Are you or your council members attending this year's Diocesan Convention in Kitchener-Waterloo? The dates are May 26-28. Check out the Annual Convention link on the side menu. We look forward to seeing you there.
Dear Sisters in the League,
Now that the Regional meetings are behind us, we can look forward to our 97th Annual Convention in Kitchener-Waterloo on the last weekend in May: the 26th through 28th. I want to invite you all to come and join us in the important, annual event.
The purpose of the convention is to promote the Objects and Policy of the League, plan future programs, for the presentation of annual reports and to conduct any other business of the Council.
We start things off on Friday with both Spiritual Advisor and Presidents' meetings. This is followed by the Presidents' and Spiritual Advisors' Dinner. The Liturgy of the Eucharist will be celebrated at Blessed Sacrament, in Kitchener, by Bishop Crosby, followed by the Official Opening Ceremonies and Reception.
Saturday starts with the Business Sessions until mid-morning. Our guest speaker is John Milloy, who will talk on Euthanasia and Palliative Care. After lunch there is a More In Depth Back to Basics workshop with the Diocesan Elected Officers, followed by the Celebration of the Crowning of Our Blessed Mother. The evening starts with dinner, with entertainment by the Waterloo Region Special Education Choir.
Sunday begins with a Question and Answer period with Shari Guinta, National CWL Representative and Pauline Krupa, Ontario Provincial President. This is followed by a continuation of the business meeting and the very important Election of Officers. After lunch the buses depart for St. Anthony Daniel in Kitchener, for the Liturgy of the Eucharist, celebrated by Bishop Tonnos. The conference concludes with the Closing Banquet.
You will find all of the details on this website under Annual Convention.
The Annual Convention is a time of faith, fun and fulfillment, a time to meet with members from throughout the Diocese, a time to enjoy our sisterhood, a time to be inspired and to be renewed. Our spiritual time together provides us with focus for our faith journey. Come join us and bring along a member who has not yet had the experience of a diocesan convention.
May Our Lady of Good Counsel guide you in your choice to serve God, the League and Canada.
Blessings and hugs; and God bless.
