I am pleased to be your president and I thank all of you for your support and faith for allowing me to serve you in this position for the 2017-2019 Diocesan Council. I ask for your continued prayers for the League.
I have been a CWL member for over 25 years and have served for several terms on the Diocesan Council in the past several years. As I was reviewing (cleaning up) old files, I was able to note what I had done regarding the CWL. I held the positions of Community Life, sub chair for Education and Health, Legislation Chair, Communication Chair, President-Elect and now President. I started with St. Peter’s Council in 1990 and moved over to Sacred Heart Council around 2006.
The more I got involved with the CWL the more my faith has grown. The League is an amazing group – calling its members to holiness through service to the people of God.
I am a retired engineer, married to my husband Stephen for 38 years, have one son and a daughter-in-law and now enjoy the summers out in Sicamous BC (we are opposite snowbirds: stay for the winter – leave in the summer!). We travel a lot but with emails, Facebook, texting, it is very easy to keep in touch.
The Diocese of Calgary Catholic Women’s League has a couple of busy years ahead. I pray and hope that I am able to guide our councils through it all. I will, with God’s help.
I look forward to working with all of my sisters and especially to seeing you all at our various gatherings.
