CWL Diocesan Executive
Directives & Reports
Welcome to a new year with a new National theme:
CARE FOR OUR COMMON HOME.
This theme allows us to delve into many environmental
actions as we transition from Inspired by the Spirit women
respond to God's Call. We continue to respond to God's
call as he inspires us through environmental challenges.
These include reducing, recycling, repairing, reusing and
even refusing. We need to rethink what we do and use
each day to reduce damage to our Mother Earth.
Our new National President, Anne Gorman asks that we
concentrate on the issue of WATER. We live in the land of
beautiful lakes but we must remember our brothers and
sisters who work hard each day to supply enough water for
their families and themselves. We must work towards educating
others about the importance of keeping our waters clean. I know
you will come up with wonderful activities within your councils to
highlight Anne's theme. We will still be working on Homelessness
until the Provincial election in July when Anne Madden finishes her
term and our new Provincial President will take her place.
The 85th Timmins Diocesan Convention is approaching and
I look forward to seeing many of you there!
With God's blessings of Peace & Hope
Audrey; Timmins Diocesan Past President
