The Month of March has come and gone.
We took part in the World Day of Prayer at the Salvation Army church on Friday, March 7th. The service was held just before noon and concluded with a lovely meal in the church hall. This year’s theme was “Streams in the Desert”. The service was prepared by the people of Egypt.
Several of our members also led a World Day of Prayer service at the Dr. Cooke Extendicare home on Tuesday, March 4th. Appreciation goes out to all those who helped!
Our Regular CWL March meeting was held on Wednesday, March 12th. My goodness our parish is busy!
First Communion classes were also held that evening, as well as the parish pastoral council.
Our ladies led the Stations of the Cross on Friday, March 14th. Thanks to all who helped out.
A few of us attended the Zone 4 meeting in Vermilion on Saturday, March 15th at Holy Name of Jesus Parish. Zone 4 consists of CWL councils from Vermilion, Wainwright, Provost and Lloydminster. It was good to share what each council does! Ladies from Wainwright were interested in the Prayer Shawl ministry, so information was forwarded to them. Fr. Roger Rouleau spoke to us on “Seeing God in Others”, and a couple from Vermilion shared their experiences in visiting Medjugorje. Wainwright council has a very successful garage sale which they have held for the past many years. (Looks like this might be something we’ll try).
Thank you to Zone Chair Donna for organizing the day!
Our regular CWL April meeting was held on Wednesday, April 2nd. We started the meeting with prayers for those who are ill and then watched a DVD with Char Vance on her conversion experience during/after visiting Medjugorje on the one year anniversary of the first apparition. With a great deal of humour, she shared how her life in broadcasting experienced highs and lows, during which time, the Holy Spirit touched her and “healed her head”.
At the meeting, we decided to hold two fundraisers in May.
GARAGE SALE: Thursday, May 1 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.; Friday, May 2nd from 4 p.m to 8 p.m. and Saturday, May 3rd from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. It will be held at 5403 – 15 St.
