Catholic Women's League - Celebrating 100 years in 2020!
ALL MEETINGS ARE CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
May is quickly approaching and with that comes our turn to deliver meals on wheels. Of course there are a few new protocols this time around but nothing we can’t handle. For instance, all recipients of the meals now have to have a cooler outside their door where we place their meal. We do not go into anyone’s residence. There may be other instructions regarding picking the meals up at the lodge and returning the containers but we will inform you about that once we know.
So we are looking for volunteers for May. If you are able to help out, please call Pat Hefferan at 780-675-5759, 780-881-1205 or email her at to schedule yourself in. For this time only, you may need to take a spouse with you or someone you live with as your second helper to maintain physical distancing as required.
We thank those who have helped us in the past and those who will sign up now. The recipients appreciate our assistance very much.
CWL year in review.
The CWL continues to assist the parish in any way they can. The long list includes, but isn't limited to: helping with RI, Sacramental Prep, Children's Liturgy, church cleaning and decorating, various ministries in the parish, attending Mass at the Lodge, Extendicare and Long Term care. We organize the annual Parish Chicken Supper, Meals on Wheels for May and October, and Shrove Tuesday Pancake supper. Funeral luncheons are prepared with love.
CWL donations are directed to charities in Athabasca (Road to Hope, Santa's Anonymous, Good Samaritan Mission, All Saint's Kitchen, Community Christmas Dinner), and to Catholic Missions in Canada. We also sponsor a child through Chalice. Throughout the year we also give money to assist withthe Sponsorship of St. Gabriel's Chalice Child. The annual Father Demarais award of $200.00is presented to an EPC graduate. Donations were also given to the Triumph of the Cross for the Youth Rally in Lac La Biche.
