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.
