying for positions. Your experience on the diocesan council will be rewarding. You will meet many like-minded women and have a great opportunity to make a difference not only in our diocese but in our province, in our country.
The next month is the time to think and pray about stepping up to the next level. Carefully read the pamphlet “Discerning My Call to Service” in the Election package. Review my directive in the Spectrum Fall 2016 issue, pages 7-11, which is on this diocesan web site.
Dear members please pray for each parish past president and diocesan council member to discern the call to serve and to answer “YES” to that call to serve.
May Our Lady of Good Counsel guide you in your choice to serve God, the League and Canada.
Blessings and hugs; and God bless.
