The 95th Annual Catholic Women's League Convention for the Calgary Diocese was held on May 5th, 6th and 7th, 2017 at the Executive Royal Hotel, 2828 – 23rd Street NE, Calgary, Alberta.

During the Opening Ceremony at Corpus Christi Church, Bishop McGrattan emphasized that the CWL needs to continually look outward rather than inward. This is the call of the Holy Spirit at all times, but especially now, to witness to the social issues that challenge our Christian values and the dignity of the human person.

Dr Josephine Lombardi spoke movingly on the theme "Inspired by the Spirit, Women Respond to God's Call" with presentations on:

  • Virtuous Leadership including the story of Derek Redmond's Barcelona Olympic experience. (Dr Lombardi is willing to share this powerpoint presentation for personal use only. To receive a copy, please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..)
  • Universal Call to Holiness
  • the Seven Words of Mary including a short video of an elementary school teacher, Mrs Thompson. Listen to Dr Lombardi's presentation about how we can identify with Mary, as produced by Shalom world TV.

On Saturday morning, members enjoyed Judy Look's presentation on Three Cups of Tea. It was a good preparation for our business meeting.
