Instructed Votes

Pamela Wilson of St. Luke's Council has provided a slide show on the Notice of Motions and proposed national per capita fees for your own use and discussion at parish council meetings. These motions will be presented at the 102 annual meeting of members of the Catholic Women's League of Canada in 2022.

At the parish level, the Instructed Vote for these motions must take place by the end of February 2022.

Be Welcoming

Welcoming is not a one-time event. It is a continuous process and mindset that touches members on an ongoing basis. It makes the League a great sisterhood and keeps members engaged and committed. It is essential that members feel welcomed and at home from their first day and genuinely connected every day.

The new Welcome Program released in September 2020 relates to two critical issues identified in the strategic plan:

  1. Include (leave no member behind) and affirm (make members feel welcomed, needed and wanted), and
  2. Validate all members.

This document will assist you as you welcome new members to your parish council and encourage the involvement of all members. There are suggestions, ideas and resources for you to adapt and customize in ways that will work best for your council.
